When you get addicted to this band it doesn`t matter how expensive their releases are.
The Chameleons do not fall in that category. Once a fan, one tends to remain a fan forever. They really are that good.
The real challenge for any Chameleon's LP is trying to pick up a weak spot. They are talented musicians and lyricists, with great guitar harmonics and haunting lyrics of exceptional quality attacking the mundane and the inhumane at every opportunity.
This LP is an excellent selection from their first three LPs and a great way to introduce newcomers to their distinctive sound which, as correctly noted by others, does have familiarity to those who've experienced The Fall, the Psychedelic Furs and The Church.
One does struggle to pick favourites from this LP, even given the the relative diversity of style available. There's the soft and semi-acoustic "Tears", the terrors of "A Person Isn't Safe Anywhere These Days" and "Second Skin", the anomie in "Monkeyland", and the passionate "Nostalgia" and "In Shreds".
Yes, there's all this and more. Buy this and you will not be disappointed.
