Format: Audio CD
This is by far the most underrated Billy Idol album out there. Probably only due to the fact that the sound was a bit 'different' at the time of the release. Sure, father of punk was trying to bring music to the next level by making this futuristic sounding record. Would've been easier to release today (if a bit of remixing / remastering was applied). This album was just ahead of its time sound wise, and that is the reason why it failed. And just like Idol said himself in an interview when commenting this: "They just won't let you make an alternative album". I agree with that; this was too alternative at the time. It probably still is, for most people.
However, if you manage to look beyond the sound barrier and consider the songs themselves you might as well discover that you will get carried away by some of the catchy pop / dance / rock / alternative hooks on this album. Some of the songs are really good, and that is the most essential thing.
Although I enjoy the coolness of the sound and find it refreshing, I don't expect everyone to do so. But please, at least, consider the songs. Turn up da volume, get a gin and tonic and rock da house!!! See you all in cyberspace. :)

When in 1993 Billy Idol released his "Cyberpunk" album, it was met with, at best, mixed reviews. A real shame; perhaps it was simply ahead of its time. Not being an Idol fan when I first heard it, but being very interested in the cyberpunk phenomenon and SF in general, it quickly grew on me. "Cyberpunk" is an organic album, ranging from energetic rock to softer, more contemplative songs, effortlessly immersing the listener in an all too plausible near future ruled by mega-corporations and the struggle for survival in the industrial wastelands.
Maybe it is time for audiences and critics alike to rediscover Cyberpunk; maybe this time they'll be ready for it.

Okay, maybe it's because Billy Idol has always been taken rather tongue in cheek by most people, maybe it's because it was released just as Cyberpunk was becoming unpopular, perhaps it's because Idol tried something different from his usual crop.
Whatever the reasons, Cyberpunk is a concept album that works, and they're aren't many that do, from start to finish you are hurtled into a variety of music styles, all capturing the essence of the Cyberpunk style. From rock to eletronic, the album has a little of everything.
It isn't perfect, Cher pops up for a song (which is never pleasent), but it's well produced, well written and pretty consistent.
Give it a go, you could do a lot worse.

I shot out to buy this album as soon as i knew it was out, his first single "So Confused" with 2Play was an awesome song, and a big hit.
All his other singles that followed were also great, and the album matched that, its a brilliant album that'll keep you hitting the repeat button for a long time.
Great songs include No I (which wore out my repeat button!), Cmon, No no, Bad bad bad,Angel eyes, Teri baaton amongst many others; the last two which use the sample "Murder she wrote" by chakademus
If you enjoyed his previous singles, you'll love the album.
His fusion of east meets west is smooth and clever.
If you want any negatives, one of the weaker songs is possibly winter in my mind, and the version of So confused is not the radio edit, which at first is annoying, but you get used to it!
Great album, by a guy whos a great inspiration to young talented asians everywhere, go buy and support!

Apart from the inconsistencies, this album has some of the best songs ever written in the history of music. Wasteland. Adam in Chains (if you're in the mood), Power Junkie, Heroin (cover - best cover ever written), Venus, Then The Night Comes. Finished with Mother Dawn - absolutely amazing. The rest of the album is rubbish.

Two Words-Great Voice! Raghav's album "StoryTeller" contains a mix of tracks that will appeal to anyone, whether you like R&B, Hip Hop, Jazz or just Bollywood music. This guy is pure genious with his amazingly diverse voice, very ably singing in English and in Hindi. Integrating two diverse and very different language can go horribly wrong; but Raghav succeeds tremendously. My favourite tracks (apart from the released singles-which are brill!) are No I, No No, Bad Bad Bad, Aint Nobody and the brilliant Hindi track Teri Baaton (your words). Definitely an album worth buying, if only for this man's amazing voice x

Ignore the first reviewer who awarded this album only 2 stars, if you're looking for actual fatboy originals a quick glance to the back would tell you this is a remix album. But what a remix album it is! I have listened to this CD so many times, but never got bored of the songs on it. The collection ranges from chilled-out hip hop (ATCQ) to funk (James Brown) to reggae (Beats International), so there's something here for every dance music fan.

It really is an under-rated album. To start with, this is NOT Billy Idol as you may know him, and yet it is. If y'ask me, it's a beautiful mix of rock ("Shock to the system", "Then the night comes"), dance/techno (the 'cover' of The Velvets' "Heroin", "Neuromancer"), soul ("Mother Dawn"), trance ("Adam In Chains") and experimenting with sound ("Venus"). The segues (bits between the songs) keep things interesting, and keep the concept(-album) together. I'm not much of a Billy Idol-fan, but whenever I *do* put it on, I listen to it from start to finish. And that is its strength.
