Home Field Advantage is the debut studio album by American hip hop group The High & Mighty. It was released on August 24, 1999 via Rawkus Records and was produced mostly by DJ Mighty Mi, but also featured production from Alchemist and Reef. It features guest appearances from Bobbito García, Cage, Defari, Eminem, Evidence, Kool Keith, Mad Skillz, Mos Def, Pharoahe Monch, Thirstin Howl III, What? What? and Wordsworth.
Advantage is a challenging album. Takeing the listener to many places in an almost dream like rythems. This album got Clock DVA into the alternative 'mainstream'. Interesting songs with jazzy influences. Sounds like Adi Newton is an adept of film noir. Very popular in underground Australia and the Netherlands. Can't believe this album wasn't a superhit at the time. it was, in the alternative scene from people who took the effort to get into non-mainstream music. Catchy tunes, and appealing dark songs.
The only album released by Clock DVA's second lineup, Advantage is near the band's best. The atmosphere is bleak and noir-ish (including a cover of the Velvet Underground's "The Black Angel's Death Song"), quite similar to early Clock DVA material.
