A blistering powerhouse slam dunk. Beat-your-ass drums,
flaming guitars, high-octane vocals, massive tune. Heavy
rock emotions in motion. Touchdown!

Can you tell me how am I supposed to feel
I’m losing sight of everything that’s real
When you’re hypnotised left standing like a stone
Like a disillusioned technicolour drone

Here comes the explosion

TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUMS – ‘Strange Times’ – THE CHAMELEONS…

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘Strange Times’
THE CHAMELEONS

Released: 1 Sept 1986
Third longplayer

ALL MUSIC wrote: “If there was a should-have-been year in the Chameleons’ history, 1986 would clearly be it, and Strange Times demonstrates that on every track, practically in every note. Signed to a huge label, with production help from the Dave Allen/Mark Saunders team who worked on the Cure’s brilliant series of late-’80s records, The Chameleons delivered an album that should have been the step to a more above-board existence on radio and beyond.” Score: 4.5/5 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: I still can’t understand why The Chameleons/Mark Burgess‘ highly gripping, captivating and stirring songwriting didn’t touch much more troubled
souls around the globe. ‘Strange Times’ was/is their foremost achievement. A heavy-hearted masterwork.”

THREE TOP TRACKS: Tears / In Answer / Swamp Thing

* TEARS – melancholic lullaby

* IN ANSWER – mesmerizing pearl…

* SWAMP THING – irresistible electricity…
