We gave it an A-

Of the five Echo albums that Rhino just reissued, this 1980 debut is a great place to start. While lead moper Ian McCulloch channels Jim Morrison on morphine, the rest of the quartet cranks out spiky post-punk riffs sharp enough to draw blood. Here’s where U2 learned their rattle and hum. Extras A crate digger’s delight — four live tracks and a handful of rarities.
