Echo and the Bunnymen 

Siberia (Cooking Vinyl)

It's been a brilliant year for the rejuvenation of British post-punk icons. First, New Order resurfaced with the surprisingly vital Waiting for the Sirens' Call, and now Echo and the Bunnymen are back with Siberia, a rousing return that finds co-founders Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant channeling their trademark angst into lush anthems like "Stormy Weather" and one deliciously bitter title track. There are missteps, to be sure -- "What If We Are" is a tribute to the glory of love that's better suited for Michael Bolton -- but there is sufficient evidence here that, after nearly three decades, the Bunnymen remain a creative force. Who knew?
