Album Review

Originally issued in Japan in 1999 (and later in the U.K. in 2001), The Best of Aztec Camera is an excellent overview of Roddy Frame's songwriting vehicle, collecting 16 tracks from throughout the group's history (up through 1993's Dreamland). The 1983 debut, High Land, Hard Rain, remains the best introduction to Aztec Camera's brand of witty, sophisticated, jazzy pop, but anyone wanting to dig deeper is easily advised to come here next.

Customer Reviews

Decent value for money, but LP extras are worthless

This collection neatly contains all of Aztec Camera's six studio albums and works out a good deal less expensive than buying the albums separately. It downloads to iTunes as six separate albums so you do get the main artwork image pertaining to each release. The iTunes LP feature is pretty lame however, adding only a short band biography and a few credits relating to each album. Oh and when you 'Play All' you get some random facts about Aztec Camera appearing every few seconds! The record company clearly hasn't gone to much bother — which is a pity because they could've added so much more.

Aztec Camera was the brainchild of Roddy Frame, a Scottish songwriter and vocalist whose precocious talent -- he was still in his teens when the band cut their acclaimed debut album, High Land, Hard Rain -- earned the band a loyal cult following. With Frame's knack for catchy, upbeat melodies and wordplay that often invited comparisons to Elvis Costello, Aztec Camera became a major critical favorite in the U.K. and the U.S., even as the band went through frequent personnel changes.
