5.0 out of 5 stars An astonishing release from Clark
Incredible, High-Octane Hard-Tech here from Clark. Supplemented with his usual array of incredible production techniques... Moving away from the sublime 'Organica' of Boddy Riddle, this latest offering embraces the harder, more synthetic sounds of the IDM dancefloor...

At once, Clark dispenses with the woven textures which populate the cerebral building blocks...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a bit over-rated
A decent album, but I don't know why everyone rates this quite so highly. Clark relies heavily on familiar tricks, and here I can't help thinking of Cristian Vogel's awesome Dungeon Master album, AFX's Chosen Lords, and Jackson And His Computer Band. Great albums to be inspired by - but sometimes I feel Clark's a little too close to his source material. He is clearly...

5.0 out of 5 stars An astonishing release from Clark, 12 Feb 2008

Incredible, High-Octane Hard-Tech here from Clark. Supplemented with his usual array of incredible production techniques... Moving away from the sublime 'Organica' of Boddy Riddle, this latest offering embraces the harder, more synthetic sounds of the IDM dancefloor...

At once, Clark dispenses with the woven textures which populate the cerebral building blocks of previous outings and it's simply straight to business... A bewilering mix of sound contortions packaged up in a huge throbbing handgrenade are thrust out at you, but the result never seems over-produced, messy or misconstrued... If clubs up and down the land had course to educate their patrons, they'd play this...

What's served up here is a thinking man's hard dance album that seamlessly translates to something much more hypnotically basic if the mood dictates...

One parting shot... Do try and use the best system possible to play this on. The dazzling complexity on show will only be further enhanced.

A stunning achievement...

5.0 out of 5 stars The future of dane music? Yes please., 6 Feb 2008
This review is from: Turning Dragon (Audio CD)
First things first this album is totally different from his previous work which is always good as I'm a fan of artist progression. Man is this album pounding though! Dark intelligent dance music which will keep you guessing with soring melodic chims mixed with erratic stabs layed on an industrial beat, awesome. The only problem i have is that you can see his influences a little to clearly, but if your a fan of aphex twin well, not complaints.

Great album. I wasn't sure whether I was going to like this- Body Riddle always seemed too busy for my liking- but this is brilliant. Solid tecno beats with plenty of melody and detailed, disjointed sampling- sounds somewhere between Speedy J and Jackson and His Computer Band.

Great albums to be inspired by - but sometimes I feel Clark's a little too close to his source material. He is clearly talented, and some of this album sounds bloody good, but for me, this is a largely derivative album that is an amalgam of influences. Clark is clearly adept at recycling other peoples' pioneering work, but this album's not unique enough to warrant "classic" status. You'll probably enjoy it, but you won't come away with a sense of wonderment that you get when you've discovered something truly remarkable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality, 30 April 2008
This review is from: Turning Dragon (Audio CD)
Delving back into electronica has been a huge adventure for me, this so far is the pinnacle of the albums I've discovered. I read a few favourable reviews of this record, and bought it on a whim. It's an indescribabley good piece of music, just when it gets into a rhythm, a random glitch or change in pace throws it off. That said it's pretty relentless and noisy, but its totally euphoric. Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Changed techno music for me, 30 Aug 2014
This review is from: Turning Dragon (Audio CD)
Possibly my favorite album of all time.
Heavy, claustrophobic, dark and attention grabbing. The stand out tracks for me are Volcan Veins, Gaskarth/Cyrk Dedication, Hot May Slides, Beg and Penultimate Persian, also the Japanese bonus track Pending Dusk Wrench.
First listened to this 5 years ago and still listen to it today, if you haven't heard it you need to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turning Dragon, 16 Feb 2008

This review is from: Turning Dragon (Audio CD)
Turning-dragon position is one of the nine therapeutic sex techniques listed in 'Positions of Dark Girl.' In this sex technique while love making, the woman lies on her back and the man lies upon her, with his knees resting on the bed. She raises up her Jade Gate and inserts his Jade Stalk into her mysterious cavern, while he caresses the upper part of her body. He then begins to move slowly interspersing two deeply penetrating love strokes between every eight shallow ones.
