Nice early synth album,
This review is from: Replicas Expanded 2008 Tour Edition (Audio CD)
Quite an important landmark album is REPLICA'S. Despite not being the first to take synth's into the pop world.
It's stark and icy in it's sound. It's quite a jump in music direction from his punk guitar root's. I do like the idea of including the early version of the album (disc 2) with the original release album.
I was expecting a very raw sounding version of REPLICA'S. Some of the arrangement's do work well. What part's were replaced by guitar were done on synth's.
There is some interesting sleeve notes about the development of Gary Numan's evolving creativity.
