After establishing himself as a visionary director, David Lynch takes his eccentricities to the world of music with Crazy Clown Time. With an ominous electro-pop sound and a heavy dose of the surrealism that Lynch has become known for, the album is sure to bend minds while redefining the word "strange."
Spin (p.72) - "[S]oundscapes that are dark, unsettling, and often confusing. Which is to say, quite a bit like his films."
Entertainment Weekly (p.75) - "[A] typically creepy solo set full of warped guitars and carnival-barker vocals." -- Grade: B-
Alternative Press (p.121) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "His debut solo effort is as chilling and unusual as his visual work, thanks to the noir-ish soundscapes he and collaborator Dean Hurley have cooked up."
The Wire (pp.62-63) - "Lynch's self-taught guitar playing does so much to set the mood: heavy on tremolo, it is like Duane Eddy-style rock 'n' roll reduced to effects, traces and exclamations."
CMJ - "Heavy on the whammy bar, minor chords, vocal reverb and vocoder effects, CRAZY CLOWN TIME is at once spooky and angst-ridden."
