what a nice surprise.... crocodiles are back with a brand new album. produced by james ford, who is also known as one half of simian mobile disco. if you loved crocodiles' debut album, you might feel a bit confused about "sleep forever" since it's really different.... at least to me. gone is the rough darkness. honestly.... don't we have enough bands that sound amateur'ish without being amateurs? that's why i really like their new album. it's a clean production without being "over-produced" and their new songs are extremely powerful (just listen to the new single "sleep forever" or the great "stoned to death"). i see some similarity to bands such as glasvegas, but without the drama.... and/or frightened rabbit, but with more power. it's only 8 songs on the album, but they work pretty well together. i am in love with this album.... after 2 plays!!
