Replicas by Gary Numan
Released: Feb 1979
Label: Beggars Banquet
Released in 1979, Replicas was where Numan began to fully develop his robotic, disconnected stance. The drum-driven tracks are augmented by quavering synthlines that still sound otherworldly, albeit more retro-futuristic than futuristic. "Are 'Friends' Electric?" was one of the best tracks to come out of the New Wave explosion, and it still sounds incredible.
