CRITIC REVIEWS

The Line of Best Fit

Crimes of Passion is a stellar fourth effort and may prove to be the defining record in what surely will be a long career ahead for the Crocodiles.

Crimes Of Passion finds Crocodiles in scintillating form and is full of the kind of carefree rock that should make them more popular than they are.

80
Under The Radar

Without a doubt, this is their strongest and most cohesive collection of tracks to date.

80
AllMusic

Crimes of Passion works on two levels then, both as an expression of the duo's uneasy, uncompromising vision and as a catchy, easy-to-digest pop album.

80
DIY

Despite Crocodiles' unabashed lyrical rawness, ‘Crimes of Passion’ is absolutely artistic, though, and at times they are beautifully poetic.

70
NME

An album of washed out, happy-sad, semi-psychedelic sounds that glower as much as they gleam, it’s perfect for those 3am mornings when you’re full of alcohol and regret.

70
No Ripcord

Despite being nothing original, Crimes of Passion comes off a good rehashing of the genre, making you rethink what Jesus and The Mary Chain's Just Like Honey really meant.

70
Consequence of Sound

There’s an edge to these songs, a kind of darkness burning through the fuzzy, reverb-heavy pop.

Noisy power pop, groovy and tasty.
OK, it reminds lots of the past, but still stays fresh!
