At this late point in their career, Echo & The Bunnymen don’t innovate, but refine. The Fountain is the band’s fifth studio album since their reformation. None of their reunited efforts has matched the exploration and excitement of their ‘80’s work, but The Fountain has its moments of charm that any loving fan will surely welcome. Singer Ian McCulloch fits the bill of swooning Britpop singer. He might not have Morrissey’s fearless sense of adventure, but he’s got a toughness and bravado that gives the spacey shimmer of “Everlasting Neverendless” a firm grip on the ground. “Proxy” takes a ‘60s pop tune and filters it through the production advances of the decades, adding an extra layer of distortion and a wall of sound that can’t be broken into separate pieces. “Think I Need It Too” uses a melodic bass to drive its point home. For a ballad, “The Idolness of Gods” sways with ballroom glitz. Echo & The Bunnymen once set the standards. Now they must scratch and claw to maintain them.
