Nice adventure into the mind of Chris Clark.
Chris Clark’s focus while making his sixth album was “hunting down that elusive paradox. To create something that didn’t sound like what I’ve done before. But was also unmistakably me.” Even without hearing the previous work of Clark, it’s clear that this music is charting new territory. Each song a unique personality and, overall, the album is warm, soothing and lively. Track 1 reminds me of a caravan full of gypsies. Number 2 is fit for an underwater adventure and almost sounds like it belongs in the background of a level on Super Mario. Until track 5, the songs are mostly electronic and bass-filled, but numbers 5, 6, and 10 enlist the vocals of Martina Topley Bird (heard in songs by Massive Attack) and give the intense, masculine beats a hint of sex appeal. Give this baby a spin, you won’t be disappointed.
