This review is from: Club Ninja (Audio CD)
I'm afraid that after 'Fire of Unknown Origin' BOC ran out of steam. Only 'Imaginos' is a worthy addition to the BOC canon - probably because it was largely composed many years prior to it's release. Clearly the sacking of Albert Bouchard in 1982 destroyed the dynamics that made the band so special; after this Buck Dharma was the only member capable of ocassional moments of magic.
Club Ninja is a pretty lame affair, but in Perfect Water there is one golden nugget: it's one of the best tracks BOC ever recorded. Madness to the Method, Dancing in Ruins, and When the War Comes are decent tracks. White Flags is so-so. Rock Not War is embarrassingly, cringeingly awful. The remaining tracks are very poor. Definitely one for completists.
