Camper Van Beethoven: Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart (Virgin) ***½
Michael Azerrad, Rolling Stone, 11 August 1988
CAMPER VAN Beethoven, the long-time champ of college radio, has burst out of the indie underground with a strong major-label debut that boasts better songs and a better sound than ever before. Even if the pristine production, by Dennis Herring (Timbuk 3, Lords of the New Church), spiffs things up a bit, the band still sounds like a house party at the United Nations.
