Editorial Reviews

Digitally Remastered and Expanded Version of the Bunnymen's Second Album. The Mood of this Affair is Much Darker and More Intense Than their Debut Album "Crocodiles". The Songs Tend to Be More Atmospheric and Textured as Well. Highlights Include What was the First Single "a Promise", "All I Want" and the Breathtaking Studio Version of "Over the Wall", which was First Heard on the Live "Shine So Hard" EP that was Issued Between Albums. The Five Bonus Tracks Include an Extended Version of "Broke My Neck" and Four Previously-unreleased Live Tracks. The Package also Includes New Liner Notes and Plenty of Photos in the Booklet, Housed in an "o" Style Slipcase.

Let me begin by saying that I buy and listen to a lot of music.
Magnity Interactive Music Buyer
Infused throughout with simple, raw energy and vigor, this album is a stunning testament to the power of group dynamics at its very best.
Micah Newman
This album does not disappoint, and for new fans of the band, I recommend this as a jump start to the greatness that is the Bunnymen.

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.

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.

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.

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."

One review of another Bunny disc described this one as "messy." My question is: What were you listening to--a bad bootleg of Heaven Up Here? This is possibly the greatest album ever made. Of course, I'm prejudiced being a Bunnymen fan and all but it's as close to perfect as any album ever released by any artist period. Here's a tip, turn off all your lights in your home and listen to this album in the dark and then tell me it isn't magical. That voice of Ian McCulloch is in top form and the guitar shards slashed out by Will Sergeant esp. on Heaven Up Here are intense, manic and beautiful all at the same time.

Echo & The Bunnymen were the first "cool" band I fell in love with. The album art is incredible, the name was cool and "strange", and most importantly the music was awesome, from the lyrics to the atmosphere. I love all their work and this one took the longest to get into, but became my favorite, right next to the brilliance of Ocean Rain. Porcupine was my favorite on first listen and Crocodiles is always fun so there is a lot of competition. This is the darkest of the 4 and maybe that is why I love it. It also rocks out as powerfully as any album I own so maybe that is what pushes it over the edge. The CD starts with "Show Of Strength", edgy and powerful, setting you up for a fight with the outside world and personal demons, this song transitions to "With A Hip", a really cool song that carries the flag filling you with a rush of adrenaline. Next is "Over The Wall", a powerful song you can't escape, drawing you into a magical world and not letting you up. The next two songs do let you relax a bit until "Heaven Up Here". This is one of my favorite songs ever. Ian's demons are all exposed and he is giving everything to escape this world while at the same time giving into its dark pleasures. He fails to escape and acknowledges his pain in the truly sad "The Disease". One of the darkest tracks to be written about the futility of life. The Bunnymen aren't afraid to expose the pain of reality and this is another reason this CD is so powerful. This atmosphere builds until "Turquoise Days" where the tension builds to the most incredible adrenalin rush of all time recorded on CD where you feel like you can grab the world by the balls and crush it. The CD than lets up a bit allowing the listener go to a world where we must take pleasure in the simple things to find any comfort at all in "All I Want". A work of genius.
