CD Reviews

A unique sound mix of early 80s electro mixed with poetry
Ashley Irons | Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom | 11/25/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

This album is hard to describe to someone who has never heard it before, however I would start with saying that it is basically early 80s electro/synth music with anne clark singing peotry like lyrics over the top. This may sound a strange mix, but listen to "homecoming" and I am sure you will agree that is works very well together. Similar in style to early 80s Depeche Mode or Front 242 musically, but with female talked vocals. Other top tracks are "Up" , "Now" and "Leaving". Worth a listen if you like 80s minimalist electro/synthpop.
Deceptive weakness
gambler7777 | REBOLEIRA, AMADORA Portugal | 09/20/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"From the first moment I set eye on the cover, I assumed that there must be some hidden drive in this album. Clark's apparent hopeless frailty and wanderlust in that picture are deceitful enough to prevent the less wary from a second glance at this piece. However, as time and her further works have shown us, these notions couldn't be less accurate - Clark pours forth a coherent, solid concept which, when properly absorbed by the listener, will cause an upwelling of emotions ranging from empathy and dark humor(Armchair Theatre) to outright tribal frenzy (Homecoming). Technically, the only inch of blame one can eventually find concerns the track order, which could deliver a more savory finale. This is a piece to listen to as a whole (or else buy the Homecoming EP) but one you can notice that was first released in vinyl and which kept the original track arrangement, losing a bit of drive on the early side-A-to-B passage. All in all, still one of my top 100."
