Rest Proof Clockwork is the third studio album by English electronic music duo Plaid, released on 21 June 1999 by Warp. He added: "The element that puts them far, far ahead of every other beatminer out there is a growing sense of spirit that lets the machines do the singing. This album has an average beat per minute of 116 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 82/161 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page. Tracklist Rest Proof Clockwork. BPM Profile Rest Proof Clockwork. Album starts at 100BPM, ends at BPM (-100), with tempos within the -BPM range. Try refreshing the page if dots are missing). Recent albums by Plaid.

Still, there's a certain soul to this album that displays the maturing ex-breakdancers progressing even after more than ten years of recording. In fact, two of the most beautiful tracks of Plaid's long career are right here. The first is "Buddy," a yearning downtempo track with echoing effects; the second is "Dead Sea," a beatless piece of glorious synth-strings which evoke past civilization just as achingly as "The Crete That Crete Made" (from Temple of Transparent Balls, the 1993 album by Handley and Turner's former concern, the Black Dog)

The US CD version (Nothing Records ‎– INTD-90998) has a pressing error @ 2:43 on Last Remembered Thing
It still remained uncredited but the lead vocalist on hidden track "Face Me" is not Alison Goldfrapp but Mara Carlyle whose charming voice can be heard on early Plaid albums. Alison is also there as a backing singer.
My absolute favourite release by Plaid, definitely not something for everyone, as it is very quirky and unexpected, but the whole album stands out as a single experience, album artwork included. Plaid really brought something timeless here. It sounds as fresh and original almost two decades on. Unpredictable is a good word to use, originally heard this on cd back in 2000, borrowed from a friend, played it a couple of times as a background during summer nights, and it just absolutely gelled into the atmosphere. Managed to get hold of a near mint vinyl copy recently and it's one of those rare releases that still sound perfectly fresh. Very unexpected, rich, playful, covers a wholly unusual landscape and creates excellent images and a unique listening experience. It got so damn great with time. The album artowrk shows magnificently on the 12" format with the gatefold. A favourite record and I do recommend getting this on vinyl as it still sounds great and adds warmth to the electronic detail. One thing, the vinyl's lead in grooves on my copy, all four sides, have quite a lot of noise, probably caused by improper cleaning or more dust exposure of the edges through the years, as the noise gradually disappears as the first tracks start and the rest of the silences between tracks are nice and quiet.
My copy has suffix 'SP' on labels but 'PS' etched in the runout. It's not signed either.
I'd tell you to expect the unexpected when listening to this album, but that would be an incredible understatement.From the electro-bouncey hip-hop of "Shackbu" to the spine-tingly beauty of "Ralome"; the ambience of "Buddy", the shear idiotic joy that is "Dang Spot", and the masterwork of the album, "Pino Pomo", this album will always leave you wondering. "Face me"(the bonus track at the end of "Air Locked") features vocals by Allison Goldfrapp; just stunning.Hunt this down!
Agree w Dubvulture on the cover but hey this is quirky electronica so why the need for a serious cover. Superb release which is varied within the IDM styles of its day and carries that nice hyper creative vibe that Black Dog had/has. The music bubbles with percussion, hums with intricate melodies and lastly leaves the curious listener wanting more. Brilliant A+!
Plaid's best and more complex work. Full of unexpected moments. Almost perfect!

Er… I have this release and it DOES contain a tracklisting. It's on the "back" of one of the two booklet size cards included.
I don't have this version, but the a WARP one and I don't have the cards.So, I guess the machine which takes those cards maybe "forgets" them sometimes. I only have the Front cover, all the other cards are not in my copy unfortunately.
The problem for me is:Mine does not have those cards.And it was a sealed release and looks official in every way.I have to check if I have this release or the UK one.
This is by far the best of Plaid's releases to date. The album as a whole covers so many different genres of electronic music and hits them so perfectly that it is hard to know where it all went wrong with future releases. Anyway, if you have not already heard this album, then where have you been? Go get yourself a copy!
Plaid come up with another winner on REST PROOF CLOCKWORK. "Shackbu" continues in their weird, funky electro vein, while "Ralome," with its steel guitars, has a country-western feel. "Little People," on the other hand, starts off with some old skool hip-hop before establishing itself firmly in the new skool. “Dead Sea,” a string-based track, has a semi-classical elegance to it, while “Gel Lab” changes so many times that it almost seems schizophrenic. "Buddy," however, seems a little more aimless than their other tracks. But the quasi-Spanish guitar of “Pino Pomo” gives way to pure electronic groove. “New Bass Hippo” is bouncier than its title would lead you to think, and “Air Locked” takes its simple premise into unexpected places. Though I personally prefer NOT FOR THREES, the haunting, hidden track after “Air Locked” is as good -- if not better -- as almost anything else they’ve done.
This is a masterpiece. Amazing. As a huge Black Dog fan, I became a fan of these guys, too. But the brilliance of this album is that there is no trade-off of listenability and emotion, of originality and familiarity. This sophistication of this release makes most other "IDM" releases seem jejune in comparison. The break down at the end of "Gel Lab" is a revelatory vista; "Shackblu", a perfect album-opener, is laid-back and funky yet satisfies the hunger for prettiness and warm strings. Ralome is gentle and wistful, with a forward yet calm finesse that is life-affirming. But, caveat: no license for snobbery here- "Dang Spots" is music to jump around to! And "Little People" with its scratches and breaks wills your head into bobbing to its big lovely melodies. Ed and Andy do it again...Top Ten album to take it with you, if you could...
Ohhh...This this such a cool album!!I actually owned the other three studio albums (Not For Threes, Double Figure and Spokes) before this one, so I wondered if it would live up to my expectations.It exceeded them!!The style of tracks here is so diverse. From the most beautiful piece of music I think I've heard, i.e, 'Ralome', to the busy fusion of styles of 'pino pomo' and the giggle-fest that is 'dang spot'.I find myself more and more enthralled by Plaid's music. This album; 'Rest Proof Clockwork' is a MUST BUY.Enjoy :0)
Fantastic album, an absolute must-have for anyone into electronic music. Not Plaid's best album; Double Figure is better overall, with a little more consistency in the track quality. However, Rest Proof Clockwork contains what is, in my opinion, the best track Plaid have produced so far, and one of the finest pieces of electronic music ever: ralome (track 2). After 5 years of listening, it hasn't tired and still sends shivers down my spine. Miss this album at your peril!
Plaid's most perfect album - beautifully recorded, wonderfully rich melodies and harmonically rich musical structures throughout, inventive and, like all good music, reveals that little bit extra every time you listen to it.
absolutely the best plaid album to date,every time i play rest proof their creativity amazes me,every track is completely different,every track lives in its own world,and yet they form a very coherent whole.their latest double figure is very weak compared to this one,its just very linear and one-dimensional,that one dimension is great,but theres nothing more,and im not satisfied with only great commercial-melodic-listenable album from ed & andy... hopefully things will get better with the new one,cuz their p-brane ep is fantastic...a little harsher sound,heavier beats....and.....a change:)
