This was the record that first got me listening to the Chameleons. It was knocking around in my girlfriend of the time's tape mountain, and it took a couple of plays before I took any notice.

Anyway, roughly twenty years later and it's still my number one. It always has an incredible ability to move me. In fact I'm so scared of it losing this, that unless I'm really sure it's what I want to listen to, I won't put it on! It has been with me through some really good and really bad times.

Obviously music is a personal thing, and I can't guarantee you'll love this record like I do. But read the reviews (don't take any notice of other bands namechecked in them - like many of the reviews say, the Chameleons don't really sound like anyone else) and look at the ratings of all their albums (the others are basically as fantastic). It's a rare band that gets such total and extreme adulation. Basically, if you like them, you'll adore them.

Likened to Sgt. Pepper's on release and then largely ignored by a non-too discerning press and public Strange Times is a testament to the power of Mark Burgess' songwriting. The arrangements tease a vast aural tapestry of unique guitar sounds and technological tinkerings all underpinned by rumbling bass and tumbling drums. Soul in Isolation is the album's zenith whilst Swamp Thing's intro made we want to be in a band. In short, this should mean everything to everyone.

I think Strange Times is a brilliant album definetly up ther with the likes of sgt. pepper and pet sounds for the sheer invention of each and every track.Its one of musics big tradgedies that the chameleons didnt take off and this (though they didnt know it at the time) would be there swansong (that is until surprisingly reforming this year and releasing the acoustic strip).Every track is a corker with one of the best intros to a song in mad jack and the brilliant melodies of tears but the highlite for me is soul in isolation i remember the frustration of working out the chords for these songs as i failed hopelessly to match the brilliant guitar work,i wanted to be in a band after i heard this i cannot recommend this cd enough one of my all time faves.

For the uninitiated, The Chameleons where an overlooked, vastly underated yet staggeringly brilliant post-punk rock outfit from Manchester, England. In there relatively obscure career they recorded 3 of the 1980's best alternative albums, there debut "Script of the Bridge", follow up "What does anything mean Basically" and the currently reviewed and pick of the bunch "Strange Times". Once in your never out, listeners may not be plentiful, but those that do get to hear the band inevitably fall in love with the mind blowing Guitar interplay thats somehow melodic yet Punky,the mesmerizing sheets of synth and the wordplay and punk vocals of ginger singer Mark Burgees.
"Strange Times" opens with a furious burst of nihlistic guitar riffing before the pretty damn full on drum and bass frenzy that is "Mad Jack" enters. Its growling unmistakable bridge hook of "ba ba da, ba ba" will lodge itself firmly inside your appreciative brain for ever. Self styled poet and frontman Mark Burgees hits you straight away with his lyrical prowess and uncompromising philosophy, "Ignorance is dangerous, and Innocence is bliss" all delivered in a striking Manchester accent that is more Coronation Street than Strangeways scally.
Track 3, the haunting and haunted "Tears" is a definite Chameleons career high-point, particular the "alternate" version available on most reisues of the LP, opening with a simple yet brilliant guitar arpeggio with swooshing feedback under it.
There is not one weak track on this album "Swamp Thing" perfectly exemplifies the whole Chameleons experience, sounding like the end of the world with its trademark synthesier and epic soundscapes, "Time the end of Time" urges us to "make the most of your tiiiime", then "Seriocity" and "In answer" are a truly heartbreaking pair of tunes.

AMAZING!
You can feel the wind and the rain on the Pennines as Mark Burgess sinks under the weight of this dark,edgy but brilliant eighties classic.
A mix of slower,brooding moody epics and short,snappy Julian Cope like pop songs, it is almost criminal that these guys were never bigger than they were.
"Soul In Isolation" and "Caution" are a mix of chiming minor chords and fustrated lyrics while "Swamp Thing" seems to be heralding a storm that will wash all of Manchester away, before a glimmer of hope summons in the end of the song.
Personally along with "Raintown" by Deacon Blue this has been my favourite "old" purchase of 2004...immense...moving and full of Northern elegance and musical dexterity!

The Chameleons sound was now fully developed, designed to be played loud and it needs to be to allow the full volume of music to escape, possibly the most expansive rock sound ever, to describe them as indie is like calling Adolf Hitler a bit radical, the soundscape they create takes your breath away. From the sweeping "Caution" and elegantly fragile "Tears" to the searing " Soul in Isolation" and anthemic "Swamp Thing", each track fits seamlessly into the overall majesty of this landmark album.
