Even if i'm an optimistic guy, this is the kind of topic that makes me feel nostalgic, because i was a 18 years old guy in the early 80's.
The killing moon is one of my all-time fav tune.

I feel like seeing Jim Morrison live, at least in the later part of his career, would not have been very fun. I imagine the audience would end up feeling very awkward...

I think Ocean Rain is their best, and yes Silver is a beautiful song! Echo and the Bunnymen are one of my favorite bands from amongst that whole post punk sound; they released so many fantastic albums. Heaven Up Here is great too, but not like Ocean Rain.

As far as I'm concerned you could put them Crocodiles>Heaven Up Here>Ocean Rain>Porcupine.

Real shame they never made it as big as they could have,however the recent singles arn't much cop.

Add The Chameleons to that statement too. Another fine 80's band.
