Album Review

Those made of money who want to go ahead and take the plunge into full Chrome activity could do worse than to go straight to Chrome Box. The original release of the Box in 1982 served as both an overview of the classic Damon Edge/Helios Creed lineup and the inclusion of some extra goodies. Four previously released albums appeared in full — Alien Soundtracks, Half Machine Lip Moves, Blood on the Moon, and the compilation No Humans Allowed. Also included were Chronicles and Chronicles, Vol. 2, containing what at the time was unreleased material from the band; those two collections were made available separately later. Many years later, after Chrome had been reactivated by Creed following Edge's untimely passing, the band's new label, Cleopatra, continued its own sporadic reissue program with a full reprint and remastering of the Chrome Box as a three-CD set. This version also has the advantage of including the three Chrome tracks from the Subterranean Modern compilation on Ralph Records from 1979. These include a rather devolved version of "(I Left My Heart) in San Francisco," which was specifically essayed by every other band on the original compilation as well.

Customer Reviews


Take a risk and I will admit, at first, most of the songs will be hard to swallow through those delicate ear cavities of yours. But once implanted by the magical sounds of CHROME, you will be hard pressed to dismiss this early post punk band as anything but seminal and essential.

Ahead of its Time!!!

Chrome is one of those bands that you listen to and just get amazed over the fact of what they were doing for the time.

Their creative height is perfectly documented by this collection of Chrome's best years. Completely ahead of its time. Chrome was a band that would have been far more acceptable by todays experimental standards.


Gotta say - the greats are all here! I even went online to Cleopatras website to buy a band t-shirt which I totally rock EVERYWHERE until it gets dirty :-)


Formed: 1977 in San Francisco, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '10s

One of the original forefathers in the industrial boom of the 1980s, Chrome's amalgam of distorted guitars and vocals, samples from TV, and a raw punk aesthetic (inspired by the Stooges) became much more popular in the early '90s than it ever was while the band was around in the '70s and '80s. Although active for only six years, Chrome left behind a...
