    Overall La Costa Perdida goes down easy--maybe a little too easy.

    If you get past the fact that CBV aren’t trying to be radical or cutting edge, or even particularly contemporary, you’ll find a pleasantly undemanding, chilled-out record that’s the perfect soundtrack for all those warm summer evenings we’re crossing our fingers for at the moment.

    La Costa Perdida brings them full circle, back to their Californian roots. [Feb 2013, p.80]

    The band expertly navigates unusual, sometimes radical mood changes, with a maturity that forsakes some of its youthful friskiness without compromising an idiosyncratic vision that is just as compelling today as it was 25 years ago.

    Fortunately, the band that helped establish the early indie ethos remains as odd and unrepentant as ever.

    Even if La Costa Perdida isn't a great Camper Van Beethoven record, it does illustrate how unique this band still is, 30 years after it formed.
