I can't agree more with the "professional critic" above. What makes this album such a favorite among Bunnymen fans is exactly what keeps it from popularity. Think of "Heaven Up Here" as the anti-thesis to the band's self-titled gray album, and one begins to understand the animosity toward the latter. Whereas that release was like wading in a swimming pool, "Heaven Up Here" is like swimming against the current. Try as you might to keep up, there is simply too much happening to effectively take it all in at once. Ian McCulloch's voice acts as another instrument in the mix, collectively creating a tortured, sometimes dissonant, tapestry of sound. This is not to say that the album is without discernable melodies, as "Show of Strength", "Over the Wall", and "A Promise" prove. It is to say, however, that this is NOT a pop album by any means. It plays as a carefully considered, densely layered examination of human nature and interaction. As such, the casual fan or pop listener may not find much to like here. However, Bunnymen fans, particularly of Will Sargeant's kinetic guitar rushes, will find much to admire and cherish.
