Strange Free World is the second album by British alternative rock/dream pop group Kitchens of Distinction, released on February 19, 1991 in the US by A Records and on March 18, 1991 in the UK by One Little Indian Records. It is the follow-up to their 1989 debut Love Is Hell. Noted producer Hugh Jones, who worked with Echo & the Bunnymen (on their 1981 album Heaven Up Here), among many others, helped KOD to sound more at ease in the studio.
Reviewer Ned Raggett notes that "Musically, the tunes sound quite ambitious in many ways, often steering away from conventional verse-chorus-verse formulas," and calling the album an overall excellent effort; it is often considered one of the group's best works, as well as possibly its most popular and commercially successful, charting at #45 on the UK Albums Chart. The album also includes KOD's only UK charting single "Drive That Fast," which charted at #93 on the UK Singles Chart.
All songs written and composed by Kitchens of Distinction.
