    I would try I, Assassin if Dance seems too dense/complex. I know it took me a few listens to fully appreciate Dance.

    I do agree with you on Pure too!

    Gary's been playing My Name Is Ruin live with his daughter Persia at these recent shows.

    Ghost Nation, Mercy, Pray for the Pain You Serve and When the World Comes Apart have all been played live now.

    Also, And It All Began With You was premiered on a radio show yesterday.

    "And It All Began With You" is now on the streaming services. It's my favourite of the songs premiered so far, a simply amazing sound with Numan's voice way up front. Cool cover art, too:

    So I received my autographed hand written lyrics page in the mail today. It's for 'Broken' and pleases me to no end. Should I post picture here? I wasn't sure if lyrics would need spoiler tag. :'D

    The albums now up on Spotify, it's pretty good. I might pick this up on payday.

    I like it, but... his vocal delivery, patterns, and overall tone are unchanged from the last two or three albums. It's like he sings every song the same way now just with different lyrics and music in the background. There's not much variation. I'm a big fan of his catalog, but I just find myself becoming more and more bored with each new album.

    While I wouldn't say I was bored with it, I did find it startling how similar My Name Is Ruin was to the songs on Splinter! Listening to Savage that feeling didn't exactly go away, it's like a direct continuation of the previous album.

    Deliberately so. Hence the similar subtitle.

    i hear a few similar motifs on the new album from the previous one, but nothing that makes me feel like he didn't make a new album. trent repeats motifs all the time and people think it's cool how it connects his work...why can't gary do the same?

    i listened to Savage this morning and i thoroughly enjoyed it. the guitar tone isn't quite as full as Splinter, which is about my only complaint. as an album, i feel like it flowed a bit better than Splinter, but there weren't as many songs that i absolutely loved. overall, a solid album, and it fits nicely with its predecessor as a suite.

    I've been a fan of Numan since '95. Cool to see him making music he loves and is great. Savage and Pure are my favorite late era Numan albums.

    Kind of mindblowing to think that NONE of the sounds on The Pleasure Principle were sequenced; all of it was played by hand. Even Telekon just had rudimentary drum machine programming, and only with Dance did he really get into melodic sequencing (just thinking of the trippy Roland Jupiter-4 arpeggio pattern on "Cry, the Clock Said" makes my hair stand on end).
