Daniel Amos – Dopplegänger – 1983

Alarma Chronicles volume 2. Vox Humana completed the trilogy, but Doppleganger was a better match and more of a completion of the punk/new wave vision of Alarma.

Between volume 1 and 2 of this trilogy they switched record labels and got a new bass player. Terry Taylor’s guidance clearly held things together though. This release is peak 80s culture. It fit the model of what was happening in music at the time, even if nothing of the sort was happening in CCM outside of DA.

This visionary album was on par with everything else in the scene at the time, but limited by being marketed to the CCM audience.
