Product description

Product Description

Gary Numan's most commercially successful album is, perhaps unsurprisingly, his least representative disc. Powered by the hit single "Cars", arguably the first British synth-pop song to dent the US charts, THE PLEASURE PRINCIPLE is a striking turnaround from the guitar-powered, Joy Division-like post-punk of his old band Tubeway Army. Aside from Paul Gardiner's bass and some percussion, every instrument is electronic.
To denote their futuristic simplicity the album's 10 songs are given one-word titles; they're all built on the same layers of analogue synthesizers and futuristic, dystopian lyrics. The album's resulting numbing quality is also pretty much its point.
This expanded, 30th Anniversary edition is a 2 disc set packaged in a jewelbox with slipcase and a 16 page book featuring photographs from the recording sessions with new liner notes. It has been newly remastered from the original analogue tapes and the second disc contains unreleased demo recordings, studio out-takes and single `B' sides.
