This is an excellent album. It's a meeting of 2 generations of electronic artists with John Foxx collaborating not only with Benge (The Maths) but also Matthew Dear, Gazelle Twin, Xeno & Oaklander, Tara Busch and The Soft Moon. A moody and massive record that refers back to classic analogue synth records from the late 70s and 80s but also looks forward too - the modern world echoes darkly in the sounds here.

This "album" doesn't quite gel for me. Too many electronic ditties * The previous JF & TM album was in a similar vein but held together because of the stronger songs. I'm a long time John Foxx follower and this release though disappointing will not stop me from buying further output.
* anyone who creates their own electronic music will have hundreds of these 2 minute unfinished ideas

Bought this and 2 other JF&TM CDs (the last 3 releases in fact) ahead of a live concert in Glasgow's Concert Hall a few weeks ago. Glad I did, the music is very good, different and distinct from his early stuff (Metamatic). Yes - which I'm old enough to have bought on vinyl, first time round! Some of his vocals on ‘Evidence’ are ‘treated’ which takes a bit of getting used to. Overall - highly recommended. This is a well recorded production and if you have a decent hi-fi, you'll appreciate the quality and engineering.

It's been a while since buying a John Foxx album,pleased to say I wasn't disappointed .Some excellent collaborations included and to my mind the three stand out tracks were Evidence,Changelings and A Falling Star,the latter in particular is a vastly superior version in comparison to the original track.

Evidence is the latest instalment of John Foxx's music for cities - part urban; part dreamscape. In this case the lyrics are set against foreboding synths and brooding percussion. There are some beautiful contributions form Brighton's Gazelle Twin and The Soft Moon collab gives the title-track a post-punk twist. Best of all is the stark electronics are Talk which suddenly changes course halfway through as a new Matthew Dear vocal beams in from another dark city. Brilliant stuff.

Been a fan of John Foxx and his early Ultravox work during the 1970s .... This album is pure synth electronica and very transient
...Enjoyed listening to this album very much.

If you make another album......
You need a Benge type figure to drive you on, IMHO....
John, Benge and assorted Maths' are getting better with each release.
This is atmospheric and uplifting in equal measure.

I love this album - the darkest of the 3 by John Foxx & The Maths. But don't take my word for it, this release has been enjoying some wonderful reviews from the UK media:

'Foxx's creative fires still burn white hot.' 4/5 MOJO

'His best music since the glory days of Ultravox and Metamatic.' 4/5 UNCUT

'A collection of possibilities; attractive angles and alternative futures.' THE QUIETUS

'This is probably Foxx's most superior post-Ultravox album to date. Long may his creative renaissance continue.' BBC MUSIC

'Evidence is the kind of timeless electronic album you can dream inside.' 8/10 CLASSIC ROCK

'Foxx's legacy has come to be revered. Foxx's third album with The Maths provides plenty of evidence why.' THE WIRE

'Escapist, dreamlike; glowing with sprawling analogue paranoia.' 8/10 BARCODE

'Another terrific lesson in analogue synth magic.' 8/10 VICE MAGAZINE

'John Foxx & The Maths are poets of electronic music and this release remains vibrant throughout.' ARTROCKER

'Dark and unsettling.' 4/5 CLASSIC POP

'Simmering in exquisite fashion.' 4/5 RECORD COLLECTOR

'Foxx's compositions exert a compelling fascination.' 4/5 DAILY MIRROR

'This Dark Lord of Synth still wields fearsome power.' Q MAGAZINE

'An album that hangs together beautifully.' 4/5 VIVE LE ROCK

Found this album quite by accident, was a big fan of John Foxx back in the day. Bought it and loved it.

deffo one for the lover of fresh sounding music and lyrics, great melodies and vocals just like the other "john foxx and the maths albumn"

i think the maths bit adds allot to john foxx's already great sound.
