Gary Numan's studio albums

Reg Utterley-Boaring "obdewlla-x"
 
Sacrifice
Sacrifice
"All his virtues and none of his vices - his first `goth' album is as good as GN ever gets"
Exile
Exile
"His first `religious' concept album - almost as good as Sacrifice (esp. the title song)"
Telekon + 6 Bonus Tracks
Telekon + 6 Bonus Tracks
"The fourth and best Beggars album - a denser ensemble sound than before, and The Joy Circuit is on it"
The Pleasure Principle + 7 Bonus Tracks
The Pleasure Principle + 7 Bonus Tracks
"The synths may sound feeble to modern ears, but all his really famous songs (Cars, ME, Films etc) are here"
Replicas
Replicas
"Again, forgive the anaemic synths and relish the songs (AFE?, Down In The Park, We Are So Fragile) in this sci-fi-dystopian concept album"
Tubeway Army
Tubeway Army
"Technically his first LP - guitar driven post-punk, and thus more durable than Pleasure Principle (my fave: Steel And You)"
Dance
Dance
"Somber, ambient-tinged, angry lyrics about ex-lovers/ex-friends (my fave: Slowcar To China)"
I, Assassin
I, Assassin
"Superior synths on this, lots of fretless bass, the bizarre The 1930s Rust - an underrated classic"
Warriors
Warriors
"Not unlike I Assassin, but the saxophones, backup girls and `airplane songs' have arrived (my fave: The TickTock Man)"
Pure
Pure
"His comeback album - too many similar-sounding `shout songs' (Rip, My Jesus et al) but not bad at all"
Berserker
Berserker
"PPG sequencer makes some cuts resemble FGTH - don't miss The Hunter, Cold Warning, She Cries and the title cut"
The Fury
The Fury
"PPG sequencer and little else, in electro-funk like Depeche Mode meets Talking Heads (my faves: This Disease, Creatures, We Need It)"
Metal Rhythm
Metal Rhythm
"Best of his Prince-influenced `funk' albums - stand outs Voix, Young Heart and New Anger (but not Devious - note the two songs share the same hook)"
The Plan + 12 Bonus Tracks
The Plan + 12 Bonus Tracks
"His real first LP - guitar driven post-punk, angry/apocalyptic lyrics, just a little too monotonous"
Strange Charm
Strange Charm
"V. inconsistent - brilliant stuff (My Breathing) + OK stuff (I Can't Stop) + dull stuff (Unknown... and the title track are another `matching pair')"
Machine And Soul
Machine And Soul
"Not as bad as some say - less self-repetition than Outland (and I like the Prince covers) - but it's not good either"
Outland
Outland
"His absolute worst album - it takes self-plagiarism to ludicrous extremes (but there's one brilliant track, Shame, so buy it anyway)"
