Rhino have embarked on a grand reissue mission and plan to put out all of the Echo & The Bunnymen’s first four albums. Here we have a remastered version of Ocean Rain on 180-gram black vinyl. It was the fourth of the band’s albums and was related back in 1984. It reached number four on the UK Albums Chart thanks to singles like ‘Silver’, ‘Seven Seas’ and personal favourite ‘The Killing Moon.’ The album got the band back to the top of their game after the rather less than warm reception to previous album Porcupine the year before thanks to its new found romantic sweetness and the band’s bittersweet melodies.
