Somewhat inconsistent but his best albums are masterpieces.

After all those years of crap records, I was so shocked when he recovered with all those ones like Pure, Jagged. Its the most remarkable artistic comeback I can think of.

The stuff he did with Tubeway Army and his first solo album really are great. Not question a major influence for a lot of artists today. However, he has a lot of material out and yet only two real classics I can think of, The Pleasure Principle & Replicas (with Tubeway Army). Those two are great but I think he's missed the mark so much that it takes away his status from reaching true greatness.

Great synth pioneer with intricate melodies and rhythms - groundbreaking in the late 70's and one of my favourite artists - has found his feet again with his last two or three darker albums

I absolutely ADORE Gary Numan. I especially love the stuff he recorded with Tubeway Army. Gary Numan is the godfather of synth and he's as much a science fiction writer as he is a musician. Songs about alienation, cloning, secret police, futuristic junkies fill his albums and they are disturbingly beautiful. Punk meeths synth...this is really cool stuff. Check it out!

I like Gary Numan's early stuff, but the guy is not a good singer or songwriter. He throws out decent synth riffs and enough of a beat and melody to keep the music interesting. I'm not bored listening to his stuff, but he never moves into greatness territory.
