Biography

Alongside Switzerland's Celtic Frost and Sweden's Bathory, Germany's Helloween were possibly the most influential heavy metal band to come out of Europe during the 1980s. By taking the hard riffing and minor-key melodies handed down from metal masters like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, then infusing them with the speed and energy introduced by the burgeoning thrash metal movement, ...

In order to understand and appreciate this album you have to forget what Helloween released before and after it (especially the 'Keeper of the Seven Keys' albums).

Musically the album departs from anything the band has ever done and concentrates on experimental hard rock with melodic metal, blues, jazz and mainstream influences. By changing musical direction, Helloween break some more boundaries but in other fields of music...

This is considered by many as Helloween's worst album, but I strongly disagree! Most fans and critics disliked and dismissed Chameleon because it didn't follow the band's trade mark power metal sound. While this is true, the album is technically outstanding, it offers tons of variety and is an overall great and daring experimental offering.

Chameleon is a long album and there surely are a few weak songs to be found here. But due to the fact that the music is experimental and at parts progressive nothing really bad can be said, as everything depends on musical preferences.

In my opinion, there are some very strong and memorable tracks on this album:

"I Believe" is one of the longest songs on the album and one of the heavier ones as well. The best way to describe it would be epic hard rock, with strong riffing, memorable guitar solos, topped with vocal majesty. "Giants" is probably the album's heavier piece and the only one truly deserving the metal tag. The riffs are memorable, the solos are technical and long, the vocal lines brilliant and the chorus catchy as hell.

"When The Sinner" is one of the more mainstream influenced tracks, but is very well done and catchy.

Format: Audio CD
I will admit Chameleon is and always has been my least favourate Helloween album on a personal level but actually writing a review of this album and more importantly forgetting the fact it was done by Helloween and the connection with Power Metal it aint half bad.

Chemeleon is world famous for the huge Helloween failure album and sellout, which ever you'd like to call it for perhaps intentionaly right, but for the wrong reasons.
One of the main reasons for Chameleon's long-lasting downfall without a doubt was the fact that they essentially let loose a "progressive rock metal" album on a power metal crowd with no progression leading up to it.

Quite simply the musical scale was too far apart to avoid upsetting alot of dedicated fans, which of course they did in spectacular style i think bewilderment and surprise would have been fitting adjectives not least that Chameleon was and still is Helloween's poorest selling album, no surprise there then but does all this mean the album is actually bad though? not necessarally!

A mix bag is probably not the right term to describe the set of songs here but more of experimentation, accoustics, sixties jass, metal riffs and commercial choruses which are all here and are on a technical level done well, but being a progressive style album these elements cemented together really just don't quite work, unforunately all the entire album follows suit right to the last note.

Positively speaking the musicianship is very very good as always and vocally it's also excellent, even mature to some extent, however the idea of just melding lots of different genre ideas with other genre ideas of a world apart is just a disaster recipe, and here it evidently shows.
