Echo and the Bunnymen, "Ocean Rain"
Review by: Diana
Ian McCulloch's powerful vocals showed the extremes of a huge range. The band was in their prime lyrically, stylistically and conceptually. Whether haunting or happier, the songs and lyrics fit into a nautical theme. Rather than synthesizers, they included a lush string orchestra. It's a timeless work of art. Their song Killing Moon was in the opening of Donnie Darko. Plus, Ian McCulloch's peacock hairdo was something else.
