Camper Van Chadbourne is one of Eugene Chadbourne's best albums, and perhaps the best introduction to his weird world. He offers up his usual assortment of cover songs, medleys, and socially conscious originals, but what makes this album different is the participation of Camper Van Beethoven. Rarely does Chadbourne work with such capable accompanists, and the difference is pronounced. While Chadbourne still flies off on meandering guitar tangents and noise excursions, the instrumental talents of CVB provide a better anchor so that the individual tracks don't degenerate into chaos. Many of the original lyrics concern current events and consequently have become dated, but that's par for the course with protest music.
