Reviews Echo & The Bunnymen The Fountain

Echo & The Bunnymen

The Fountain

New record from the band blasts off with the first single “Think I Need It Too” and doesn’t look back. Will Sergeant’s guitar is prominent throughout, and Ian’s vocals still impress after all these years. “Do You Know Who I Am?” may be the hardest rocker on this collection, with driving drums powering the song along. But the quieter moments will make more imprints on the listener after a few plays. Check the title track for a reference, Sergeant’s guitar swirls around McCulloch’s vocals like the Ocean Rain days of old. But this is a band that is always moving forward, so hop on board and go for a pleasant ride.
