Format: Audio CD
Early output from NZ psych-popsters The Chills, relased on the Flying Nun label. Exceptional writing from Martin Phillips: haunted melodies; reverb Vox organ; great guitar lines; fabulous lyrics. Imagine The Seeds, Television, even early Fall. A truly great band who deserve critical reappraisal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Album is even better than listed 11 Sept. 2016
By Carl S.Lederman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Album is even better than listed. This is actually the 2016 deluxe edition. 24 tracks on 2 CDs, not 18 on 1 disc as advertised.

5.0 out of 5 stars some of the best pop the kiwis have to offer 3 Aug. 2004
By Davy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this here is a collection of the chills' early singles, etc. and it's probably, speaking critically, the best thing they've put out. not all, but most of their "classics" are here, including the legendary "pink frost" and "i love my leather jacket." the thing i like most about this album is the feeling of being totally immersed in kiwi pop culture. of all the kiwi pop albums i've heard since spring (and that's quite a lot), this one sounds the most authentic. people always say that something they love is "transporting", but they rarely mean it. well, i'm going to say it AND mean it, right here: the chills' _kaleidoscope world_ is...transporting.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of The Chills Best 14 May 2017
By Lincoln Howard - Published on Amazon.com
Amazing album by an amazing band. There are about four "blockbuster" songs on this collection I'd consider to be 5 Star-Rated Songs: Pink Frost, Don't Even Know Her Name, Satin Doll, and Doledrums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the Year at the 1997 Lincoln Howard Music Awards! 2 Nov. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm still amazed at the quality of this album. It doesn't have one of two fabulous songs, it has about five or six. Not to leave out the rest of the album, because the whole thing is great, but the songs I would single out as being among the best ever recorded would be: Satin Doll, Pink Frost, I Don't Even Know Her Name, and Doledrums. A few others follow closely behind. And I would like to go on record by saying the end of "Doledrums" is the best part of any song I've ever heard in my life. How Martin Phillipps put that one together I'll never know, but spending the $14-15 dollars or so is worth it just to hear the end of that song. Well worth your money if you like melodic music that paints a picture of the macabre in a lot of the songs. Dig it...

5.0 out of 5 stars sheer brilliance 5 April 2007
By Ludwig J. Pluralist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love a lot of Kiwi alt rock bands, and while the Chills may not be my favorites (that would have to be the wonderful band The Clean), this is, nevertheless, a wonderful, brilliant record. Filled with quirky details and loaded with lo-fi charm and appeal, this is what great rock music sounds like, and it's the best recording by this talented band (it's actually a compilation of different EPs). It also has one of the catchiest pop-rock songs ever written, the amazing I Love My Leather Jacket.

I only wish Kaleidoscope World were still available for purchase. I also wish the Chills would consider a U.S. tour, but alas, they seem content to stick around their home country and to play only the occasional show.
