Editorial Reviews

Champ is the much-anticipated new album from Tokyo Police Club, due out on June 8th on mom+pop. The Newmarket Ontario quartet was hailed by Rolling Stone as poised to become the biggest Canadian export since Molson and Champ delivers on that promise. Produced by Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Beck, the Vines) and led by the infectious new single, Wait Up (Boots of Danger) , Champ is a huge musical step forward for the band.
Champ follows up the band s 2008 debut album, Elephant Shell, which was celebrated by the likes of GQ, Elle, Spin, Rolling Stone and more- not to mention appearances on The Late Show With David Letterman, The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson and Desperate Housewives. Champ s release will be followed by an exhaustive world tour, with the band already confirmed to tour with Passion Pit, appear at this year s Coachella and Bonnaroo festivals, before headlining their own dates

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely perfect!!! June 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
i was nervous that this album would disappoint in comparison to Elephant Shell, but i was very pleasantly surprised. Tokyo Police Club may have topped themselves with this one. the entire album is outstanding and original! stand out track: "Favourite Food"

4.0 out of 5 stars Champ? June 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I think the songwriting was compromised on this album. There isn't a Tessellate or In a Cave, but for the most part the album is still addictive and has catchy hooks, which I like. The first track is the best track, favorite food, and every track after that kind of falls short of duplicating this awesome track, but it does flow into one almost conceptual album under the umbrella of "champ." which i give them credit for. You'd have to try this yourself. It doesn't blow my socks off at first, but it still seems like TPC has something more, some more potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun album July 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I'm writing this review while listening to the song Wait Up (Boots of Danger) which is why I named the title of the review "fun album." It's just a fun song to listen to that puts you in a good mood, much like the rest of the album. If you enjoyed Elephant Shell I don't think you'll be disappointed with this one. You will definitely find yourself tapping your foot to the songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album EVAR October 29, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album kept me alive this summer, driving to work and what-not. Very upbeat and catchy, I found myself singing every tune at the top of my lungs before long.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good album. December 31, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's a really good indie album. It has an emotional fell that I found myself in the mood for quite a bit, kind of hard to describe. I don't love every song, but the majority are really quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album November 20, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
It took me a while to buy this one. I initially heard 'Breakneck Speed' and thought that song was very well done and catchy. Though I have to admit, the first few times I listened to the record I was not thrilled. But it grew on me quickly after that. 'Gone' is probably my favorite on the record now. I have enjoyed this album quite a bit. It is definitely worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars More sophisticated, yet not as good? May 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Catchiness" is funny thing to me, because as easy to love as it is, its also kind of cheap. "Champ" is more complex, more understated than the previous album, "Elephant shell", but its also not as catchy. "Champ" includes some slower, more sentimental songs that are new for the band, such as "Favorite Food" "Breakneck Speed" and "Hands Reversed". The more upbeat songs like "Favorite Color" "Frankenstein" and "Bambi" are all well-written and fun, but still aren't as gritty and upbeat songs from the last album.

Overall, really smart band and both albums are 5 stars.
