4.0 out of 5 stars Mix of old and new
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but no cigar
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mix of old and new, 8 April 2013
This review is from: Evidence (Audio CD)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling Evidence, 2 Nov 2013

This review is from: Evidence (Audio CD)
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evidence of a worthy CD, 31 May 2013

This review is from: Evidence (Audio CD)
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.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars New dreams for the city, 8 April 2013
This review is from: Evidence (Audio CD)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take note U/vox mk II, 27 Feb 2013
This review is from: Evidence (Audio CD)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant third album, 18 Mar 2013
This review is from: Evidence (Audio CD)
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

2.0 out of 5 stars Inadmissible, 7 April 2013

This review is from: Evidence (Audio CD)
Drawn by the 5 star reviews, and distant memories of Mr Foxx's late seventies period, when he was, with Bowie, the bridge between Krautrock and New Wave/Punk, I purchased this album without any prior evidence of its quality. Oh dear. Apart from a couple of pleasant moments, the music is just tired re-hashes of Kraftwerk and Human League mark one. Sadly, one of the worst buys of my recent Amazonian explorations, and evidence of nothing more than atrophy. Two stars for the one good track with the lead female vocal, and a nice bit of keyboard on the "My Town" track.
