5.0 out of 5 stars Smart, Fresh Indie-Pop 6 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
Do you like Belle and Sebastian but are turned off by that twee approach? Are you tired of cool posing, shaggy haired, tight jean wearing hipsters but love indie music? Have you been dying to listen to something that's unpretentious, original, and undeniably smart....then you've come to the right place. BC Camplight's Brian christinzio has been on a mission to strike a blow to "fake scenseter music". His weapon?? 11 piano based songs that mix Randy Newman, Gershwin, Brian Wilson, Badly Drawn Boy, and The New Pornographers with BC's own brand of self depricating and often flat out Psychotic subject matter. From songs about killing his ex-girlfriends father (Emily'd dead to me) to dating a circus performer (Parapaleejo) to outwardedly admitting his uselessness as a human (Couldn't You Tell), the American BC opens up his rumoured "shizoid" mind up for all of us to take a gander. From heartbreakingly beautiful to disturbing and creepy....please don't let this one pass you by.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Worth The Hype! 13 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this album on a tip from a friend whose musical taste I actual distrust. So I went into this listen expecting another mediocre pop effort from another mediocre song writer. Was I ever wrong. BC Camplight (or Brian Christinzio to his friends) suprised the indie-pop world by master crafting one of the most melodic and inventive records this year....and it's a debut. Hide, Run Away drifts in and out of influences ranging from Todd Rundgren, Burt Bacharach, Brian Wilson, Henry Mancini, Jon Brion, The Cars, Randy Newman, while maintaining it's unmistakably original identity. From bossa nova groves to 80's style synth dancers BC Camplight has a knack for mixing styles without losing the continuity of his record. What sets BC apart from other indie-posters is his unretentious approach to lyrics whixh are self depricating and oft creepy. Please listen to this record if your a dan of melody and originality.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT! 2 Sep 2005
By jon - Published on
Format:Audio CD
BC Camplight is Burt Bacharach, Randy Newman, Brian Wilson, and Badly Drawn Boy rolled into one delicious songwriter. Beautiful melodies, eccentric and unique production. This one should help eventually launch BC into the upper stratos of indie pop.

4.0 out of 5 stars yes, this album is awesome 10 Mar 2006
By Robyn Lee - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Since I can't write a better review than what's already been written, I'll just say that I agree with what everyone else has said so far. Besides "Couldn't You Tell", other standout tracks are "Blood and Peanut Butter", "Parapaleejo", "Richard Dawson"...yeah, a lot of em. Pop! Timeless! Catchy! Sweet! Weird lyrics! Not annoying!

I wanted to add that if you can see him live, DO IT. He's a great performer and funny as well. The one time I've been able to see him so far, he sang beautifully and was in good spirits despite being sick.

4.0 out of 5 stars obviously talented 10 Sep 2005
By Tom in Texas - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is a good disk. In fact very good. However it's a bit frustrating because there are flashes of absolute and utter brilliance....Then there are parts that are a bit forgettable.

In a just world "couldn't you tell" would be a top 10 hit on the radio. "Emily's dead to me" is quite delicate and beautiful. "Hide, run away" is also very good. This guy definately has a knack for creating hooks and emotional tension in his songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant Classic 17 July 2005
By John Stevens - Published on
Format:Audio CD
When I first got this album into my office I was expecting a much different sound. As I played it I realized that this was no ordinary debut record. This is a timeless collection of intelligent pop songs presented in an unpretentious and honest manner. Tracks like "Blood and Peanut Butter" and "Couldn't You Tell" are packed with pop perection while "Emily's Dead To Me" and "Wouldn't Mind The Sunshine" explore a more subtle, soothing tone. BC Camplight have somehow managed to turn their influences (Burt Bacharach, Todd Rundgren, Ben Folds, Brian Wilson) into a unique and inspiring sound tour de force. This record has the potential to set a new standard in indie-pop and maybe, just maybe, other bands will stop looking at themselves in the mirror long enough to give this band some songwriting competition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clearly one of the best debuts of 05' 29 Aug 2005
By red lerner - Published on
Format:Audio CD
BC Camplight didn't make a perfect record but his debut "hide, run away" clearly marks the arrival of a true talent. His writing style, which has been compared to Burt Bacharach and Randy Newman, along with his macabre lyrics and humorously modest approach are a winning combination. Check out this cd if you are a fan of Todd Rundgren, Brian wilson, Randy Newman, Burt Bacharach, and Belle and Sebastian.
