Mysterio is a valuable listen for fans of Echo & the Bunnymen who did not keep up with McCulloch between their 1988 breakup & 1997’s ‘Evergreen’.

Mysterio showcases some of the same brilliance which led the rock press to dub Echo the next U2 & includes his excellent cover of leonard cohen’s ‘Lover Lover Lover’, one of the singles alongside ‘honeydrip’. Mysterio is an underappreciated album worthy of investigation. Standout tracks include ‘Magical World’, ‘Dug for Love’, ‘Close Your Eyes’, & ‘Damnation’ which is enough to make this a strong album. This reissue features lyrics, notes & 18 bonus tracks, including all the non-album tracks from the associated singles and a further six rarities.
