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

This is literally one of my favorite albums of all time. Even if you're not a huge fan of Tokyo Police Club, this album will change your perspective. All of the songs flow beautifully into one another and express interesting themes-- growing up, the love of a parent, alcoholism, falling in love for the first time, and other somewhat cerebral topics. TPC's musicianship is absolutely stellar for this album as well, and the mixing is done with great care as to reflect that. They certainly seem to have grown since the last album.

Champ belongs in every indie musician's CD collection, without a doubt. You will not regret purchasing this album. It's phenomenal. Crunchy guitars, biting (yet clever!) lyrics, smooth electropop synth, and heart-pounding drums drive the songs into the listener's heart. These adorable Canadians will sneak their way into your heart by the time you're done with the third track, for sure. Get this album! Stat!

Solid album all the way through. Great mix of indie rock & pop. The drumming is kinetic & up beat. Vocals are catchy & full of sing along choruses. The guitar play really stands out - bright tones, hooky riffs & creative use of effects (I hear some Russell Lissack (Bloc Party) influence on the guitar work). All the parts come together nicely here to make up a really good album from start to finish with high replay value.

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.

"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.

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"

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.

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.

How have I missed out on this group? This album is the best album I've heard in a long time. There's not a single song here I don't love and that's not something I generally say about albums I enjoy this much. Do yourself a favor grab this gem immediately, you won't be sorry.
