Furious after purchase!,
This review is from: The Fury (Audio CD)
Even for fans of the day, this was noticeably a last-gasp of a dying pop act- the production is abysmally poor- this sounds as if it were made at 6th form and the packaging is woefully amateurish. There is no 'music' here, but the same old drum beats and synth chords that Numan ploughed out since 1980 with different lyrics. His voice at this point could not be disguised no matter how many female backing singers were used. With no money to employ session musicians of skill, Numan was finally exposed here with probably one of the worst albums of the 1980s.

"One of the worst albums of the 1980s" - get a grip man, I've never read such nonsense! This was Numan further exploring harder edged music following on from Berserker and sounds totally unlike anything he did prior to that album. The production, far from being "abysmally poor" is powerful and robust. This isn't the best of Numan, not is it the worst, and for me, The Fury is a far superior album - with far more musical talent on display - compared with his latest Jagged.
