Echo & the Bunnymen recorded “the greatest album ever made”, according to their lead vocalist Ian McCulloch, and more than a few would agree with him. Ocean Rain, from 1984, contained the hit singles “The Killing Moon”, “Silver” and “Seven Seas” and is a fine listen now, too. One more studio album, 1987’s Echo & the Bunnymen, was released before McCulloch left the band to pursue a solo career in 1988. That record sold well (UK No. 4), and was a small American hit, their only LP to have significant sales there.
