CD is in very good condition

Channeling the lessons of the experimental Porcupine into more conventional and simple structural parameters, Ocean Rain emerges as Echo & the Bunnymen's most beautiful and memorable effort. Ornamenting Ian McCulloch's most consistently strong collection of songs to date with subdued guitar textures, sweeping string arrangements, and hauntingly evocative production, the album is dramatic and majestic; "The Killing Moon," Ocean Rain's emotional centerpiece, remains the group's unrivalled pinnacle.

------------------------------

1984 album from the Liverpudlian quartet. Following the more Rock-oriented material on their first albums, the songs on Ocean Rain were a departure. The aim was to make something conceptual with lush orchestration, but with a twist. The band employed a 35-piece orchestra for Ocean Rain. Guitarist Will Sergeant would later describe the finished recording as 'windswept; dark and stormy.' the Scott Walker / Love inspired string arrangements, unusual instrumentation, inventive recording techniques and McCulloch's abstract and bewildering mysticism all added to the unique and timeless quality of the album.
