Most recent release, Earth Loop (1996)
Well if you've been jonesing for more Rose Chronicles, this group's music ought to carry you for a while. Actually, I shouldn't say that, since Chimera does have a sound of their own, but I think fans of the one band will like the other. Plus Chimera's singer (Eileen Henry) does sound quite a bit Kristy Thirsk. Her voice contrasts well with the fuzzy distorted guitar used in most of the songs. (email@example.com)

It took me a while to stop hearing echoes of the Rose Chronicles in this CD, but Chimera have emerged as their own selves in my mind. After a disappointing second album from Rose Chronicles, I ended up listening to Earth Loop quite a bit. The songs range from noisy and fuzz-filled to dance music to swirly and ethereal, with Eileen Henry's pretty vocals providing the connecting thread. Overall a very collection of ecto-guitar rock.
