Format: Audio CD
Tim Simenon crashes headlong into William Burrough's Naked Lunch world with Bug Powder Dust, the outstanding single from the album. The rest of the album follows suit. With the accompanying single Darkheart being one of the 100 most evil things of the 20th Century. Will Self covers himself in glory narrating the seminal 5mm Barrels. "bloody flyovers" indeed. Each track leaves its own mark on you and you will feel by the end of the album that you need to wash, take more excercise and possibly move to the country. (Quick antidote is to put on a St. Etienne CD instead).
Whilst all the other are good eery painful tracks, and Empire & one-to-one religion (Peppers & Rogers?) stand out, you will keep coming back to the fact that Bug Powder Dust is one of the best songs ever penned, despite is silly boxpop references, despite its unashamed naked lunch spoilers, it just ROCKS. So now that you can't buy the BPD singles box set, you'd better get Clear.

Initially bought to fill out my Bass collection ( bought this once before, couldn't get my head around the fact that this wasn't the Bomb the Bass of "Megablast," more fool me, and chucked it like a spa, ) this is now a firm fave.

Blasts out of the gate with the excellent, dark, and full-on "Bug Powder Dust," a song that manages to reference hip-hop, trip-hop, William Burroughs ( a theme throughout the album it seems, ) Joseph Conrad, and vibrators. The album then swirls through a number of equally dark - thematically speaking - tracks that wind around guest players like tense snakes.

Stand outs are the stripped down, coldly dubby "Dark Heart" and the hugely weird "If you reach the border," a Burroughs-esque trip of filtered poetry and dry, crispy instrumentation.

The only let down is Sinead O'Connor's hammer-home politics on the dreadful "Empire." Vampire indeed O'Connor.

If you've bought this album after hearing a sample of 'Bug Powder Dust' off the Dirt Chamber Sessions, as I did, then prepared to be suprised.
Rather than being a collection of raw, bass-heavy big-beat style tunes, 'Clear' is a somewhat weird collection of spaced-out dubby tracks featuring random people such as the rastsa poet Benjamin Zephaniah. Don't let all this put you off though as the tracks on 'Clear' are as original and well constructed as they are odd. If you are into the more obscure end of dance music then this is a must-have. Production quality is a little sub-standard and it may well take you more than one listen to get used to.
Enjoy, I do.3/5

Well what can you say. I only bought the album because I'd been looking for Bug Powder Dust for ages and had never got round to getting it. I listened to the rest of it then ignored it for a few months. Then when I had a few spare minutes I went back to it. To be honest I'm amazed. Ignore tracks 2-5 and go straight in at number 6 from then on its a rollercoaster of an album with no two tracks the same. On realising what the band were trying to do, it became obvious I'd seriously underestimated them on my first play of the CD. Well worth 5 stars if only for rhyming 'brain damage' with 'underneath the mash potata the kids hide the cabbage'.
You'll not see that anywhere else.

Bomb The Bass, blast from the past. I ordered this after listening to the title music of an old Amiga game entitled 'Xenon II'. And the sheer brilliance of their music came flooding back. Recommended if you like sampled, brilliant drum track music.
