4.0 out of 5 stars A brighter star in the Gary Numan collection 5 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was the first Gary Numan album I didn't have to defend, when playing to my friends! Sure it borrows liberally from Janet Jackson, and even Robert Palmer, but as Gary said himself "We all live in the same museum, we all rearrange the same old songs". To what effect! This album marks a departure from his previous stuff, and gives a suggestion of where he was to head subsequently. Why only four stars? Because he just keeps getting better! Do yourself a favour - buy this!

2.0 out of 5 stars Better times ahead for Mr Numan 12 Feb 2006
Format:Audio CD
This albums predecessor was the slick hard hitting electro pop funk of 1988's Metal Rhythm. Although in some ways Metal Rhythm continued to divide Numan's fans. On one side, some were still longing for the darker analogue synths of old. On the other side many reckoned it to be his best effort yet! So where to go next?
With Numan retreating into his new built home studio (which gave this album it's name: Outland) perhaps we could expect some tech-heavy things. With sequencers and samplers aplenty, in some ways this is what we got, but not quite. They are there, but they are buried under all the overdubs.
Maybe the new heavy funk direction would be turned up a bit. The Prince like diva vocals and chick a lickin' guitars are there, but without the heavyweight production budget, we don't quite get them properly either.
Maybe Numan, alone, without anyone looking over his shoulder, would indulge into some of the heart wrenching songwriting or pop suss we all know he can be capable of. But with the hits drying up and his fans divided anyway, his confidence sliding, we don't get that either. Here Numan leans far too heavily on others ideas, Prince, Cameo, Janet Jackson to name a few, to let his own personality shine through.
Even his record company weren't sure where to go. As a result the album was re-altered, re-edited and overdubbed into oblivion. The finish, sounding far too tinny and over produced.
Perhaps if any of these areas had been tackled in a whole hearted manner, although opinion would inevitably have been divided, it may have been a stronger piece.
As it stands, Outland tries so hard to please all of the people all of the time, mostly it fails in every corner.
Never mind. There were better times ahead. If you're a Numan bystander either go for the earlier stuff (Pleasure Principle etc) or the later stuff (Jagged or Pure).
Only hardcore fans may find anything of real interest here.

4.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB WHITE FUNK !!!!!!!! 24 Mar 2006
By JUAN MARTIN GABASTOU VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This album shows the growing leanings towards funk Gary Numan had adopted circa 91.Funkier than ever before,VERY Prince-influenced,this album is a hard hitting one,with excellent guitar performance and exquisite percussion programming.It has some nice ballads too.Starts out and out funk and gets more industrial towards the end.Gazza's voice is surprisingly less processed on most of this album's songs than on previous offerings,making for a nice,more natural variation.The sound is very good but the remastered version has gorgeous bonus tracks:River and Mistasax,which are 2 nice instrumentals,the excellent Shame single,and two remixes of My World Storm that are way better than the lp version.
Not an essential purchase for the average Numan fun but a treat for those of us who enjoy funk rock with the classic Numan signature.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rotten To The Core...Very Sad 13 Feb 2012
By Pink
Format:Audio CD
Whenever I listen back through Gary Numan's catalogue, this is the album that I always look forward to the least. Since its release in 1990 I have tried to like it and hoped desperately that it would grow on me, but to be honest the appeal of `Outland' still eludes me today.

After the upbeat and focussed `Metal Rythmn' I was astonished at the musical decline between that album and `Outland' and hearing it for the first time made me so sad.

It's difficult to pinpoint what makes `Outland' so weak; it could be the total lack of memorable songs; it could be the cold sequenced same-iness of every track; it could be the thin, clattery rythmn programming; it could even be the risible lyrics, repetitive nonsense about `disease' and `infection'. But whatever it is, the result of this unhappy combination is a hollow, joyless experience.

Of course, there are no highlights to speak of, but `Outland' does contain the wretched `Heart' (arguably the most justifiably ignored single of his career) and gaps between lowlights are filled by the pointless `Interval' links, which are little more than a series of `atmospheric' noises.

Numan himself always points out next album `Machine' & Soul' as his creative low-point but for me, that is here on `Outland' and it seems apt that he is on his knees on the cover. Fortunately great things were still to come, but at this point the nadir had truly been reached and there is no indication in this music of the massive creative resurgence that he would later experience.

Can't recommend this one, sorry...it will just make you sad too.
