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).

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.

It saw Echo & The Bunnymen at the height of their commercial powers, with the album dropping the band's biggest hit 'The Cutter' onto a baying public. But it also saw the band in it's least commercial mindset, producing a dark, experimental and purposely difficult album. Indeed, the recording of 'Porcupine' was famously marred by in-fighting and looming threats of a band split. It must have been a bittersweet time to have been one of the Bunnymen

The group's third album is a solid outing, a noticeably better listen than its predecessor, Heaven Up Here. Songs are intriguing and elaborate, often featuring swooping, howling melodic lines. Arrangements here owe a lot to 1960s psychedelia and feature lots of reverb, washed textures, intricate production touches, and altered guitar sounds.

Porcupine' is the "difficult" third Bunnymen album, which saw them moving away from the open spaces of their previous records into a claustrophobic sound. A dense guitar mesh is laid over every track, augmented by Shankar's electric cello. Listening to these songs is like taking a machete to a jungle of vines - every slash reveals something new, but you risk getting trapped in the foliage
