I believe I said I'd comment on the new Echo and the Bunnymen album, so:

It's not hard to see why people are hailing this as the ultimate Return To Form: sonically, it's more similar to their eighties work than any of their other reunion albums. Or specifically, their self-titled fifth album. Which is all well and good, but...man, you gotta have the tunes. The songs *may* be better on average than those on Flowers (though not Evergreen), but there's just nothing that really stands out. "Mildly pleasant" isn't really much of a recommendation for a song. At least Flowers had a few standouts that gave the album a reason to exist. But this one...meh. What's the point? Shrug.
