The Chameleons-Script of the Bridge

Is the reason this band never received all the hipster cool points because their album covers have always sucked it hard? I'm not sure what accounts for the reason why this amazing album can still be found in the dollar bins, yet so many of their peers get all the hype. So don't fall for the shitty cover, this is really a must have (if you don't already have it). It has all the elements that makes dark British post punk so great. It's melodic, and depressing, and yet still rocks. It's not an album that wallows in sorrow, but it definitely isn't some cheery romp in the sun. The band pretty much went down hill after this as they put in their bid for mainstream success, but you can't fault them for this one.
