CD Reviews

Michael J Harper | Covina, CA United States | 05/09/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 1983 Clock DVA album is very much like another reviwer described it, much like King Crimson and I would say Roxy Music, even the Police of the early eighties but with an industrial and fairly dark edge. The opening song Tortured Heroine is a brilliantly written and very mood inspireing song already setting this album up to take you elsewhere. The mix of jazz and the use of trumpet, saxaphone even piano add to Clock DVA's enigmatic lure. Clock DVA would later go on to create its better known works like "Man Amplified" and "Buried Dreams" that were easily acountable as a main influence of so many later industrial bands.Advantage is a challenging album. Takeing the listener to many places in an almost dream like rythems. ADI Newton's cathartic yet intense, near monotone vocals have a lure all their own too. If you are a fan of Clock DVA you might like to hear bands like Phallus Dei to hear Clock DVA's influence in extreme action and then resupplied with a vaster darkness."

"If you have not heard Clock Dva , this is a great c.d to start
with. A brilliant mix of rock/jazz/ blues/feedback.
Sadly after this album in 1983, the band split, but if only they
had made more !
Definitely one for anyone's collection."
In the spirit of Joy Divisions revolution

"With the first notes Adie Newton takes you on a journey to a dark, tragic and harsh, yet somehow comforting world. It is the next step Ian Curtis (Joy Division) hasn't been able to take."
