5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Numan Album! 21 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD
I've followed Numan since "Are 'Friends' Electric?" in 1979, when I was 15 and I still love his early work and his latest material. Telekon is a classic Numan album, I remember first buying in in 1980 on vinyl LP, complete with free poster and 7" single of 'Remember I was Vapour' b/w 'On Broadway' (live), how excited was I to put it on the turntable, however, I remember one track jumped so I took it back to WH Smiths and got it exchanged for a new copy the following week. With the advent of CD in the mid-80's, I eventually replaced all my Numan albums with the CD version, Telekon being no exception.
What a superb album it is, too! From the first soaring bars of the unlikely single 'This Wreckage', to the melodic and touching 'Please Push No More', then the dancey 'Remind Me To Smile', it's a timeless collection of songs that still sound fresh and modern today.
Gary's come a long way from this with his re-invented dark industrial sound, which I also find brilliant but somehow, I tend to think his better work was in the late 70's/early 80's. Perhaps I'm still living in the past and reminiscing all the good memories of my youth. Telekon was one of the soundtracks to that youth, so yes, I have fond feelings for this album.
If you're new to Numan or an old fan like me, once you're hooked you won't be able to take this off the CD player for quite some time.

4.0 out of 5 stars farewell 9 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This, to me, was the album where Gary ended his affair with the dark futuristic world he started to create with Tubeway Army and built on with Pleasure Principle.
Please Push no more says it all "now it's all over for sure, I'll walk back home, we must all come down".
There are some classic tracks on this cd, Remind me to smile is one of the poppiest sounds on the cd and also one of the best. It would seem that many people used this album in future works. Robert Plant did I dream of wires brilliantly and it sounds like JM Jarre built an entire song (London Kid) around a few bars of Remember I was vapour.
Joy circuit was pure joy to listen to again, was there an instrument this guy couldn't make sound as if he had created it?
On this cd there is an instrumental Photograph, very haunting and very reminiscent of the Hazel O'Connor style on 8th day.
Gary seemed to create an era of music not just be part of it with his albums and his style. Telekon to me was his farewell to the age of the future he crafted so brilliantly, listen to the lyrics and ask yourself is this about the future or about the man.
Later singles / albums were good but they nver seemed to match the moods, sounds he captured with Tubeway army, Replicas, Pleasure Principle and Telekon.
Music for Chameleons, Love needs no disguise and White boys and heroes were probably his best later songs.
However he was still good and I am proud to have been a fan, and so glad that I had the chance to listen to his music in my youth and that the 1st impressions I had back then still hold true now, Gary Numan an electronic Genius!

4.0 out of 5 stars Should have bought it ages ago... 22 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like music from this era buy it! It's all good but "We Are Glass" "This Wreckage" & "I Dream of Wires" all stand out. The extra tracks are great too - especially "I Die You Die" which cannot be played too loud...

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD PROGRESSION !!!!!!!!! 13 May 2006
By JUAN MARTIN GABASTOU VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
After the (in my opinion) unbeatable Replicas lp,and its follow up,the totally keyboard driven The Pleasure Principle, came Telekon with the welcome return of guitar (if to a lesser degree) to Gary's music. More downtoned but darker and better produced,this album was an absolute treat to my senses.This gorgeously remastered edition features two tracks not present on my american edition lp : Sleep By Windows and the free single We Are Glass,which pep up the album with their strong,driving beats,and excellent bonus tracks,some of which are incredible instrumentals and piano solos reminding (I shall burn in hell for this) Rick Wakeman in a particular minimalistic way ! The sound is now a very hi-fi affair and a far cry from that on my lp and early cd edition. The bottom end rocked my whole house ! Lyrics are a tad more personal than the usual b-movie sci-fi Numan had us used to,and the addition of the hugely talent Chris Payne on keyboards and viola make up for the best arrangements ever played on a Numan record.This an absolute landmark in Garys career and an album a lot of us will never forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Numan Goes 'Widescreen' 5 Feb 2012
By Pink
Format:Audio CD
A year after the awesome 'Pleasure Principle' came this album, considered by most to be the pinnacle of Gary Numan's achievements. And whilst the songwriting was as quirky and original as ever, the sound was radically different.

For starters, the guitars were back (albeit in a relatively low-key fashion) but crucially, Telekon saw Numan beginning to experiment with a broader palette of instrumentation and percussion. The result is a set of classic songs that teem with intricate arrangements and new sounds, and to me it feels like watching your favourite film on a big widescreen TV for the first time...it's Numan alright, but bigger, more vibrant and at times almost orchestral.

This is not my personal favourite Numan album, but it is arguably the last truly important release of the early part of his career, and it is packed with fantastic material. There are some BIG numbers here; the catchy 'Remind Me To Smile' (which should have been a single), the dour 'This Wreckage (which shouldn't!), the epic 'Joy Circuit' and the towering 'I Dream of Wires' to name a few.

But there are also some real oddities on it, that are among the most interesting and eccentric material Numan has ever created. Songs like 'The Aircrash Bureau' and the title track are completely barking and a sure sign of a genius-at-work.

There are ballads too, with the haunting 'Sleep By Windows' and the especially moving 'Please Push No More' helping to give the album perfect balance.

This re-issue gives you the original album, non-album singles 'We Are Glass' and 'I Die, You Die' (I recall the agony of seeing the latter song performed on The Kenny Everett Video Show in late 1979, totally falling in love with it, then having to wait until May 1980 for it to actually be released!
