Dear Fellow Bunnymenheads,
I agree with your criticism over the poor liner notes, especially the lack of lyrics. However, the track sequencing was done like this on purpose, since it is in the original UK release order, not that of the US release.

I don't understand why we are being sold extra tracks in here that were not "extra" but a part of the original album. The order is all messed up. They could have done a better job. The album cover is so small. What gives? This is one of the best albums ever and it deserves better.

1. The song sequencing, as with the Psychedelic Furs' rematered & reissued masterpiece "Talk Talk Talk", is inconsistent with the album version, which almost caused me not to buy it at all.
2. The "extra tracks" are considerably lamer than currently available boot versions of songs from the same era. In particular, when are we going to get the full 1st EP with original cover art?
3. The liner notes are pretty hilariously ill-informed and detract from the music within, which still moves mountains, but is choking to death on a corporate slab.
Open letter to those responsible for the Echo reissues: check out the stellar job done on the 1st 3 Police albums for how it's done. Artwork, tracking, absence of schlock-ola. I like that.

Ever since I got them a couple of weeks ago, I've been of the opinion that if you don't have the first four Bunnymen albums (this, Heaven Up Here, Porcupine and Ocean Rain) then you don't deserve to call yourself a music fan. Harsh? You bet. But seriously, these albums will hugely improve the quality of your life. They faded fast, but from 1980-84 Echo & the Bunnymen were quite possibly the best band in the world. Exciting, psychedelic, danceable, melancholic - this band could capture every emotion ever expressed by popular music and fire it back in your face.
Crocodiles is possibly the best entry point into Echo & the Bunnymen's world. Although not as sweepingly magnificent as Heaven Up Here, as accomplished as Porcupines or as beautiful as Ocean Rain, and possibly wearing its influences on its sleeve a bit more than those others, this album makes up for all that by featuring one of the best collections of tunes ever committed to tape. Rescue, Pride, Pictures On My Wall, Villiers Terrace and Stars are Stars are the highlights, but everything here achieves a brilliantly unique and accessible mixture of moods.
Oh yeah, and the album cover's really cool.

Strangely(or maybe not if you consider the band's attitude towards the media)Echo&the Bunnymen never did achieve the stardom that seemed well whithin their grasp;meanwhile they watched successive generations of bands cribbing their sound and reaching the popular heights they never really got to(U2,Radiohead,Coldplay).
Their debut album"Crocodiles"and 84's"Ocean Rain"both rank high among the 80's best recordings.
"Crocodiles"is a powerhouse of emotionally heartfelt songwriting,musicianship and sheer talent by each element of the band.From Pete De Freitas' claustrophobic drums,Les Pattinson's ambient setting bass,Will Sargeant's"second,only to Marr"guitar playing and of course Ian McCulloch's passionate vocals(part Jim Morrisson,part Ian Curtis)the band's classic lineup was as cohesive as it was brilliant."Rescue"was the big single,of course,(such a hooky riff!)but the compelling"Villiers Terrace",the rocker"Stars are Stars",the fantastic"Pictures on the Wall"or the Julian Cope co-written"Read it in Books"could all have staked claim of chart success.
