Porcupine is the third studio album by the English post-punk band Echo & the Bunnymen. It also reached number 137 on the American Billboard 200, number 85 on the Canadian RPM 100 Albums and number 24 on the Swedish chart. In 1984 the album was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry.

The Bunnymen hit the ground running, and their debut album is a stunning statement of purpose, with McCulloch already in full dramatic swing and the band at their most straightforward- any band that uses as much reverb as this one is hard to label "raw," but "Pride" and "Do It Clean" nonetheless hit hard, and "Rescue", with Sergeant's massive opening. The Bunnymen mellowed to a degree for their fourth album, the widely acclaimed Ocean Rain, but all it did was cause them to get weirder. The album is stuffed with queasy midtempo tracks and bizarre orchestration, but it's by no means impenetrable. The strangest song, "Yo Yo Man" limps through skewed verses, building to McCulloch's refrain, "I'm the yo yo man/ Always up and down," which triggers a startling interjection by vigorously bowed strings, percussion and Sergeant's spastic guitar.

Echo & The Bunnymen. Porcupine ‎(LP, Album). A rather big disappointment following the promising "Heaven Up Here" album. I think the main problem is that many of the tracks are drawn out too long, they don't contain enough ideas to justify their length. Reply Notify me Helpful. My copy came with a poster of the band.

After Echo & the Bunnymen had finished recording Porcupine they played a free show in early November 1982 for 20,000 people at Sefton Park in Liverpool. Following this, WEA asked for three music videos and album art for the new album. The band's lighting engineer Bill Butt was chosen to direct the videos and Brian Griffin was chosen to take the photographs for the album's cover – as he had done for the band's two previous albums. With a budget of £16,000 Butt decided that it would be possible to get the photographs for the album cover and also.

There is no comparison Between things about to have been Missing the point of our mission Will we become misshapen? A change of heart Will force the nail Nailed to the door To all avail. There are no divisions Between things about to collide Hitting the floor with our vision A focus at some point arrives. A change of mind Will force the nail To hit the head And set the sail. There is no comparison Between things about to have been).
