After being introduced to The Chameleons by the late, great John Peel in 1983, I bought this album and it changed my life.
I'm not going to analyse each song because every one is an absolute classic, and the album as a whole is pure genius.
It still amazes me that they never reached superstardom because their songs could easily fill stadiums the world over. Unfortunately, they never got the recognition they deserved because they wouldn't compromise the music or their image to sell records, but those of us who were there know that we were part of something special. I urge anyone who hasn't heard of The Chameleons but who likes early U2, Bunnymen, Psychedelic Furs, Verve, Interpol, Stills, Longview, Engineers, The Open, and yes even Coldplay, to buy this album now!
Occasionally when talking to strangers about music you hear "..aah, so you like The Chameleons then?" ...followed by the knowing smile of a secret shared. Awesome.

I am the proud owner of well over 500 cd's/LP's..and I can honestly say this is way and beyond my favourite... This album captures (more than any other I've heard)the time of it's recording..but unlike many of the similar releases from the early 80's..SOTB has transcended time and trends and remains a relevant classic to this day...With swirling guitars,occasional atmospheric synths,driving bass and drums and powerfully sung lyrics which still have real meaning even to people hearing them for the first time 20 years later,this album has all a good rock album should have..But it goes one step further...from the opening film sample of Don't Fall to the trailing beauty at the end of View from a hill it has an atmosphere and a quality that's very rare,even rarer in a first album release.
Some say the Chameleons could have been the next U2.Some say they were like Echo and the Bunnymen.Some say should have have comprimised in order to sell more records..But most who give them a proper listen say that their lives have been change..just ever so slightly...But always for the better..GT

"Script of the Bridge" is an astounding debut album, certainly the finest UK rock album of the early 80's. The Chameleons are influenced by the early Psychedelic Furs/Bunnymen/Cure but what makes them stand out is the fine production, inventive, imaginative lyrics and above all the melodic compositions. This is all fused with a powerhouse delivery which none of their influences ever managed in the studio. Echoes of the Beatles and 60's psychedelia can be heard on this album too. "Second Skin", a six and a half minute opus, is the centrepiece of the album, ethereal yet displaying all the best elements of alternative indie guitar rock. Other highlights include the spine-tingling, beautiful, then rocking Monkeyland, the driving opening track Don't Fall and the album closer, View From a Hill, with its achingly beautiful closing refrain that stays in the memory. Mark Burgess's lyrics, centering on the lost innocence of childhood and love are wistful yet never turn into self-pitying dirges. The twin guitars of Reg Smithies and Dave Fielding are backed by discreet, atmospheric keyboards which are subtle and have remained fresh. John Lever's fine, distinctive drumming propels the album through its 66 minute duration. A superb effort which deserves to be held alongside other 80's luminaries of the Manchester indie scene. A classic that is finely crafted and will appeal to many whilst retaining a distinctive sound of its own. Also recommended are the Chameleons' early singles collected on the Fan and the Bellows alongside What Does Anything Mean?Basically, a worthy second album.

I was in the Hacienda in '83 and saw them play. "Good " I thought but nothing more. In '85 I was in York waiting for Spear of Destiny to come on stage and the Chameleons walked out and played the best live set I have ever heard. Hundreds of us stood in the rain and were mesmerised by the sheer power and beauty of this band. I urge, no beg , fans of guitar bands to listen to this album as it is probably one of the best albums from THE best band ever to hail from Manchester. Beautiful truly beautiful.

I bought all the Chameleons albums at the same time after being given a few of their songs on a mix tape and it was like discovering that you'd actually been living on another planet. Fantastic musicianship, superb quality control and a depth of feeling that is almost unheard of in popular music. SOTB, for me, was a grower. A few of the songs are instantly appealing (Especially Up The Down Escalator, which is mind blowingly effective) all of the songs in time found a way to my heart (Some took years!) I would concur that Second Skin is utterly awesome (Although after a thousand spins it doesn't have the same effect as it once did.) This is an album that no self respecting fan of alternative rock should be without.

THE best album from THE best guitaring band in the world is how I would simply describe this offering.I have owned this album since it's original release date back in 1983 and nothing has ever compared to it.The title track 'Don't Fall' begins by jumping out of the speakers,grabbing you by the ears and demanding your attention.Reg Smithies and Dave Fielding's guitar playing are absolutely fantastic from the fast pace of 'Up the Down Escalator and A Person Is'nt Safe' to the haunting melodies of 'Second Skin and Less Than Human'.If you are a guitar fan who has never heard the Chameleons before my recommendation is BUY THIS ALBUM NOW,you certainly won't regret it.
