    Put Summer Camp in the category of bands that are too good to ignore, but too uneven to truly embrace. Summer Camp is frustrating proof of that sad fact.

    In playing it this safe, Summer Camp is just another entry in an increasingly trivial catalog.

    While the album at large maintains the lusciously rich production levels (a marked improvement over their prior LP, which was a stodgy and undercooked thing) there are frequent moments where a self-conscious attempts to inject ‘maturity’ into the song writing undercuts their former charms.

Adults can play this album and remember their adolescence with joy and young people can have this as their soundtrack to their ongoing life. "Summer Camp" is simply a record that anyone can identify with. Key tracks are "Crazy", "Fighters", "Phone Call" and "Pink Summer". Full Review »
