Gary Numan is old..(still shy).
thank you thank you thank you!
i <3 nodata!
I’ve had this for a week or so, and for the first few listen I was pretty underwhelmed to say the least. Yeah, Fallen is now, already, one of his great songs, but too many of the rest seemed like filler material.
How wrong I was and a much-needed lesson in not paying too much attention to first/early impressions. I gave it some time and now I really do love it. He’s been good-to-very good ever since ’94’s Sacrifice(after the awful period before), edging ever closer to greatness as he moved through Exile to Pure and then Jagged.
Well this stands with Pure and Jagged with ease. Even the instrumentals are holding their own with the songs.
It’s a great album and I’ve hardly stopped playing it over the past week.
However, I still think the price(£85)for the ‘super deluxe’ absolutely stinks, and the fact that that version is the only way that one can get hold of this on vinyl is very, very poor.
Gary, do you think it fair that folks wanting to buy your new album on vinyl(ME!)should have to pay £85 for the pleasure?
Limited this and pretty-print that mean bugger all to me, but I’d have happily paid £20 plus for a nice vinyl copy.
Anyway, he’s still, amazingly, putting out stuff that’s as good as his first five albums, and frankly, that’s astonishing.
Great review! Nice one, many thanks.
Thats what im talking about. Nice review mace. It’s nice to hear something
about the record in the comments section for a change. With out some toe tess
tony hipster waiting to comment on triangles. I mean if this is being shared like
some listening station a thoughtful review is what most people want and I’m sure
thats what Gary would want.
thanks all at nodata keep up the fight
This album is really growing on m as well.
i though it was good too!
meh.. more hipster bullshit
i think this record is, succinctly put, awful. save for “not the love we dream of”, this should have been shelved.
