Format: Audio CD
After the consecutive disappointments of `Outland' and `Machine & Soul' I sadly found myself drifiting away from Gary Numan and at the time I don't think I even purchased the `Dream Corrosion' live CD, the first Numan release I had ever ignored.

Quite by chance then, I spotted `Sacrifice' in the new releases section in Our Price (remember them?), which I hadn't even known was coming out. After some internal dialogue, the brooding cover art and promising song-titles persuaded to me buy a copy and the give the man one more try. I was almost cringing as I pressed play. But halfway through the opening track I found myself unclenching and by the end of `A Question of Faith' I was grinning from ear-to-ear; Gary Numan was back!

Written, performed, engineered and produced almost entirely on his own, the new material stripped away all the distracting rubbish and delivered a contemporary update of the unique Numan sound that had gradually disappeared from the last few releases.

In places sparse and dark, in others full and rocky, the new songs were a revelation; the spooky `Pray' and `Deadliner' set the mood for the album, with `Scar' and the mighty `Bleed' continuing in the same vein. Then there's the sparkling `Magic', the lovely balladry of `You Walk In my Soul' and `Seed of A Lie' and the up-tempo guitar-driven pair of `A Question of Faith' and `Love & Naplam', which could have been lifted straight from Tubeway Army days. And not a duff moment across the whole piece...all killer, no filler, as they say. Wonderful.

This release also gives you B-Sides 'Whisper of Truth' and the excellent 'Play Like God', plus single 'Absolution' and rocky outtake 'Metal Beat', which is all worthwhile stuff.

After the excellent but unsuccesful ?Machine And Soul ?,Numan went in a darker,industrial direction taking elements from current (for 94) music which he had inspired and influenced in the first place.This is a low-budget solo effort made entirely by himself in the studio with the only aid of guitarrist Kipper for the extra solos and TJ Davies for some backing vocals.The lyrics deal with agnosticism in a very angry way,a direction he would follow for the next two records with great success.The music has now a lot of keyboard bottom end,heavy guitar parts,the usual percussion programming and much less processed and natural vocals.Most of the album is of a dark,heavy upbeat nature with some excellent slow,opressive songs in a way only Numan can achieve but all of them have a nicely acomplished melodic line to them.

The sound,on the other hand,is still not good but a vast improvement over the original release (I have Dawn too).The midrange has been cleaned and beefed up,so the vocals are no longer distorted and muddled up as before,and the upper end is a tad better as well,only it now exhibits a marked imbalance to the left ( revealed or introduced by remastering ? ) on many of the album tracks.

The bonus tracks are comprised of singles,b-sides and demos,of lesser sound quality but high musical value.An EXCELLENT album and in my opinion a better treat than the 2 follow ups in terms of musicality rather than sheer sonic impact.

For those of you who thought that Gary Numan's output began and ended with "Are Friends Electric?" and "Cars", here, as Monty Python would put is, is something completely
different. A collection first released as "Dawn" (in tribute to J Michael Linsner's comic book series), it's back now, together with four new songs. The opening track, "Pray", hints at the
wonders to come, each track finely tuned, performed and written by Numan himself. Then we swing into the heavy, pounding, sweat-drenched delights of "Deadliner", but by then the
music has you. Of special note are "Love and Napalm" and "You Walk In My Soul", while the sublime "Magic" transports you to a world of hellish nightmares, where you're afraid to
sleep, and to wake... Masterly, transporting and simply stunning, this collection builds through the range of the dark emotions, leaving the listener breathless and wishing for more. I
listened to it three times in a row, getting something new out of it each time. If you like Nick Cave or Peter Murphy, and have never been tempted by Mr Numan, I recommend you get
this to add to your collection. It's a rivetting ride through the night. Remember to keep a light on...

Format: Audio CD
A five star album would be one of the best you have ever heard, & this ain't worth five. It's a big improvement on the not so 'excellent' Machine + Soul though. For me Deadliner is the stand out track because it is different to all the other tracks, and was the first Numan song I'd heard in many years to make me sit up & take note. Gary found his artistic feet again on this album and the rest of the disc is good too. This was the rebirth and the style he developed here has pretty much informed the rest of his output ever since.
