The Coals Records release is a determined 13-studio track display of the quartet's maturing song writing and refined arrangement prowess, tastefully peppered with keyboard and horn accents throughout. Fine raga rhythms are explored early on the title track and the funky, You Nailed Me. Mid-record the Chameleon seems to change color; shifting from the anthemic You Are Here into the pounding, gritty turbulence of I'm Sorry Babe. Delilah broadens the color gamut mixing dark, moody soundscapes with tight time transitions. The band seems to vibrate over the latter half of the record climaxing on the epic finale, Shell. Dreamin' ..s a multi-faceted picture of a colorfully adaptive reptile with clearly defined expectations of it's sound and image. -Brian Zickafoose ViZiWORX Creative Studio Electric Chameleon is a rare animal indeed. The funky rhythm section is so tight that it belongs in a jam band, while it's nastier blues-rock riffs suggest a heavier genre. The smooth, smoky vocals play as though over nu-jazz, yet swing with a Polish of pop. It's hard to imagine it could mix so much together and still find an identity, yet the music is so filled with catchy hooks and original energy that it shines making Electric Chameleon a young band to be on the look out for. 'Excerpt from The Roanoke Times Phantom Critic' 'Electric Chameleon is one of the most promising acts on the music scene. They are one of Martin's favorite and most consistent acts. Great song selection and vibe every time!' -Jason Martin, Martin's Downtown.
