5.0 out of 5 stars "...what on earth are you talking about?", 14 Sep 2005
This review is from: Script Of The Bridge (Audio CD)
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.
