Gary Numan – Replicas (1979)
This is an album I’ve adored for quite sometime now, although I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it here. I love Gary Numan, and this is my favorite album of his, although it’s technically released as Tubeway Army and before Gary began releasing his own solo records. (Pleasure Principle & Telekon are also freakin’ amazing). There’s something about solely using synths, live percussion and bass that I absolutely love. The use of the Polymoog is really awesome too, a synth from the 1970’s and one of Moog’s early Polyphonic synthesizers (there aren’t many Moog varieties that are polyphonic). I actually really want one badly! “Down in the Park”, “Are Friends Electric?”, “I’m Praying to The Aliens” are all classics.
