(Reviewed by DarkWave):
now this is very personal. Telekon is the album that got me first into
New Wave and synth pop music. After Numan had done great works on "The
Pleasure Principle" and other albums, he created is masterpiece,
Telekon. Beautiful, well-written lyrics, powerful and intelligent, this
album is highly underrated amongs music's critics. It is one of the most
important album of the new wave era. I will forever be touched by Numan's
music. Here are my favorite songs: The Aircrash Bureau, We Are Glass,
I Dream Of Wires, The Joy Circuit, I Die you Die...well I could name them
all. Numan is the master of synth pop/New Wave...for me.

to this review by Sonny
are correct about Gary Numan. "The Pleasure Principle" was my
first New Wave album.
The best thing about Numan is that he is still making music. The CD he
released last year "Pure" is great. It stayed in my CD player
for about a month.
