By far Jawbreaker's rawest-sounding album, this one builds on the more straightfoward UNFUN by incorporating slower tempos and more nuances. This is probably their most difficult album to get info, what with Blake's harsh vocals and the somewhat-diminutive choruses, but when all is said and done, I'd say that it's tied with DEAR YOU as their best. Highlights: "Tour Song," "Chesterfield King," and the epic-sized title track.

I love jawbreaker and this is a good album from them. But I think '24 hour revenge therapy' and 'dear you' are better and would recommend picking up them first. But if you have them and was like me craving more jawbreaker then this is definately worth the money. JAWBREAKER ROCKS!!

This album is the only album I heard from Jawbreaker. Its really dark and gritty compared to there other albums. Chesterfield King is a perfect example of the melodic punk rock that has influenced almost every single damn punk rock band.

A lover and listener of music will quickly recognize Jawbreaker's 'Bivouac' album as their best effort. 'Unfun' first grabbed people's attention, but it was 'Bivouac' that confirmed their role as original and intelligent artists, capable of producing a dark, brooding classic. Such is the influence of this record, that it has ensnared legion of fans and it continues to ensnare new, younger fans every year --almost seven years after its original release. Brilliant. The best album I have ever had the fortune of owning.

As a whole, this release is perfect, but their are a few songs that stand out above the rest. These may be the best that punk has ever produced: Chesterfield King, Big, Shield Your Eyes, and the epic: Bivouac.

May I suggest that you do not waste another cent of your money on pop-punk's audio form of horse shit [assuming most buyers here are listeners of the said genre]. But I digress, I mean to say that has been and is the best album I've ever bought.

This cd is very good, however, it took about 4-5 listens for me to enjoy it but I am happy i was patient with it because now i love it. From Jawbreaker, I also own Etc. and Dear You which was deleted in 1995 but there are possible ways to get ahold of it if you look hard enough cuz I just got ahold of it. Etc. is a pure gem. Its a comp. of all jawbreakers unreleased and b-sides. Almost every one of the 20 songs on it is amazing and that is a Jawbreaker essential. Dear You is absolutely amazing and is known to be Jawbreakers best cd even tho it was deleted. However, it was after Blakes throat surgery so his voice is much more smoother and not as rough. Of the three, Bivouac is the worst one but i still love it. Unfun and 24hr revenge therapy are the ones i dont have but Unfun does not look too good but 24hr revenge therapy looks excellent so thats another Jawbreaker cd to look out for.

On this cd, the stand out tracks are shield your eyes, big, chesterfield king, tour songs, and the ten minute, gloomy, touching song bivouac. The cd goes from more upbeat songs that are 3-4 minutes long too deep songs at the end reaching 6-7 mins and finally bivouac which is 10.

Support Jawbreaker, the first west coast emo band. This is true and touching emo music w/ indie and punk influences. Im fucking sick of saves the day and get up kids and all those shit bands that are considered emo but only have whiny ass voices and artificial lyrics. Some other real emo bands to check out are rites of spring and embrace....both east coast bands on the dischord label that began in the 80's. Also, Horace Pinker is a newer emo band w/ Jawbreaker's Chris on the bass now and they are an awesome band worth checking out.

thanks buy all jawbreaker stuff they are fucking amazing and i have absolutley no regrets for buying any of their shit

jawbreaker is one of the very few emo bands i can appreciate.......

This CD wasn't a disapointment for the most part. The first couple of songs on this album were kind of disapointing but when venturing further in, after the first couple songs you'll come to find some rather complex and well made songs. I wouldn't reccomend this for people Just getting into jawbreaker, but it's good stuff, If you got the cash to spare, do it.

Bivouac, 24 Hour Revenge Therapy, and Dear You are three of the best and most compelling records I have ever heard in my short existance. Jawbreaker is the greatest indie band to ever come around the block. No one does emotional punk like these guys do. This brings us to Bivouac, the band's most under-rated album. This indeed is their best record, and probably the greatest record I have ever had the privlidge to listen to. However, if you are buying the cd version, you must play the songs in order of the vinyl version, because the inclusion of the Chestefield EP on the cd version completely ruins the feel of the cd. My advice? Buy the vinyl and listen to it in the dark during the deep depths of fall and/or winter. This is a disturbing record, and it will take a while to get used to, but trust me, it's worth the time. There will never be another Jawbreaker. Greatest record ever.

this album is pretty damn good, probably not jawbreaker's best, but it is still great. if you're a jawbreaker fan and don't have it, get it. if your just looking for something good to listen to, then also get it.

all things jawbreaker are excellent. Darker and grittier than unfun. I dont see why they always get called emo, if writing about a broken relationship is emo, then even fucking fred durst is emo.
