Editors’ Notes

Champ finds Tokyo Police Club still working out their post-adolescent issues with a gleeful mockery that’s directed as much at themselves as the world at large. Singer/bassist David Monks continues to dish out barbed wit to friends and foes alike — “We’re the best and the brightest till the television’s on,” he declares in “Favourite Food.” Tunes like “Breakneck Speed” and “Wait Up (Boots of Danger)” deliver tasty dollops of venom to jittery dance grooves, propelled by Josh Hook’s guitar stabs and Graham Wright’s keyboard bursts. TPC taps into the faux-sweet bounce of early new wave in “End of a Spark” and settles into a languid throb for “Hands Reversed.” A spiky tempo and a bubblegum organ riff give “Not Sick” a particular cheeky charm. Amidst all of this smart-alecky fun is a note of longing and regret, heard even in hard-charging ditties like “Frankenstein.” Whatever you glean from Monk’s satiric spew, there’s no denying the twitchy beats and ear-grabbing textures in these tracks. Champ wins solid points for its style, energy and unflagging sense of irreverence.

Customer Reviews


I didn't think it would be possible to top A Lesson in Crime and Elephant Shell but they did it. This is their best record to date. From Favourite Foods to Frankenstein there isn't a weak track on this record. Boots of Danger is Amazing!!!!!!

a little disappointing

i'm a huge fan of Tokyo Police club have been since the beginning. i've never found a flaw in Dave's voice or in any of the other band members, so naturally i ordered this early expecting a wonderful showing, (i'd herd a bunch of the songs from Coachella) but the album version is a little bit of a letdown. the entire album is overly produced and lost some of the raw beauty that the earlier work possessed. none the less though it is a fabulous album one that's definitely worth buying.=]

Awesome, Did You Expected Anything less?

I have to say that this album will be named in many the best of 2010 lists
Bambi is just perfect, like Favourite Colour and Not Sick, i highly recommend to buy those tracks if you don't want the entire album.
but this album is very perfect on it's own like every album ive seen from this band (TPC Forever!), every track sounds perfect. you can't hate any of them because they sound very good and nicely finished
