4.0 out of 5 stars Simply Great Music 21 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
Many people believe Gary numan's career began and ended with "Cars". If you base your opinion on the fickle top 40 charts - this is true; but Gary Numan has been putting out music non-stop to a rabid cult following since 1978. I am a proud member of this cult. His 1985 release, "The Fury" tends to be a "mixed bag" amongst his loyal legion of fans. Many claim it's too "pop" and lightweight, while others, like myself, think it's one of his better albums. Numan keeps his dark writing style in tact with signature tunes such as "Call Out The Dogs," "1. Call Out The Dogs," "Your Fascination," and "God Only Knows." A word of warning - this album is very keyboard heavy. If you're looking for something similar to his recent efforts ("Sacrifice" or "Exile"), this wouldn't be a good place to look. I like this album for its dark lyrics, dark theme, and Blade Runner association.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still very classy 24 Mar 2009
By Jo day
Format:Audio CD
Call out the dogs, pleasure skin, god only knows, and especially : Puppets are great songs. The one saying that this lacks imagination should use his own to enter this album. Puppets got the greatest melody/soundscape-line in wave I've ever heard. This is at the same time pop, dark, icy, futuristic, minimal... music with a very strong beat in it. Cinematic, visual and gritty.

3.0 out of 5 stars Certainly worth a listen... 25 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
I love Gary Numan, but this has never been one of my favourites - though it certainly does have some good moments.
I originally bought this back in the summer of 1985 (on vinyl), & I've always thought the cover photo (a laid-back looking Gary in a lounge suit, with glass of wine, & less make-up than usual) rather betrays the sounds within - it's very much business as usual (& certainly not a laid-back new direction), & carries on really where Berseker left off.

On the whole these are keyboard-driven songs, some with funky bass (& augmented with female vocals, as per Berserker) and some with atmospheric sax - but Gary's still rather doomy lyrics - he sounds (justifiably) hurt & angered by the apathy of the media, radio stations & the record-buying public in general towards his music.

The main problem is the cluttered 80s production, and that the album lacks a strong central focal point - there is no big hit on here. I believe 3 of the songs were low-charting hits - the best being the moody sax-laden 'I Still Remember', which closed the original album, and sounds much less dated now than 'Call Out the Dogs', for instance. Gary's formula seem to be wearing a bit thin at this point - a change was needed.
To be fair, if the contemporary catchy & surprisingly good Sharpe/Numan chart hit 'Change Your Mind' had been included here, it could have lifted this whole album up a notch.

The female backing singers become overused & irritating too, as if Gary doesn't feel he can cut it as a singer anymore without them drowning him out on every chorus.

As other reviewers have said, the extra tracks added for this release are excellent, & certainly make it worth buying this CD version.

3.0 out of 5 stars The One Where The Rot Set In 10 Feb 2012
By Pink
Format:Audio CD
Opinion is divided among fans as to when exactly the rot started to set into Gary Numan's work, but for me this was the one.

By this time Gary was composing solely for the PPG Wave sampler/sequencer and in contrast to previous album `Berserker', here its hard sound is not softened by a human rythmn section or any organic instrumentation. The result is a cold, soul-less affair that, while not necessarily repelling the listener, doesn't exactly draw you in.

It's not all bad though. Numan's peerless songwriting was still intact and there are some great songs on `The Fury', such as the poppy `Your Fascination', the clanking robotic `Creatures' and the sleazy machine-funk of `Tricks'. Add those to the beautiful ballad `I Still Remember', the chilling, claustrophobic `God Only Knows' and the stomping single `Call Out The Dogs' and you've got some excellent material, it's just that it's presented in such a dry, charmless manner.

This was also his first album to include any filler; the drab and uninspired `Pleasure Skin' and tuneless `This Disease' would not be missed if they were accidentally deleted from your I-Pod, and neither would the forgettable single 'Miracles' nor any of the B-sides from the era.

If you're a fan, you'll already own at least one copy of `The Fury'. But if you're new to Numan, `The Fury' is hardly a dreadful album but there are way, way better ones. I'd recommend you start somewhere earlier in his catalogue, or with any releases from 1994 onwards.
