Re: Chameleons

Drew,This is a great album, though likely not as solid throughout as such former glories as Strange Times or Script of the Bridge. Still, tunes such as "Dangerous Land", "Anyone Alive" & the aformentioned "Indiana" do rival their earlier material. Gotta give the lads credit for retaining the majestic sweep of their earlier material, while also being imaginative enough to add rap vocals to the ambient tune "Miracles & Wonders". Just so you know , there was also another release "Skin" that came out around this time with some lovely re-workings of old classics such as "Caution". Incidentally, I was fortunate enough to see two consecutive nights in SF, November '01; can't recall if Steve accompanied me. Shame that they had to call it quits again in early '03 - for the second time, do to inner discord. Wo knows if we'll ever hear from the mighty Chameleons again ?
