Music is such a personal choice and I'm no critic. Not surprisingly, I love some of the tracks on here and can take or leave the others. There are too many versions of 'Are Friends Electric' for me. I like the interpretations of of 'Stormtrooper in Drag' and 'Down in the Park'.
If you can find it for around a fiver its worth it.

There are 2 'Random' CD' s on here! One is Numan covers and the other is nothing to do with Numan & is 'techno' stuff.
Check it out - search 'Random' and see

I'm my opinion Gary Numan wrote half a dozen amazing tracks along with several albums of self-indulgent dross. I had never bought any of his albums but had always been a fan of tracks like, 'we are glass' 'are friends electric?' and of course 'cars' (Maybe half a dozen was being a bit generous!). Seeing this CD which included some of my long time favourites such as Republica, Moloko, Jesus Jones, EMF, PWEI, Damon Albarn, Dubstar, the Orb and Saint Etienne I bought it straight away and was not disappointed. There are a few dud tracks but some good surprises too from bands I had never heard of such as Posh and An Pierle and Chris Holmes.
After a few weeks of listening to this CD I went out and bought a few Numan compilations and was very disappointed with the originals.
Basically, the strength of this CD lies in how these bands have taken these songs and made them their own.
Saint Etienne have added a melody line which prevents it from become a dirge like the original and transforms it into a high powered 'disco' opener.
Dubstar turn one of Numan's more stripped back numbers into a dreamy track which wouldn't sound out of place on a Dubstar album.
The three diferent versions of 'Are friends electric' each offer something new and are each worthy of mention, including Republica's which features Mr Numan on backing vocals.
Posh, who were unknown to me, take Numans awful attempt at Jazz Funk, 'She's got Claws' and replace the Brass with Keyboard sounds that the Tubeway Army would have been very proud of, that coupled with Siouxsie Sioux type vocals, is a very good combination.
Keneckie's pop-punk rendition of 'I'm an Agent' is a gem along with EMF's 'We are Glass'.

In what is likely to be the only Gary Numan tribute here's a double CD with an unusual sort of case in that it falls apart in very little time.
Its also unlikely to be the kind which well end up in C Exchange or Cash Convertors.
The only Numan songs I heard were what were on Top of the Pops where at first he was the Tubeway Army.
The 20 years worth of chart singles he had seems out of all proportion to an artist who is no more than a Cult in the States and who has churned out nearly a dozen albums
Among his own covers were a pretty odd version of the Drifters' On Broadway which seems rather pointless and a version of Erik Satie's Gymnopadies which is an instrumental.
The music press always saw Numan as a figure of fun especially after his mishaps with airplanes but in a business not noted for normality Gary Numan is pretty straight
