I started listening to them because I heard their People are Strange cover. Ocean Rain is easily my favorite. Great band.

Is it just me or is Crocodiles the greatest debut album ever released? Ocean Rain is probably the better album, but Crocodiles really rocks. The bass playing is out of this world.

Like most everyone else Donnie Darko was where I first heard them. Donnie Darko introduced me to a bunch of 80's music actually. Echo and the Bunnymen definitely stand out as a favorite though.

I have come to the conclusion that everyone should own Ocean Rain.

I'd put Ocean Rain below Crocodiles & Heaven Up Here myself.

Bunnymen albums in order of preference....

Heaven Up Here
Crocodiles
Ocean Rain
Porcupine
S/T

If there was justice in the world, Echo would be one of the world's biggest bands, U2 wouldn't have made it out of their hometown, and Ocean Rain would displace Sgt. Pepper from the top of all those incredibly biased "top ten albums" lists.

And am I the only one who wasn't introduced to Echo by DD (a film I've never seen?). I got into them accidentally when a track on a compilation a friend gave me was mislabeled as Pictures On My Wall, by Echo & The Bunnymen. I found a copy of Crocodiles and it was so f---ing good that I didn't care that the track wasn't the one on the mixtape.

Heaven Up Here is incrediable! The Bunnymen's 1st two releases are absolute dark edged gems, but Bono and U2 got all the good reviews, which caused the B-Men to lighten up and become more commercial. I think they started to slide on Porcupine.
