4.0 out of 5 stars Odd, but good 14 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars You either get it or you don't 11 April 2006
By sonik57
Format:Audio CD
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".

5.0 out of 5 stars Bauhaus meets Japan 8 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply a masterpiece ! 10 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD
(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 !

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired 8 July 2007
By Carter
Format:Audio CD
I find it incredible that somebody gave this 1 star. With stand out tracks like His Box, Dalis Car, Judgement is the Mirror and Cornwall Stone this is without doubt one of the most clever and intelligent cult albums of the 80's. Now it sounds better than ever. Shame on you grimephillips!
