Bivouac Takes No Prisoners
08/02/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bivouac would be on my desert island disc list even if the drummer were not my son. This album has as much energy, wit, verve, power and love and alienation and depression and insight as any I've ever heard except, perhaps, Jawbreaker's other efforts. What a band ought to be and this record is about that as well. Honesty, honest."
Nearly Perfect

"I bought this out of Blake's hand at a random show my friend recommended in 1992. To this day it might be the best $7 I've ever spent as far as the number of hours of pleasure I got out of it.From the opening track "Shield Your Eyes" containing the primal growl in Blake's voice, the fast chord based guitar that is a Jawbreaker staple, well above average drum work by Adam that almost but not quite overshadows Chris' bass work (catch the odd key change near the end of "Shield...") this is track by track one of the finest punk albums. Sure Blake later wrote a song claiming not to be punk, but you can't tell from this one. "Face Down" and "Like a Secret" are also great tracks. "Chesterfield King" probably the best drum work. The title track which became the closing song of nearly every Jawbreaker set closes the disc in a classic, imploding, punk-feedback, aural assault.What's now considered Emoticor (emo) probably never would have reached the radio status of today without Jawbreaker getting signed to Geffen. Unfortanately, this also caused a great band's end.This is on my imaginary "10 on a desert island list.""

"Stirring lyrics, music, sound. There is nothing from this trio that is just "okay". Jawbreaker is the band, easily my all time favourite. My only regret is that I never saw them live."
