First off, I've had this CD since the week it was released, an acquaintance who works at a record store flipped me a promo copy because nobody else who worked there wanted it. That is because they were FOOLS and bought into the conventional wisdom which stated that Echo & the Bunnymen without Ian McCulloch was not Echo & the Bunnymen. Their loss, my eternal gain: From the first instance I played this CD it earned a place of respect even if I really had no idea what was going on here.

I had heard of Echo & the Bunnymen during the 80s when some of their cuts turned up on post-punk compilation records (anyone remember "Life in the European Theater"?) but to my credit or shame was unable to distinguish between the voice of McCulloch and surrogate Echo, Noel Burke. I also had no idea the drummer had died in a motorcycle accident, that the keyboard player was more of a hired gun who had augmented their live sound and been a session guest in the past, and could have given a rat's rear end that McCulloch's solo work from this period was where the "purists" leant their approval. After playing it for a few people I was informed that the record was "bogus", that it represented a "sell out" and that I was "stupid" for liking it. People ...

This is a FABULOUS collection of alternative pop songs tinged with a not so subtle psychedelic flavor that was quite the rage at the time thanks to the explosion of Manchester pop/punk pre-rave music headlined by Happy Mondays, The Farm, New Fast Automatic Daffodils, Stone Roses, etc. It was danceable punk lite that you listened to while you were tripping, essentially, and unlike some of the garbled babblings of Sean Ryder or the trite simplicity of The Farm, there is actual substance to these songs.

One of my favorite things about this album is that it pisses off Ian McCulloch so much. It's too bad that people couldn't get over the fact that they didn't change the name after Ian left. Who the hell cares what their name is if the music is good?! Why should Will and Les give up the name recognition that they spent years building up when they were just as entitled to it as Ian?

This is a fantastic, creative album featuring some of Will Sergeant's finest guitar work to date. McCulloch's replacement, Noel Burke, did a fine job in the face of a near impossible job, writting clever lyrics and melodies, and certainly delivering the goods live. The psychedelic sound that the B-Men played with during their early years is cranked up on Reverberation, which features sitars, tablas, farfisa organs, and wonderful production by Geoff Emerick (who recorded a little band known as The Beatles).

It's truly unfortunate that so many people chose to ignore this fantastic album over something so petty. And the truth is, if you corner most Bunnyfans, they will admit to loving it just as much as I do.

Do yourself a favor and buy this album. And if you can find the two singles that they released independently, "Prove Me Wrong" and "Inside Me, Inside You", get them too. Not only are they excellent, they are super collectable since they only made about 500 to 1000 of each of them.

And if Noel Burke ever sneaks a peak here at Amazon to read the reviews of was a short ride, but it was fantastic! I wish you would have made more music. Cheers!

Don't get me wrong, the original lineup of Echo and the Bunnymen was about as good as its gets up through "Ocean Rain". I have no idea what Ian McCulloch was thinking when he split for a solo career after the "Grey Album"; maybe he thought he was bigger than the rest of the band, maybe it was hard to stay with the others because of all the internal friction (usually created in the press, due to his mouth). But what did he expect the other three guys to do, simply wither away?

I know a lot of EatB fans say, "'Reverberation' is a good album, but they really shouldn't have kept the name." That's a pretty laughable comment these days, considering that EatB still exists, but only contains two original members, Ian and Wil Sargeant. The lineup that recorded "Reverberation" was Wil Sargeant, Les Pattinson, Jake Brockman (who, for all intents and purposes WAS a Bunnyman, seeing as he had played keyboards for the band on albums and on the road for years), Noel Burke (a singer who had previously been in St. Vitus Dance), and Damon Reece (who has since gone on to hit the skins for Spiritualized). So Echo and the Bunnymen Mark II had just as many, if not more, true Bunnymen compared to the current lineup. They deserve the name and don't diminish it.

"Reverberation" is an awesome album. It has the playfulness that was sorely missing from the Grey Album. Wil and Les lay down the guitars and bass that have always been the backbone of the Echo sound (the absence of Les' bass is SO noticeable on "Flowers"). Noel can turn a phrase just as well as Ian without being a jackass in the press (Mr. Burke, by the way, went on to teach grade school, while McCulloch ruined his voice with cigarettes).
