    Their sky-scraping melodies may not enjoy the same reverence and ubiquity as, say, The Smiths' catalogue but these rearrangements are magical. [Nov 2018, p.105]

    This latest peculiar twist in the Bunnymen saga affirms the songs resilience, as well as the virtue of bravery. When the new versions mimic their predecessors, the project feels redundant. [Nov 2018, p.93]

    For The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon, the original scally mystic has orchestrated a selection of old songs with a missionary zeal. [Nov 2018, p.27]

    The Cutter and Rescue both build on their VU-esque original templates, and as always Will Sergeant plays an understated blinder when asked, but it's hard to see many fans going back to these recordings instead of the originals after a curious first listen.

    Apart from the two new songs that bode well for future albums of original material, there is absolutely no reason for Echo fans to choose a spin of The Stars, the Ocean & the Moon over another listen to the songs in their original perfect state.
