Format: Audio CD
Echo and The Bunnymens spectacular Television inspired debut "Crocodiles" was part 1 in an installment of the best run of albums of the 1980's, even better than U2's "Boy" To "Joshua Tree" and one record longer than The Chameleons "Script of the Bridge" to "Strange Times".
Spikey, raw and punkified in places yet pyscadelic and acidic in others "Crocodiles" effortlessly meshes pounding rhythms, choppy guitar and the youthful but authoritative vocals of Ian Mculloch.
Highlight "Stars are Stars" is the epitome of a cold starry night perfectly capturing its sense of claustrophabia and despair and marks Mcullochs first of many lyrical masterpieces'.
Although Guitarist Will Sergent would only reach artistic maturity and achieve genius on the bands follow up "Heaven up Here", his minimalism is very poignant and his echoey tones on "Monkees" make for another stand out track.
"Villers Terrace", "Pictures on my Wall" and "Do it Clean" (available on re-issues) are counter anthemnic, post punk perfection and early Bunnymen favourites. Macca's Bowie meets Iggy vocals and the musical mastery of the Bunnymen eleavate "Crocodiles" way above there peers U2 and the Teardrop Explodes' debut offerings. The Bunnymen would better this record twice, firsly with the swirling, brooding forever autumn briliance of "Heaven up Here" and then with the ice cold "Porcupine" but its still stands the test of time.
Lovely Stuff.

Faultless! The inclusion of 'Read it in Books' on here as a bonus track makes it outstanding. Still this is the debut album that had everything and still does. See you at the barricades. When I got this to replace my vinyl and got that dark brooding vibe with its hint of malice and threat it was flashback time. Revolutionary stuff and all of that young man angst and insecurity. It all happens at 'Villiers Terrace'.

From the opening bars of 'Going Up' you actually feel that you are - right up - until the extended outro on 'Happy Death Men'. That's how the vinyl finished anyhow, but then you have the bonus tracks. The inclusion of the 'Let it Shine' EP Live stuff is a dream. I'd never heard 'Simple Stuff'! This is a great reworking of the original album.

Debut albums don`t get much better. If you enjoy your music dark and melodic, this is for you. From the opening track, Going Up, this album never fails to impress, with 8 out of the 10 tracks being superb, with the other 2 only making brilliant status. Crocodiles and Rescue are obvious favourites, while Stars are Stars, Monkeys, Villiers Terrace, Pictures On My Wall and All That Jazz, are Bunnymen classics. The only downside to this album is that it has to end. Buy it and be better for it.

Lover come back to me. Oh those heady days of pop/rock passion. Echo and the Bunnymen with their fantastic debut album. ‘Going Up’, ‘Stars Are Stars’, ‘Rescue’, ‘Villiers Terrace’. All stunning songs and dark urgency of purpose. “I caught a falling star. It cut my hands to pieces.”
The follow up ‘Heaven Up Here’ (also part of this series of digitally remastered Bunnymen albums) was enjoyable enough but I think the band were already, slowly, losing their way.
The inclusion here of the deliriously good ‘Do It Clean’ and the vitality and power of the four live tracks from the Shine So Hard EP emphasise that these early years were the peak of their output and make this the best reissue I’ve bought in years.

Few bands have produced as great a debut; literally as good as please please me or the stone roses. In many ways the record has since haunted the band because they were never quite able to equal it. whilst others have produced many lesser records and yet have become bigger by chance or persistance (notably u2), the bunnies have cruely faded into obscurity. Their greatest hits cd was superb, and proves that this brilliant introduction was not all the group achieved. This psychedelic record is amazing, what would oasis or the strokes give to produce this kind of record?

Crocodiles in undoubtedly one of the greatest debut albums ever, easily as great as any you could name, e.g. Horses, The Stooges, Music from Big Pink, Marquee Moon, Roxy Music etc. It remains my favourite Bunnymen album, though Ocean Rain (1984) is probably more accomplished; the influences of Bowie & Television are apparent, but advanced on with considerable aplomb (especially if you hear the earlier takes of songs like Pride here, or the drum-machine assisted Peel Sessions). Where Ocean Rain takes advantage of strings, Crocodiles defines the band sound- the tight rhythms of Pete De Freitas & Les Pattinson, the angular guitar of Will Sergeant & the vocals of Ian McCulloch. Follow-up Heaven Up Here (1981) would be too much of a self pitying whinge for me; Crocodiles is perfect though- autumnal & melancholic. I didn't get into the Bunnymen till the late 80s (my introduction was the brilliant compilation Songs to Learn & Sing), so this album (as the Teardrops' Kilimanjaro) reminds me of autumn 1989, a Proustian location evoked by this album!
The production largely comes from Dave Balfe (Teardrop Explodes) & Bill Drummond (KLF), though Pride & Rescue were produced by Ian Broudie (Big in Japan, Lightning Seeds) back in Liverpool. Going Up is the potent opening track, building up from a wall of guitars to a pulsing guitar driven anthem- it's coincidental that The Stone Roses (1989) had a similar opening & that it was recorded at the fabled Rockfield studios in Wales. Stars are Stars, moving beyond the Bowie-isms of the Peel version, is an absolute highlight- up there with Ocean Rain & Pictures on My Wall as my fave Bunnymen track. Seemingly infinite who can but be blown away by those pulsing guitars & McCulloch's poetry "I caught a fallen star- it cut my hands to pieces..."?
