Dali's Car was a one-off combination of the Bauhaus lead singer with Japan's ex bass-player. Apparently, it was a marriage made in hell and they split, with Mick Karn, the bassist finishing the album off.
Buy this is you like something a little off the wall; heavily bass-playing laden tracks or Japan. Do not buy if you are not into the Japan-esque style of music or tracks that are heavy on bass.
My favourite tracks are His Box with its hypnotic bass playing and far-eastern synth overtones and the Judgment is the Mirror - quite melodic, with a warbling bass line, plaintive synths and a distant sombre oboe.
Its Bowie (voice) meets Japan (bass) with a Turkish/Far Eastern feel to it. Its weird, its funky, but it grows on you.

It's an intriguing album alright. Remaining unreleased on the shelf for over a year for unknown reasons, Murphy and Karn's collaboration was both familiar and a departure from what they'd both done before. Standout tracks for me include the single 'The Judgement Is The Mirror', 'His Box', 'Artemis' and the atmospheric 'Cornwall Stone'.
Rumour had it at the time that they chose not to work physically together, preferring to exchange ideas by leaving each other ansaphone messages, working in relays in the studio staying only long enough to proverbially hand over the creative baton. Whether this is true or not I've never been sure but it sounds about right! A sign of things to come: even though Dali's Car (the apostophe was never featured officially, punctuation fans!) were officially a duo, they worked with a drum programmer, Paul Vincent Lawford, and he does a great job here.
No, it's not Japan and neither is it Bauhaus: it's something quite unique. This was the only example of their collaboration as they never worked together again. By the way there aren't any remixes featured as I don't recall any ever being produced. There were two non-album tracks on the 'Judgement' 12".

The power of Peter Murphy's (ex Bauhaus) voice with the musical skills of Mick Karn (ex Japan). However, if you want noise levels like Bauhaus, the album is not for you. Instead, Dali's Car have taken the bass-beat Karn is well-known for, and added it to Murphy's diction and clarity. Best music on the album is the re-arranged Artemis, but the best overall track is Moonlife. A triumph of blending two disparate musical strands

(I am a french fan, so sorry for my wobbly english...)

This short but very rich album is a masterpiece of electro-dub-goth-world ! Original rhythms, subtile and odd bass, cold minimalism, strange-dark-exotic atmospheres and perfect vocals ! Brilliant !!! This is the only album of my collection that I have listened three times in quick succession, such I was impressed ! Listen to it !

Athough both of the musicians did not get on well together the resulting music has no reflection on this fact. Indeed it could be because of this that the resulting CD makes the type impression that can only draw one in. Every song has its own hi lights, mostly driven by Mike Karns unusual if not unique style of bass playing. If you have not heard any of this dramatic bass before, be careful, you may end up with a bank balance a lot worse than it was, as he has rather a large amount of music to behold. This comes with a buyer beware notice.

I have owned this album since it came out. I received it as a Christmas present that I had requested. I played it once in my parents lounge only to be told by my dad to turned that drivel off. I Was astonished as I knew immediately that it was a work of genius. Both Mick Karn and Peter Murphy are incredible writers and musicians so unsurprisingly the collaboration is stunning. Murphys eccentric vocals coupled with Karns brilliance at a huge Array of instruments works brilliantly. Sure the whole thing is off the wa all but if you love Japan or Bahaus you can't fail to love this

Dalis Car - waking Hour - (vinyl album) is self indulgent drivel. I listened to the album once then left it a while and listened to it again. and It was worse the second time. If you ever wanted to know what hell was like then listen to this album on a continuous loop. However, if you want to buy my vinyl album then it a masterpiece which every Bauhaus and Japan fan would need in order to complete their collect.
