Though Bomb the Bass' third album, Clear, was originally a scattershot, kinetic dance record, Tim Simenon restructured the record for its American release. The American version of Clear demonstrates a distinct trip-hop, techno, jazz, and dub influence, as well as the literary lyical pretentions that were present on the original English release. Simenon created a subdued, multi-layered album, where instruments float in and out of the mix over a deep, laidback groove. All of the rappers on the record are guest stars, including Sinead O'Connor and Justin Warfield. Although their contributions are impressive, the true star of the album is Simenon, who has made an album that proves he isn't stuck in the late-'80s house/techno rut and can compete with '90s artists like Tricky and Portishead. Still, the album highlight comes with a La Funk Mob reworking
Tim Simenon's Bomb the Bass pet project pumped some of the best acid house straight into late-'80s dance clubs.

Soft Bomb is an album by New Zealand group, The Chills released in 1992. It was the follow-up to 'Submarine Bells' which had hit number 1 in New Zealand in 1990. Released to good reviews, 'Soft Bomb' was followed by a world tour with an enlarged Chills line-up. Unfortunately in the midst of their US tour, financial backing and promotion was withdrawn for the album and tour. This line-up of the band disintegrated and Martin Phillipps would take some time to rebuild the band. Phillipps parted company with Slash Records after this album and tour.
