To Steve Gdula

"QUOTE: Songs like "When I Die You Die" have a sweeping grandeur to them, nonetheless, and earlier works like "Bombers" have an aggressive punk edge. "Stormtrooper in Drag," took Numan's techno-glam phase about as far as it could go, but hey, at least you could dance to it. --Steve Gdula


Steve, the song is called "I Die:You Die..for one, and "Stormtrooper in Drag" is technically not a Numan song but written by his late-friend and bass player Paul Gardiner.. and secondly, Numan is having the biggest resurgence of his entire career right now and no one is paying any attention. Listen to PURE and you'll see what i'm talking about...Finally, latter day synth-whizzes owe EVERYTHING to Numan. He's the godfather of Electronic and Techno music... all fruit SHOULD be laid at the base of his Volcano.. just ask Marilyn Manson, Beck, Billy Corgan, NIN, Foo Fighters... who have all paid homage to Numan and will agree with that sentiment.

The Only One You Need

"Of course, North Americans never took to Gazza the way Brits did. But at the start, he was an edgy "talent": influenced as much by Kraftwerk as by The Drifters. And the chok-a-blok/mechanical nature of this synthpop still causes smiles whenever I play it 'round the house. The best cut here is "Are 'Friends' Electric?", a spacey, moody romp that captured Numan's angst/paranoid/solitary man lyrical hooey quite nicely. The rest of the cuts are winning and great, too (especially the violin riffs on "I Die: You Die"). The remixed version of "Cars" (don't fret fans the original is here, too!) is great also! All told, unless (of course) you're a totally enthralled fan, this is all the Numan you need in one fell swoop. A keeper!"
Numan Starter Kit?

"Well... I guess this serves as a pretty decent retrospective of Numan's works... although, in my opinion, a little stingy on the Tubeway Army/Telekon era material. Overall, though, not too shabby and better than most thrown-together compilations. Besides, if tracks like "Bombers" and "We are Glass" don't have you moving like a robot, then maybe you should start your Michael Bolton or Celine Dion collection today, anyway."
