    The last song on this album is named “New Horizons”. Unfortunately there are no now horizons on this one. If you expect Echo and the Bunnymen’s groundbreaking 80’s material you’ll be disappointed. Nevertheless, if you liked their albums from “Evergreen” and on, then this one does deliver the goods. In my humble opinion the band can and should try different directions instead of rely onThe last song on this album is named “New Horizons”. Unfortunately there are no now horizons on this one.

    Love the soaring melodies and sweeping instrumentals. Overall, a very good addition to their catalog. Give it a few listens and I think those on the fence will come around.

    Meteorites is a clarion call to all of their followers, from the Flaming Lips to Interpol, that Echo & The Bunnymen have finally come back to reclaim their rightful place back in front of the spotlight.

    Meteorites is the sound of a once-great band bursting into flames on re-entry.
