The strangely titled What Does Anything Mean Basically is the second Chameleons album, released in 1985. What Does Anything Mean Basically shows The Chameleons moving away from the mellow Joy Division influenced sound of their debut, Script of the Bridge, becoming heavier and much more synth orientated. On What Does Anything Mean Basically The Chameleons make even more use of these effects. Basically by The Chameleons from Manchester was originally released in 1985 this digitally re-mastered CD re-issue is from 2009. If anyone thinks the 80's did not produce good music comparable to the output of the 60's and 70's this of course, couldn't be further from the truth. On their second LP album--What Does Anything Mean Basically, singer-songwriter and bassist for the band--Mark Burgess--gave us lyrics for songs that were not only conceived as poems, but were also defined by the intelligence of their words and not-so-easily discernible meaning Jim Morrison and Steve Kilbey are two writers that come to mind

Nowhere near as good as “Script...” remaster, not even close. The vocals are buried in the mix. If I wanted a digital remaster I would’ve bought the CD. Vinyl is so noisy in between songs it’s not even funny. Mine’s not clear, but a creamy opaque colour, don’t know what “clear” means to most people but it means “clear” to me. So disappointing, after SOTB I was looking forward to hearing this. Whoever OK’d this mix should not be working in sound production.

Overall a very nice reissue but definitely subject to GZ's iffy quality control. Per my exchanges with the mastering engineer, the source for this was a 24 bit version of the previous remaster released on CD in 2009. I never bought that disc, but compared to my 80s Statik CD this LP sounds like the rhythm section was EQ'd to be more prominent. That's not a bad thing IMHO. The gatefold jacket looks great, but my first copy of this had some loud pops on side 2 so I exchanged it for another copy. My second copy is better but still not 100% perfect.

Ouch! that not sound good, I can't exchange records, due I can't return it. I hate the GZ's iffy quality control.
Thabel
I'd agree with your assessment. My copy has some click-and-pop issues as well, but nothing bad enough to make me want to exchange it. Not perfect, but much better than not having it at all, as other than the minor pressing problems it sounds great.

Excited to get this, whenever the place I ordered it from in the states finally gets it in & ships it to me. This band was criminally under-rated <3
