For your listening Pleasure, 3 Oct 2009
The Pleasure Principle 30 year expanded edition provides the listener with a stagering insight into the making of a truely outstanding and ground breaking album that sounds as good now as it did 30 years ago.
I can't help thinking while listening to the demo tracks that Gary Numans wildest dreams were about to be realised with the release of this album. The demo tracks have an interesting rawness to them and the sounds from those beautiful old Moogs literaly brings a tear to the eye.
The package as a whole is excellent, good sleeve notes and some interesting almost rustic photos taken in the studio eg keyboards sitting atop an old wooden tressle.
Back in 79 this album blew me away, my old vinyl copy that has seen better days is proof of this, but upon reflection 30 years on, one realises how damn clever Gary Numan was and still is.
