These Here Are Crazy Times is the second studio album by Australian rock group Boom Crash Opera, released in October 1989. The album was the breakthrough album to the lucrative U. Market for the band & was released in the United States by Giant records. This release had 2 new reworked versions of the songs Talk About It and The Best Thing. Both songs were re-recorded with producer Jimmy Iovine of U2 fame, after Bono from U2 became a fan of the band during the U2 Love Town tour of Australia in 1989. Boom Crash Opera are an Australian pop rock band formed in early 1985. Their top 20 albums are Boom Crash Opera, These Here Are Crazy Times, and Fabulous Beast. Their top 20 singles are Great Wall, Hands up in the Air both 1986, Onion Skin 1989 and Gimme 1994. In November 1997 Boom Crash Opera released a studio album, Gizmo Mantra, which was produced by Daniel Denholm, Kalju Tonuma and the group. Pulling back from the electronic sounding previous album, Gizmo Mantra was a return to the melodic rock sounds of earlier work. It included the singles, All and Dreaming up a Fire the latter had been. Boom Crash Opera's most successful album, These Here Are Crazy Times was an album of slick, commercial pop. As in previous outings, lead singer Dale Ryder's effortless although somewhat limited vocal delivery and Richard Pleasance's skillful guitar work helped disguise the fact that underneath the catchy melodies and slick production, there wasn't a lot of substance to Boom Crash Opera's music. This album made Boom Crash Opera stars for a brief period, at least, and while it contained a number of good songs, its lasting impact on the Australian music scene was negligible. Boom Crash Opera is the first album by Australian rock band Boom Crash Opera, released in 1987. Singles released from the album include two which reached the top 20 on the Australian Kent Music Report Singles Chart, Great Wall and Hands Up in the Air. In 1986 Boom Crash Opera signed with Dirty Pool Management and WEA Records. The band recorded their first two singles in 1986 with English producer Steve Brown ABC, The Cult and Wham at Platinum Studios in Melbourne. Their debut single, Great. There is a reason why songs from 'These Here Are Crazy Times' dominate Boom Crash Opera's greatest hits album 'The Best Things' and that is quite simple, 1989 is when they topped the charts like never before and released their best songs. Now, some of these songs do deserve to be left in the shadows. Mountain Of Strength, for instance, is a dreadful tune, and while Onion Skin may be a fun little party number live, it wears very thin on the album within just a couple of listens. The album is much better off with such whimsical gimmickry skipped. Listen album. Boom Crash Opera. Songs in album Boom Crash Opera - These Here Are Crazy Times 1989. Boom Crash Opera - Onion Skin.

That being said, 'These Here Are Crazy Times' is every bit as good as pop on the American charts at the time. For starters, this is a band that has an amazing front man, Dale Ryder
