This collection is cool, but so disappointed that Pale Shelter isn't on this album. How come? It's one of their best singles.... simply mystifying.
Telekon + 6 Bonus Tracks ~ Gary Numan

5.0 out of 5 stars Numan's finest, 26 Aug 2004
Nearly 25 years after its release Telekon does sound dated, but what do you expect? Buy new music AND listen to this. Listen to some of the synths on Keane's Hopes & Dreams and you'll soon see who their influences are. Numan's attempts at creating 'songscapes' (sorry) are majestic and the texture and power of the soaring synths are unmatched. GN was disillusioned with his fame when he wrote this (e.g. Please Push No More) so don't expect it to cheer you up. However, listen to this at high vol. in a reflective moment and inspiration will slowly but surely seep into your life......
