Gary Numan: Jagged

If the only Gary Numan songs you know are "Cars" and "Are Friends Electric" please take the time to get to know more of his music. Besides, anyone who loves cats enough to be a patron of a cat charity gets an A in my gradebook.

I'm a relative newcomer to Gary Numan (born Gary Anthony James Webb) and I owe a lot of my education to Botley of Echoing the Sound. I was already somewhat familiar with his songs back in the 80's and 90's but my first album I ever purchased was the 2003 release Hybrid which had a harder feel than most of his typical synth pop/darkwave sound due in part to production assistance with the likes of Flood and Alan Moulder and I fell in love with it instantly. Keep in mind that Numan has had a long, steady and sucessful career. His first album came out in the 70's.

I'm not as enamored with Jagged as I was with Hybrid, however it is still a good album that stands on it's own. The tracks tie together thematically and flow into one another with ease. The sound is often soaring and haunting with unquestionably industrial soundscapes containing orchestral and electronic overtones. What Numan excels at the most though, are his simple yet profound lyrics. Take this snippet from the title track, Jagged:

What have we become?
All that we could be?
Think of this as mercy, a small gift from me
What does a confession ever do
But take my guilt away


Listen to:
"Jagged"

You get the strangest spam on here...

Anyway, I enjoyed the Gary Numan songs. I should probably purchase Hybrid or Jagged in the near future.

I thought you already owned Hybrid. Did I not give you a copy of it? If not, it's great. Get the delux version with the extra DVD footage.
