Album of the Day
World Without End
Frequently compared to Echo and the Bunnymen, The Mighty Lemon Drops added more than a drop of jangle-pop to the Bunnymen's blend of post-punk and neo-psych, but to judge from the outstanding WORLD WITHOUT END, the Wolverhampton, U.K. quartet needn't stand in anyone's shadow. Produced by Tim Palmer, the Sire set brims with Rickenbackers, strong melodies and melancholy lyrics on ten originals including “In Everything You Do,” “Closer To You” and “Inside Out” (which is as catchy a song as anything released in 1988). Insistent and memorable throughout, WORLD WITHOUT END ranks among The Mighty Lemon Drops' mightiest.
