Superb retro analogue synth music that still sounds fresh, interesting and futuristic.
Highly recommended to anyone who has an interest in 80s style analogue synth - John Foxx is one of the masters of the genre.
A definite five star highly recommended purchase.

Bought this and 2 other JF&TM CDs (the last 3 releases in fact) ahead of a live concert in Glasgow's Concert Hall a few weeks ago. Glad I did, the music is very good, different and distinct from his early stuff (Metamatic). Yes - which I'm old enough to have bought on vinyl, first time round! Some of his vocals on ‘Evidence’ are ‘treated’ which takes a bit of getting used to. Overall - highly recommended. This is a well recorded production and if you have a decent hi-fi, you'll appreciate the quality and engineering.

Been a fan of John Foxx and his early Ultravox work during the 1970s .... This album is pure synth electronica and very transient
...Enjoyed listening to this album very much.

It's been a while since buying a John Foxx album,pleased to say I wasn't disappointed .Some excellent collaborations included and to my mind the three stand out tracks were Evidence,Changelings and A Falling Star,the latter in particular is a vastly superior version in comparison to the original track.

Found this album quite by accident, was a big fan of John Foxx back in the day. Bought it and loved it.

Foxx is continuing his (for me) comeback with the Maths. The sort of music I always loved delivered with a lot of energy and beauty. A couple of remixes thrown in don't detract from a great album (Do we still call them 'albums'?)

This "album" doesn't quite gel for me. Too many electronic ditties * The previous JF & TM album was in a similar vein but held together because of the stronger songs. I'm a long time John Foxx follower and this release though disappointing will not stop me from buying further output.
* anyone who creates their own electronic music will have hundreds of these 2 minute unfinished ideas

This is an excellent album. It's a meeting of 2 generations of electronic artists with John Foxx collaborating not only with Benge (The Maths) but also Matthew Dear, Gazelle Twin, Xeno & Oaklander, Tara Busch and The Soft Moon. A moody and massive record that refers back to classic analogue synth records from the late 70s and 80s but also looks forward too - the modern world echoes darkly in the sounds here.

I love this album - the darkest of the 3 by John Foxx & The Maths. But don't take my word for it, this release has been enjoying some wonderful reviews from the UK media:

'His best music since the glory days of Ultravox and Metamatic.' 4/5 UNCUT

'Evidence is the kind of timeless electronic album you can dream inside.' 8/10 CLASSIC ROCK

'Foxx's legacy has come to be revered. Foxx's third album with The Maths provides plenty of evidence why.' THE WIRE

'Escapist, dreamlike; glowing with sprawling analogue paranoia.' 8/10 BARCODE

'Another terrific lesson in analogue synth magic.' 8/10 VICE MAGAZINE

'John Foxx & The Maths are poets of electronic music and this release remains vibrant throughout.' ARTROCKER

'Dark and unsettling.' 4/5 CLASSIC POP
