It was released on 4 March 1983 through Telegraph and Virgin Records. The title and cover art (designed by Peter Saville) allude to a painting by Vorticist artist Edward Wadsworth based on dazzle camouflage, titled Dazzle-ships in Drydock at Liverpool.
Although OMD had now switched to parent company Virgin following the collapse of the DinDisc subsidary, there was a feeling that OMD would benefit from appearing to maintain an independent position. This led to Dazzle Ships (and the subsequent singles) being issued on a made-up subsidiary label called Telegraph. I also love the avantgarde experiments on here. Time Zones is a great experiment, layering different talking clocks from around the world is a great, yet very unobvious idea. However, I think this album did kill OMD, who probably paid too much attention to it's commercial success. Crush and Junk Culture are terrible compared to Architecture & Morality and perhaps even Dazzleships. Or, it may be the new digital technology taking over the studio.
McCluskey, Humphreys, and company couldn't take many listeners with them, though, and it's little surprise why - a couple of moments aside, Dazzle Ships is pop of the most fragmented kind, a concept album released in an era that had nothing to do with such conceits. On its own merits, though, it is dazzling indeed, a Kid A of its time that never received a comparative level of contemporary attention and appreciation
Dazzle Ships is the fourth album by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), released in 1983. The title and cover art (designed by Peter Saville) alluded to a painting by Vorticist artist Edward Wadsworth based on dazzle camouflage. Dazzle Ships was the follow-up release to the band's hugely successful Architecture & Morality. OMD, then at their peak of popularity, opted for a major departure in sound on the record, shunning any commercial obligation to record "Architecture & Morality number two". The album is noted for its highly experimental content, particularly musique concrète sound collages, utilising shortwave radio recordings to explore Cold War and Eastern Bloc themes
OMD’s fourth album, Dazzle Ships, was perhaps a little too aptly named. Its title derived from the d warship camouflage intended to confuse enemy submarines during the 20th Century’s two World Wars, but its contents just as quickly confounded the public. While the album briefly peaked at N. in the UK Top 40, Dazzle Ships was panned by the press and deemed a commercial failure. Of course, hindsight is a wonderful thing, and it should also be remembered that when they approached Dazzle Ships, OMD’s Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys were buoyed with confidence as their much-acclaimed third album, 1981’s Architecture & Morality, had gone platinum on the back of sublime electro-pop hits such as ‘Joan Of Arc (Maid Of Orleans)’ and the lush
OMD's fourth album followed a reasonably successful self-titled debut in 1980, then the escalating successes of the same year's Organisation, and Architecture & Morality in '81, with hit singles by then including & Frame/White Light', & & Gay', (still one of the all-time greats), & and & Of Arc', but now the lads felt it was time for some ) A couple of the more balladic tracks, such as the dreamy & Of The Telescope', bear vestiges of the late New Romantic era, but ultimately the ballads, the pop numbers, the darker moments, the Eastern Bloc radio programs and the assorted bleeps & mechanical voices all seamlessly combine in one of popular music's finest offerings.
