5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for any Chameleons fan - FACT!, 28 Oct 2013
This review is from: The Reegs: Definitive Collection (Audio CD)
I'll keep this review short and just say that if you are a Chameleons fan ie obsessive then this is something you MUST own!
This is Reg and Dave's project from the 90s.
There shimmering, shiny, jangling, atmospheric guitar work is much more to the fore, asyou would imagine and they do not dissapoint. But these guys werent just noodling, they have crafted proper, intense, catchy songs, many with vocals, that will live with you.
Many of the songs here are as good as anything on any Chameleons album, in fact "Chorus Of The Lost" could even be up there with Soul In Isolation or Swamp Thing (not Second Skin, nothing touches Second Skin!).
"Savage Garden", "Turn It Up", "These Days", "As You Leave", "Goodbye World" are just a few of the many highlights on show in this fantastic collection from a sadly neglected band. Also, their cover of The Kinks "See My Friends" is excellent.
And two songs are highly entertaining as they are joined by 'The Clockwork Poet' for some John Cooper Clarke styled verse on "Jesus Came To Manchester" and "Snooker Hooligan", both putting a smile on my face every time I hear them.

So if you love The Chameleons, please please introduce yourself to this collection!
