Sacrifice For years i was always listening to the 1st song on an album,especially a Gary Numan one,to come up and make an impression.
Scar genlty starts with a softer approach but then BANG,into the beat and again were away with some Vocals and drums,setting the tone of the song,a more melodic set out chorus,with some female backing vocals Magic - Gary Numan - Sacrifice (Extended Mixes) in there. Then the guitar orientated Love and Napalm tries to break out of the speakers,just the guitar line to bring the song in,but Colonel Bogey March - Die Westfälischen Nachtigallen - Happy Marching the rest comes in a Numan wall of sound comes in,loud as you like,still dark in its lyrical content,a spoken word break down in the middle,straight from the heart and his memories,you can imagine it spoken with a sneer on his face,"All the pride and the shame,all the friends that came from nowhere and all crawled back again",words he must have wanted to say again and again,i hate to say it but Numan is Bitter on this album,he is still here,still fighting,and has used that to produce some Magic - Gary Numan - Sacrifice (Extended Mixes) songs in total.
Bleed starts atmospherically and you wonder if its another Ballad,but up comes the backing track,and then the drums kick in,1st verse is just vocals and drums,then powerfully into the chorus,halfway into the song there is Jim Croce - It Doesnt Have To Be That Way / Roller Derby Queen melody sweeping itself into the song,as Numan gently sings along to it they compliment each other so well.
Dont let me down And you let me down"disappear in a bass synth drone and the CD stopped. I was well and truly impressed,Numan had basically stripped himself to his roots,just him on his own,writing from his heart,sometimes in anger and this is how he brings the best out of himself,and i for one think this gave us great album,so many shades,different vocal styles,certainly more adventurous,and some well and trull crafted songs and anthenmis melodies.
He delivered for me,and was a turning point for him to where his music is today. BY Blair. To all Gary Numan fans the Numanme Forum is the forum for you a place for you to be completely Numanized.
