This album shows the world exactly what they missed. Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart is more than just the most accessible of the Camper Van back catalogue, but could very well be the single most eclectic album ever. Strong words you might say, but from the beginning to the very end, front man David Lowery and Camper Van pull off classic blends of crunchy pop-rock and traditional European folk music. From the opening of The Eye of Fatima and O Death (a million miles from the old time banjo version by Doc Boggs) to the rock 'n' roll rollercoaster of Turquoise Jewellery, the quirky toe-tapping of Change Your Mind, Tania's fun polka and the lost pop anthem of Life is Grand. All this and more mixed up in a tightly bound bundle of psychedelic irony.
