5.0 out of 5 stars 6 years? Thats a bit much isn't it? 15 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
NO. No it is not. Not if this was what he was rustling up (as well as the lil'chidder numans). Good work cocker, you've really put your foot to some backside right here! Absolutely excellent album, the worst track on it would still be probably one of my favourites of all time. I express a particular liking for the tracks "Fold", "In a Dark Place" and "Scanner", but it's too hard to pick real favourites, they're all great.
The numan sound changes so much, from the ice-clad, disconjugated synth jiggery-pokery of 25 years ago, down into the shoddy depths of funk and out into the bright, shining new world of kinda industrial, kinda metallic but very dark renaissance. This new album really has some darkness in it, but not to the point of indulgence. It's deep and brooding and then its wailing in your ear with mutant rhythms and scary cellos. I've got to say, this is better than sacrifice, exile and pure by some significant degrees of magnitude and those were spectacularly good albums. So spend your money people.

5.0 out of 5 stars nuuuuuuuuuumaaaaaaaaaaan 14 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
You mention Gary Numan to the non converted and they reply "Oh its that bloke that did cars and crashed planes innit?" Well they have not listened to his last few albums have they? Its been about five years since 'Pure' album and 'Jagged' has been well worth waiting for. Numan style has changed a huge amount over his 28 year career. The pioneer of synth music, this still features heavyly on this album which is a good thing. Every track twists and turns from soft vocals building to crushing heavy beats with catchy melodies, you just have to sing along. The album opens with 'Pressure' an atmospheric track laying out the blueprint for what is to come. 'Fold' a very old style Numan track with rising synths and traditional vocals stepping back to 'Sacrifice album'. 'In a dark place' Builds on the first two versus to a brilliant corus that will stick in your head for days. 'Haunted' Do you like Rammstein? 'Blind' Who said Numan can't sing? listen to this. This quality continues through to the final track 'Jagged' with its Manson style menace vocals and heavy Nu Metal tones. Unlike most modern albums that have three or four good tracks and the rest just filling in and some you have to eject from the player before the end. 'Jagged' hooks you and you can,t let go, you play it over and over again. Buy it, then see him live!! A masterpiece of musical engineering.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cementing an icon 22 Feb 2006
By Mr. H TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
It's a long, long time ago now, but when Gary Numan first appeared on Top Of The Pops with Tubeway Army, we actually sat around the next day at school trying to decide whether or not he was actually a robot or not! Simpler times.
Of course, he was actually an electronic and industrial pioneer, and his touch is to be seen on the recordings of every single industrial act that has followed, whether they care to admit it or not. And that is a problem, not only for Mr Numan, but for every 'legend'. Where do you go next?
There's nothing sadder than an icon trying to reinvent themselves and stay current. Which is why there's a lot to be said for artists not trying - hello Andrew Eldritch! Which may be why "Jagged" is his first studio album in over five years.
But Numan has decided to go down the relevant road by recruiting underground electronic artist DJ Ade Fenton as his co-producer. At least it's a road he (and we) recognise, so ther's no bhangra beats here. What we do get is a very, very dark album which careers between the melancholy, the aggressive and the apocalyptic.
Long time fans are going to love this, but it's not going to win over many new converts. Which is a shame, because with his trademark vocal sneer married to dark beats, some live drums and driving guitars, this is his best work in a decade.
There's even some potential for chart action here with “In A Dark Place”, especially, having enough links to the world of rawk to drag in a few Rammstein / Manson fans along the way. But he hasn't forgotten the synth fans who've stuck with throughout the forgotten years and they will be stroking their Sequential Fugues with icy pleasure when they hear “Blind”.
Lyrically, he's not a happy bunny, but then a happy Gary Numan would be a bit silly, really. However, this is an excellent album, which will cement rather than lessen his reputation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creeping killer of an album from Gary 16 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
Buy this album, sit down quietly and put your headphones on. After Gary's monolithic "Pure" of 5 years ago you might not get this one first listen. I didnt, but you know what? Its a belter.
I dont know whether Gary puts subliminal messages into his music but the more i play it, the more i want it. This was probably one of the hardest albums Gary has ever had to make.
"Pure" was never an easy one to follow as it hits you first play. "Jagged" does not... but beware listener because it'll creep under your skin and worm its way into your psyche. Listen with care this is a killer of an album.
