5.0 out of 5 stars A Never Ending Inspiration 19 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you're reading this review, you're already likely to be a Chameleons fan. After all, this is an album earmarked for people who already have the songs on other albums but who yearn to hear them again, albeit with from a new perspective.
So, do I recommend it?
You bet I do.
Buy it...turn off the lights and pull the curtains...put it in your machine and press play...then simply listen, relax and lose yourself.
I did...and for one glorious moment I was 18 again...

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Is it any wonder' this is a first class album 30 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
Having been a student in Manchester in the early 80's I was lucky to have seen the Chameleons live several times and have their first three albums on vinyl (also now on CD for convenience). I still play their music more than any other band in my collection - there seems to be a timeless quality to their music that refuses to be pigeon-holed.
Back in the early 80's though I was an angry young man and played my music loud. I didn't really care that the sound quality on the records wasn't brilliant, the Chameleons were! Now I'm in my 40's and a little more mellow I still play the early stuff but enjoy the more recent CD's even more. I think Why Call it Anything is a great album but This Never Ending Now has been a big surprise. It is like a greatest hits album where every song has been reworked in a new and fresh way. Not as 'unplugged' as Strip but a more acoustic, mellow and melodic working of some great songs. Also, the recording quality is exellent - probably the best production of any Chameleons CD. Mark's vocals are clear and the guitars are sharp and well defined. Even my wife will happily listen to this album, whereas I usually only play the early records at the required volume when she is out of the house! Whether you have been a Chameleons fan for 30 years or have never heard them before you should get this album. You'll still be playing it in 20 years time!

5.0 out of 5 stars No Wonder I Feel Like I'm Floating On Air 6 Nov 2009
Format:MP3 Download
The Chameleons were my favourite band of the 80's. At the time some of these songs were the soundtrack to my teenage years. To now hear them again acoustically is magical. To also regard the songs in present tense is comforting too.

Anyone who is a fan of The Chameleons needs no review comments to influence them to purchase this album. For those who are new to the sounds, bear in mind that these tunes caressed our ears electrically with "delay" effects on guitars etc.

Consequently, cut down for acoustic enables us to experience new chemistry with the old songs making them evocative and attention-grabbing as always.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purists Beware 28 Mar 2009
By Thomas C. Depuydt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Purists Beware!! This isn't a greatest hits album. It's a collection of re-recorded Chameleons songs done acoustically and it's superb. The songs resonate with honest melodic sound that will instantly captivate you. If you haven't added this to your collection. It's a must. I buy a great deal of music every month and rarely listen to something so often as I have with this release.

2.0 out of 5 stars Better out there from ChameleonsUK 16 Jan 2005
By R. Olson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge fan of the Chameleons UK and saw them in the late 80's. They're incredible! I was pleased to see that they were back at it again. This cd is nice from the standpoint that it was great to hear them play, but the disc is mellower and tamer than their previous works. If this is your first intro to the band it may disappoint. Script of the Bridge is a much better intro to the boys. This disc had some soft spots that just made me feel like the I was getting old(I already get that feeling enopugh). The reworking of "Swamp Thing" just makes you yearn for the original. Some of Mark's vocals just seem too coffee-house and the power guitars are sadly missing. The lyrics and songs are all quite pleasant.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Chameleons unplugged! 10 Nov 2003
By Gardner C. Christensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I think this is my favorite album of all time. I don't understand why Chameleons are not top 40. They are pop geniuses. The Fan and the Bellows is the perfect opener. Chameleons vocals have never been better. Mark Burgess is the greatest. He leads the band through old and three newer songs. These are my favorite versions. If you are a Chameleons fan this is a must. If you have never heard them this is a perfect place to start!
Thanks,
G
