Always include both your first and last name when placing an order. Otherwise, the order will not be processed.

Notice regarding shipping and transit times:

Due to the current global situation, transit times for domestic and international packages has increased. Foreign packages that normally take 1-3 weeks have taken as much as three months (or more) to arrive. While some packages are still arriving fairly quickly, I ask that anyone placing an order to please be patient. Transit times of other packages that may have arrived sooner have no bearing on how fast or slow the next package will be received. Tracking numbers do not always update once a package leaves the USA. I have no control over this or insight as to when your package may arrive. If this is a problem, please do not place an order.​

The cost of international shipping is the same for 1 or 2 CD's and then 3 to 8 CD's. At this time, I am only providing international shipping for select countries as there have been some territories in which deliveries are restricted or continue to be very problematic. Thank you.

Danielle Dax / Dark Adapted Eye CD

In stock
Product Details

Mixing a Gothic vibe with experimental sounds and a remarkably versatile voice, Danielle Dax left a lasting mark on Classic Alternative music. Her expression was highly visual as well, as depicted on her record sleeves, music videos and in photographs. Musically, there were no boundaries. Her voice could waver up to beautiful highs or down to menacing lows as she strummed a guitar over a dark dance tune or plucked a banjo over a quirky country-tinged number. Her lyrics could tackle the hypocrisy of religion with the catchy dance beat of Big Hollow Man, or address a cheating partner with the bouncy toe-tapper Touch Piggy’s Eyes. She could conjure a Glam rocker on the single Cat-House, or show an Eastern influence on the experimental Sleep Has No Property. Originally released in 1988, this 30th anniversary edition of the compilation Dark Adapted Eye represents the always captivating Danielle Dax from 1985-1988. In additional to the original 12 album tracks, this newly remastered edition includes additional B sides and remixes, some making their debut CD appearance.
