Great cd, 14 tracks and not one isn't great. The last 2 cd's this and "Kitchens" are some of the best work from this group.

Julians guitar work, Steve's drumming and Terry's writing are all brilliant on both efforts. Loev 'em !!

If you loved "Kitchens of Distinction" from 2009 you'll for sure love ...By Amazon Customer on 11 Dec. 2015

Format: Audio CD

 

This is the latest from Charlie, October 2015. If you loved "Kitchens of Distinction" from 2009 you'll for sure love this one for sure. 14 music tracks all very strong.

Fantastic writing from Terry Thomas, great musicianship, contemporary and very well produced.

Hasn't left my cd player in the vehicle since I purchased it and play it once a day.

If you're a fan, then this is a must. Absolutely fantastic.

Another good review found    http://metaloddities.canalblog.com/archives/2015/12/27/33125097.html

Although written in French, there is a Translate feature

 

On another note, Terry informed me that sales of Elysium is 'extremely disappointing' - so I'm guessing this drives another nail into the Charlie coffin.

Poor info from the record company and confusion as to it being the 1983 release on Amazon does not help.

A proper rock label would have done it better.

The album speaks for itself as it is one of the best Charlie albums ever.

Very disappointing news Peter, must be so disheartening to spend so much time making a record for so few people to enjoy. It really is a great album full of fantastic tunes, but no airplay will not help, and a label that does not do anything to promote it will drive the last nail home.

 

Thanks for the album Terry, love it to bits and like KOD, I never tire listening to it.

 

Great legacy.

To be fair it has only just come out for goodness sake but it needs promotion and it's not getting it.  

Why have I not seen it reviewed in mags like Classic Rock etc.  

There are hundreds of rock radio stations around the globe, who is playing it?

I checked out the labels page which claims "CHARLIE formed in 1971 and released four albums in their career up to 1986"

Yeah right!

Just ordered Elysium through Amazon and can't wait to hear it. A few years ago I went to buy and download music from Charlie on I Tunes and their not listed on that sight. If you want to increase your sales you have to at least get onto this sight, which would also list the new album. I'm not a business man or legal expert but you have to go where the action is today. There is just too much great music from this band to not be on there. There are plenty of fans from our era who are always looking to replace and buy music that was lost or worn out and looking for new material. Jim

Just received Elysium and have listened to it several times, with The Super Rich being my favorite track so far. If this is Charlie's last album, your going out the way you entered it, at the top of your craft. Totally enjoyed the liner notes and all the photo's of the band over the years, what a bumpy road that was for all of you but you all survived and created some of the best songs and rock ever. I will always remember seeing Charlie in New Haven, Ct. in 1979, which led me to look them up a few years ago and now have a good collection and the 2 new albums, Thanks again to Terry Thomas and the whole Charlie family.

Read these from Charlie fans and most agree that there is zero PR regarding this album.

"What?!?!? A new Charlie album and I haven't seen or heard anything about it.


When was this released?
