    There's something disconcerting about Siberia's familiarity. [Dec 2005, p.111]

    McCulloch's misplaced his mystique, and resembles a pub singer with an over-extended tab, while Sergeant's guitar lines settle lazily at long-drawn borders. [Oct 2005, p.94]

    Siberia is an excellent return to form for Echo & the Bunnymen and easily the band's best album post reunion. In fact I'd go a step furtherSiberia is an excellent return to form for Echo & the Bunnymen and easily the band's best album post reunion. In fact I'd go a step further and say that this record ranks in third place behind Porcupine and Heaven Up Here. Excellent stuff! Full Review »

    I had very low expectations for this album, seeing as most "come backs" ultimately fail. This album is a glorious exception! Instead of I had very low expectations for this album, seeing as most "come backs" ultimately fail. This album is a glorious exception! Instead of singing about losing their baby, and all the things young people sing about, they're singing mature songs that are Echo 20 years on, and authentic. I can't stop listening to this album or singing it in my head, there are so many catchy and honest tunes. If you're an Echo fan rush out and get this, and if you're just someone who appreciates mature, complex glorious music, you can't go wrong! Full Review »
