Strange Times is the third studio album by English post-punk band the Chameleons, released 1 September 1986 on the Geffen record label. Two singles were released from the album: "Tears" and "Swamp Thing". According to Chameleons frontman Mark Burgess: "The album was recorded at Jacob's Studio in Surrey, south of London over a period of five weeks.

If there was a should-have-been year in the Chameleons' history, 1986 would clearly be it, and Strange Times demonstrates that on every track, practically in every note. Signed to a huge label, with production help from the Dave Allen/Mark Saunders team who worked on the Cure's brilliant series of late-'80s records (here providing a more balanced sound between guitar effects and direct punch than appeared on What), the Chameleons delivered an album that should have been the step to a more.

Birdy' Burgess and company give us their blood, sweat and full throttle tears on Strange Times. Tracks Mad Jack, Soul In Isolation and Swamp Thing is mind-blowing. Landing a legendary debut and sounding far more inventive and refined than The Sound who I still can't hear why people think they sound so good. Bollocks! Chameleons UK rocks. In Library (6).
