Released on May 4, 1984, Ocean Rain is the fourth album by English band Echo & the Bunnymen. Most of the album was recorded in Paris in early 1984, using a 35-piece orchestra.

"Ocean Rain emerges as Echo & the Bunnymen's most beautiful and memorable effort. Ornamenting Ian McCulloch's most consistently strong collection of songs to date with subdued guitar textures, sweeping string arrangements, and hauntingly evocative production, the album is dramatic and majestic" - Jason Ankeny of Allmusic
