"I first saw Wire Train on a late night show called 'Thick of the Night' back in 1984. They performed 'Chamber of Hellos' from their first album. As I sat and watched them, I said to myself, these guys are really talented. The next day I went to a local music store and found the album entitled, In a Chamber... I immediately fell in love with this album and the refreshing, progressive sound that it brought to the mid- 80's music scene. My college roommate saw them in Reno in '85 and reported they were the best group he had ever seen, and believe me, he had an impressive concert resume'. To all of you that like the sound of groups such as; The Plimsouls or Echo and the Bunnymen, check out any album from Wire Train. These guys laid down a good sound, that unfortunately, ended way too soon"

"Wire Train was, along with The Del-Lords, the best American rock'n'roll band of the eighties. So why did Columbia leave off their best song ( "Love Against Me" ), and include a completely different and vastly inferior reworking of their second best song ( "The Last Perfect Thing" )? What were they thinking? Stick to "In A Chamber/Between Two Worlds."
Just like I remember

"Wow. Considering the band never really got the fame it deserved nationally, they are clearly an influence that rocked the rockers we know now.I discovered them on tour here in Ohio back in the 80's and was instantly invigorated by them. I was the prime preacher of "trainess" in my state. I was even in the fan club!Although they are no longer together, they work still in music, including much work for and with Cheryl crow (and I thought she "sounded" awfully familiar!)I wish they would reup and relase some new stuff. This album only makes me pine for new material.They missed the big time by a hair and that's a shame but don't miss out on them, it's too late to join in on the magic they had, but not to tune in what you missed the first time around.Their stuff is mastery, and you'll love it."
