Clear is a mature third album for English musician Tim Simenon, who began his career as a hip-hop DJ, making cut-and-paste sample records, but has since come to repute as the producer for Depeche Mode, Gavin Friday, and Meat Beat Manifesto. Favoring the same sort of producer’s back-seat position, Clear features several different vocalists, allowing Simenon to display his versatility. Overall, the entire work possesses an edgy Beat-like quality. On “Empire,” an emotive ballad that plays with the similarity between the words “empire” and “vampire” to describe England as a bloodsucking entity, Sinead O’Connor duets with the delicate vocals of newcomer Benjamin Zephaniah to beautiful effect. Reggae legend Bim Sherman offers the gentle “Sleepyhead.” But it’s Los Angeles-based wordsmith Justin Warfield that is most responsible for Clear’s sharp punch, waxing lyrical about Willy Wonka over Simenon’s drug-addled oboe soundtrack on “Brain Dead” and flipping silver-tongued lines on the single “Bug Powder Dust.” –Tamara Palmer
