Crocodiles (2003)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Release Date: Nov 04, 2003; Lead Performance: Echo & the Bunnymen; Genre: Reissues

While lead moper Ian McCulloch channels Jim Morrison on morphine, the rest of the quartet cranks out spiky post-punk riffs sharp enough to draw blood. Here's where U2 learned their rattle and hum. Extras A crate digger's delight -- four live tracks and a handful of rarities.
