Stegzy's Music Project

A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

Dazzle Ships – Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark [#345]

on July 1, 2015

OMD_Dazzle_Ships_LP_coverAndy McCluskey and company synth their way through their fourth album which is heavily influenced by German synthers Kraftwerk.

Dazzle Ships features a great deal of experimental ideas and was clearly an influence on many later experimental and avant-garde bands such as Godspeed! You Black Emperor and possibly even British Sea Power.

I listened to this album in its entirety for the first time recently, purely for the purpose of the music project.  I was surprised by how, when listened to in one sitting, it is almost conceptual in style. I think it was for this reason alone that the album remains undeleted.
