Good Trip

This is one the coolest albums I think I've ever heard. I'm not sure if it is a concept album, but it sure feels like one, like if The Mars Volta played synth and keyboard. The drummers pretty funky to keep things interesting. I'm a huge fan of listenening to an album first to last track and this is easily one of my favorite albums.


Gary Numan is the sonic offspring of Kraftwerk and David Bowie. A high grade alchemist, he's one of those artists who stole heavily from his favorites and developed a sound highly influential in itself. Under appreciated in North America, his best tunes have surprising heft and are insanely catchy. Be warned.

Cinq étoiles !

Y en a encore plus que « Cars » sur cet album. Complex, Metal, M.E, Engineers. Ce sont toutes superbes. Pis les trois dernières chansons aussi. Je peux écouter de l'album au complet.
