One of the Best albums of the 1980's. really., September 11, 2005

Telephone Free Landslide Victory Telephone Free Landslide Victory available on February 04 2015 from Amazon for 12.98
this is one of my favorite albums of all time, and the vibes are completely amazing. this is definitely one of the best alternative albums ever produced. rather than being a "Simple Plan" or "Staind" (pick your own sorry new band) Camper wasn't just after the money, but had a vision. don't mistake the fun and whimsy of this album for a lightweight record. it's ska/punk/alternative, and done in a better way than ANY of the bands that followed in their footsteps. along with winning, sarcastic lyrics (most notably on "Take the Skinheads Bowling"), this album has some of my favorite all-time ska instumentals, the best (to me anyway) being "Yanqui Go Home". though it seems barely held together, there is also a sense of cohesion to the whole thing. this edition of the album is the best one to buy because it puts back in some long lost instumentals, and two tracks that never appeared anywhere, (Wasting all your Time, and the "Bonus Track" after the fab Abiguity Song).

Okay, OBRS is great, II and III is very good and Key Lime Pie is growing on me. But this, Camper's first effort, is still my favorite. It took a little time, though. Like a lot of people probably did, I bought it because I heard Take the Skinheads Bowling and expected to get more of the same. Well, there is no other Camper song like Take the Skinheads Bowling. In fact, there are really no two Camper songs that are alike (although the intro to Key Lime Pie sounds suspiciously like "Devil Song"). So, this one sat in the case for a while before I started giving it a whirl all the way through. Once I did that a few times, something strange started to happen: I found myself really enjoying these strange, folksy, Eastern instrumentals and oddball-yet-not-too-smart-alecky lyrics. Songs like "Wasted," "Club Med Sucks" and "Ambiguity Song" are too bizarre to ever be mainstream, but it doesn't feel forced, and there's always a little bit of commentary in there. It's not just goofball for...

This is one of those albums that had me hooked before I even heard the whole thing. It is a beautifully crafted album that flows wonderfully from song to song. It starts off with, yes, a ska song. After that, the songs bounce from style to style, some loud, some soft, some fun, some laugh-out-loud funny like "Where the Hell is Bill?" It is a great album to chill to.I recommend this to people who are tired of the head-banging of the eighties and the grunge of the nineties and want to hear something different. There is a lot of really good music that was made in that period that stayed under the radar and this is a perfect example. It neatly fills the gap between the Soft Boys and Pavement. I recommend it wholeheartedly and can't wait to check out the rest of the catalog.
