Originally released in 1992, The Chills’ third album ‘Soft Bomb’ came out on Slash/Warners.

“’Soft Bomb’ was The Chills' finest hour.” Perfect Sound Forever

Featuring contributions from giants of contemporary American music like Van Dyke Parks and ex dB's Peter Holsapple as collaborators.

A cohesive song cycle that brought together indie pop jangle, Phillipps’ clever lyrics, a “drunken piece of music hall” (AllMusic), an offbeat homage to Randy Newman, filmic string-laden scores, some grown up licks and three thematic interludes.
