iTunes Review

Most fans of Gary Numan & The Tubeway Army know their 1979 sophomore long-player for the new-wave synth-pop hit “Are Friends Electric?,” but Replicas began as a concept album, based on a book that Numan never finished about a futuristic metropolis where androids with cloned human skin called “Machmen” team up with machines to keep citizens controlled under fear and force. Replicas opens with “Me! I Disconnect from You,” an angular piece of futuristic pop punctuated by distorted Moogs and robotic beats that hammer mechanically as Numan’s robotic voice sings from a defecting Machmen’s point of view. Aside from being the most popular tune on the album “Are Friends Electric?” furthers the storyline as Numan muses on the empathy of androids. The cold and haunting ballad “Down In the Park” is an often overlooked gem. This Redux version boasts a complete earlier version of the album that began recording in 1978, including a different take on the instrumental “When The Machines Rock” that features a previously lost vocal track by Numan.

Customer Reviews

Good. But, It can be better.

Disc 1 and 2 are the same. The early versions sound almost exactly the same (except "When The Machines Rock", witch has vocals). But if you buy this CD on www.numan.co.uk, you get a third disc. On the third disc, there is a remix of "Are 'Friends' Electric?", that is just as good as the original. Overall, I would say get it if you don't already have the original. But, get it from www.numan.co.uk.

I think that the early versions sound awesome! It's the little differences that make it so amazing and if you're a true Gary Numan fan a "Numanite", then you'll know exactly what I'm talking about!!!

How can this only be the second review?

This is the greatest album that I have ever discovered on itunes. Why does the WORLD not know about Gary???!

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

One of the founding fathers of synth pop, Gary Numan's influence extends far beyond his lone American hit, "Cars," which still stands as one of the defining new wave singles. That seminal track helped usher in the synth pop era on both sides of the Atlantic, especially his native U.K., where he was a genuine pop star and consistent hitmaker during the early '80s. Even after new wave had petered out, Numan's impact continued to make itself felt; his dark, paranoid vision, theatrically icy alien persona,...
