Album Review

Recorded in intermittent moments while on relentless 2008 and 2009 tours, the Cliks' second record, Dirty King, betrays its own piecemeal nature, but does it in a good way, giving the versatile band a chance to show off its many faces. Led by the sexual-grit-and-sawdust-laced vocals of Lucas (once Lilia) Silvieri, the Toronto band deals in late-night-tryst style rock & roll in almost any of the forms that description could conjure up. Dirty King opens on its trademarked note of slinky syncopated sensuality, moving from the bluesy, Pretenders-esque "Haunted" to the fevered, Cramps-like gin-joint reverie of the title track. The Cliks can switch easily from channeling Concrete Blonde (with a touch of U2's spiraling, arching guitars) on "Not Your Boy" to mid-career Beatles on "Red and Blue" to Gwen Stefani mixing it up with the Buzzcocks on "Henry." It's all delivered through some nifty production that strikes a balanced pose between down-and-dirty unpredictability and bright and clean pop. Dirty King is a smart, sexy clarion call to be taken seriously by a rock foursome who deserve to be noted for more than their lead singer's gender-bend.

PLEASE

Amazing, long-awaited album...Itunes PLEASE put Dirty King music video on here!! YES if you agree!

Amazing!!!

My girlfriend and I have been waiting for the release of their new CD "Dirty King". The music and lyrics are great like always! THE CLIKS ROCK!!!

This Album Rocks; We Need Cliks Videos!!

First of all, if you already have the CD, Track 12 "Everything We Are" is a bonus track and you need to download it. Second, we need Cliks videos on iTunes!! Third, the iTunes reviewer is an idiot who didn't even spell Lucas's last name right: it's Silveira. Also, there are currently three members of The Cliks, not four. At least they gave it a good review. All of the songs on this album are amazing. This band rocks and Lucas's singing is just awesome. Dirty King is a 5 star album and The Cliks are a 5 star band.

Biography

Formed: Canada

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Gutsy, melodic, dramatic, and dark, Toronto's the Cliks arrived on the scene in 2007 with two strong bullet points. First, they covered Justin Timberlake's hit "Cry Me a River" in a White Stripes meets the Pretenders style, and second, leader Lucas Silveira was a transgendered FTM (female-to-male) leading an all-female, androgynous band. Initial word of mouth started in 2006 and had little to do with Silveira's gender-bending. Instead, it was their blistering live shows around Toronto that earned...
