No finer album,
This review is from: Strange Times (Audio CD)
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.
