Nonetheless, I adore Flowers because of nostalgia. McCulloch and Sergeant have maintained a bridge to the late 20th century, a time when my hair didn't recede and I could get away with back-combing. Of course, because Flowers doesn't maintain the urgency of Echo and the Bunnymen's early records, it's not the place to begin any investigation into their trippy delights.
It's an oddly satisfying melding of ominous atmospherics and light, 1960s zither-like keyboard work. It shouldn't work but it really does. Mid album ballad 'Buried Alive' harks back to 'The Killing Moon' from Ocean Rain. Flowers is an album of individually good songs. Or at the very least, decent songs.
