A couple of recent quotes:

Online fan JAY D. said:
“To me, LC7 is the perfect combination
of melodic power pop and innovative Zappa / Beefheartian elements. Both of which are probably my favorite genres of music, but I never figured any band could blend the two.”

and DAVID SHIRLEY, in The Brooklyn Rail:
“The band''s music . . . is a sometimes delicate, sometimes not-so-delicate balance of extremes, from sweetly crafted ballads and bright Beatley pop . . . to the tense, angular phrasings of progressive rock and modern jazz. And it''s all somehow pulled miraculously together by an insistent, psych-rock inventiveness that, for all the band''s musical nostalgia, owes more to the loft studio than the garage.”

“Dann Baker and Love Camp 7 have made the rare record that pursues and thoroughly captures the spirit, if not the sound, of post-Pet Sounds Brian Wilson . . . I haven''t invested in their back catalog yet, but I have to assume from Vacation Village that previous reviewers have been correct, and that Love Camp 7 are one of America''s most neglected treasures”
—Splendid Webzine

And from the past:
“Live in Las Vegas is a pop-psychedelic masterpiece.” —Bloomington Herald-Times

“One of the 5 most underrated bands in world history.”
—Pretty Decorating

“Easily the best psych-pop band in America today.”
—Jim Santo

“They can rock out when they want to, and they want to on most songs — but only for a little while, then they abruptly change direction. They''re like a big funny guy who unexpectedly asks to borrow your eyeglasses. Confidently loopy without being comical and arty without being arch, Love Camp 7 comes up with either the oddest hooks or the hookiest oddities. And they occasionally turn the guitars up real loud.”
—David Greenberger, Trouser Press website

“Remember how you felt the first time you heard Robyn Hitchcock''s Fegmania? This is a thrill of that order . . . pied pipers of post-punk pop leading us back to our imagined childhood.”
--Alternative Press

Where the Green Ends (1993):
“The best cd of the month . . . under the dense and tangled sound is concealed a rich core that turns each of these 14 songs into a small jewel . . . achieves a rare level of excitement . . . a melting pot of styles, yet free of any cliches, a quality that makes it almost impossible to do the Love Camp 7 sound justice in only a few sentences."
—Subline (Germany)

“When the wide-branching rhythm of language is made into music, when bands take the effort to think of each sentence in musical terms, then the result is either unlistenable art noise, or a rich, blooming musical cosmos, as is the case with Love Camp 7.” —Spex (Germany)

Eponymous Debut EP (1990):
"LC7 works with dissonance and achieves beauty, not easy to do in the pop genre.” —Dave Ehrich, Wire
