Telekon is his most original/best and his most consistent from start to finish. I wonder how it was received when it came out. I remember theres some youtube clips of synth pop guys like soft cel, and perhaps human league on some talk show going on about how passé Numan was on his 4th album or so, how uncool he was by then (with his mad max thunderdome villain look) , it made me think, I wonder if they realized then that on this and his previous albums, that Numan acheived something that none of those other synth pop bands ever did. This still sounds fresh and original today and as much as I love soft cel and human league, they always sounded like 80s music.

Fantastic album. Last of the classic 'Replicas/Pleasure Pricincple' sound. A shame that the original LP mix has not been released on CD (all CD's are taken from an alternate mix, as the original masters have been lost). 100% find the original LP, great dynamics and the originally intended mix.

Some of the variants of both this And the U.K. Beggars Banquet pressings are styrene, so it’s worth bearing that in mind if your trying to source an archive copy.

Would absolutely use caution with this particular pressing as there’s a high likelihood it’s styrene and not vinyl. Identifiers are a thicker than usual outer rim, the label isn’t flat, there’s a raised border around the outer part of the label, and if you hold it up to the light the dead wax the dead wax has a slight transparency. I’m not sure why this pressing was approved it sounds terrible.

Picked up my copy on release day @ HMV Bristol. matrix/runout STRAWBERRY BEGA 19 A-1 W5 and STRAWBERRY BEGA 19 A-2 W8. The 7 inch STRAWBERRY W24 SAM 126 A1 and STRAWBERRY SAM 126 B1 W22 it came in the square matt sleeve with product flyer, no poster. I have the other version which came with the glossy cut corner inner sleeve and is styrene not vinyl. So be careful with that one.

This is one of those pressings to be cautious about. I have both this one and the pressing with the free single. This edition was pressed on styrene and came in the glossy corners cut sleeve. The sound quality is vastly different, this one looses all the warmth.

What I consider to be Numan's best album from start to finish with not a bad song on it and flowing from start to finish. I prefer the album without I Die You Die / We are Glass which were the two main singles (also This Wreckage which didn't achieve as much success as the others in the top 40). Stand out tracks This Wreckage, The Aircrash Bureau, Telekon, I dream of wires and please push no more. Many would choose The Pleasure Principle as the best Numan Album, I would choose this 100 times over. It is such more creative and has not one single weak track on it,

The On Broadway song is just fantastic. Worth searching for.
