John Foxx, the man behind Ultravox's first three post-punk albums and his electro solo masterpiece Metamatic (described as 'visionary' by the Klaxons), releases two new albums Impossible and A New Kind Of Man. This follows 2009's critically acclaimed Mirrorball (with Robin Guthrie), which was described as a 'breathtakingly beautiful' in the NME and by Q as featuring the 'best of both their recent works: Foxx's epic, sepulchral grandstanding and Guthrie's intricate, filmic soundscaping.' A New Kind Of Man was recorded on Foxx's 2007 Metamatic Tour and includes live versions of all the tracks off the pioneering electronic album, plus B-sides and rarities. As Uncut comments, 'This is the Klaxons' all-time favourite album apparently but its influence moves immeasurably beyond that', while The Sunday Times recognizes that Metamatic is 'a hugely influential album and still an eerie experience to hear it all these years later.' Mojo raved about its minimalist approach, concluding that it's cold electronics and stark vocals make it 'one of the most under-emoted records in pop history.'
