Building on the youthful vigour and dynamicism of 'Crocodiles', 'Heaven Up Here' is the Bunnymen's pinnacle of expression. On the cover the band are seen to walk on water, a miracle they achieve musically on each and every song. The record spawned only one single, 'A Promise', which can sound rather overbearing out of context. Here it is a glorious piece of the whole cloth.
Starting with 'Show of Strength', the drums and bass form a solid mesh over which the foghorn guitar swoops and wails. Mac cries out for recognition, his glorious melody confident enough that we can believe his magisterial romanticism. The rhythm guitar magically binds all of this together into a seamless whole, as the song roller-coasters to a jagged coda. 'With a Hip' derives from sounds heard in the industrial wilderness, and ends with a commitment to greatness. In between guitars build a tension that's released through thunderous snare shots. 'Over the Wall' is a midnight trip up and down the hillside, while a fog sweeps in and the doubts gnaw beneath the skin. Drummer de Freitas is a minor deity, here and throughout the album. That's only three parts of the wonder here on display.
The one b-side from this period, 'Broke My Neck', is thankfully included in its full version. Four previously unreleased live tracks are not up to the sound quality of 'Shine So Hard' but still beg for a full concert release, rather than being tacked on here.
This is the one called "Heaven" / And this is the one for me.

Format: Audio CD
After their raw, exuberant debut album "Crocodiles", Echo & the Bunnymen went back to the drawing board. They came back with "Heaven Up Here," and from the very first listen it's clear that this record is chock full of Ideas, man. It sounds a lot like four [possibly] naive young men trying to deconstruct rock as they saw it in the UK in the early 80's: all sleek, chic, and retro-redundant.

Punk arrived in 1975/76 to teach the dinosaurs a lesson, and while it quickly became a parody of itself, the movement galvanized the efforts (and turned the mental/emotional/spiritual wheels) of thousands of would-be musicians.

The Bunnymen, it would seem, took punk's lessons to heart, and although they dispensed of its machinations early in their career, "Heaven Up Here" could arguably be termed the best punk-influenced record ever made. While some of the sounds on the record seem dated and cliched by today's standards, it's important to listen to this music with one's mind attuned to the context of the Times in which it was released.

Guitars shimmer and glisten like raindrops falling into puddles, as the bass churns out hypnotic Nuggets/Krautrock-inspired riffs and the drums pound out cymbal-less, tribal rhythms. And then you notice the Voice: It soars, dives, drives, and fights with the music, sometimes all in the course of a single song. This Voice drips with drama and pathos, delivering cryptic lyrics that draw you into a strange internal logic that actually begins to make a lot of sense after awhile. After thirty listens, one begins to think, "Aha! This song really DOES mean something!"

Yes, you should probably buy this album. And once you do, remember this Tip: "Heaven Up Here" actually sounds even better on an overcast, rainy day.

Personally, I feel that this is the best Bunnymen album. For those of you that are into 'Goth' music and always wanted to check this classic band out, this is the album that would be best for you to start with. "Heaven Up Here" is easily the gloomiest and most angst-ridden Bunnymen release. Highlights include "Show Of Strength" and the moody bitterness of "All My Colours" ("That box you gave me/burned nicely") Similar in spirit to Joy Division and early Cure, this CD will not disappoint the post-punk enthusiast or serious Goth music collector.

First and foremost, I'm familiar with a lot of the Bunnymen's music; however, this is the only CD of theirs I will own. The rest of their music is bland, for my tastes. With that said, this is a great CD.

There is a mood that is haunting; it's engaging. The songs have energy in a subdued way, and the lyrics are powerful. I dare say that this is a "must have" CD for any collector of rock/punk music.

Even though there is not one mediocre song on this CD, I absolutely recommend "Over the Wall" and "The Disease."

These musicians have created a virtually unrivaled collection of songs in "Heaven Up Here."

I think I played this album 3x/day for 20 years. Okay, maybe for 15. It is pure energy. The way Talking Heads is energy but there's something more mystical about Echo's "Heaven Up Here" than any other rock album that I've found on earth. Something more philosophical and self-motivating as well. It becomes your album. As if you created it. And now you must act beacuse of it. The Cure get there in creating nostalgia and have some similar drums at times but are not as driving. Listening to "Heaven Up Here" is like taking a shot of oxygen (or vodka) and then letting a slightly jaded consciousness of the universe explode in your brain while the guitar riffs rip your spine out and the drums take you back in time, tribal-style. There are also more dark moments on the album as well as some strange, open sky, dreamscape moments which along with the mesmerizing lyrics may seep into your unconscious. Ian McCulloch's voice is ominous and there's something god-like and ancient about it that makes you want to believe him. Warning: Don't buy this album unless you want your consciousness and energy level to change. In the end, if you listen to it enough you may begin to realize that all you want is all you want.
