MegaDrive – 198XAD (2014)

Mega Drive - 198XAD MegaDrive lead us back to the electronic music of the 80’s with nowadays sound make-up. If you’re too lazy to dig up classics like Klaus Schulze (and Tangerine Dream), Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk and so on, MegaDrive will introduce you to their fabulous world. It’s called retro revival and it’s definitively a pleasant and an alternative option. And well, if you’re old or wise enough to listen all those wonderful and creative artists of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s already, MegaDrive it’s still a quite nice option to fill up your ears and feed your brain with damaged sound waves.

Gary Numan – Telekon (1980)

September 5, 1980, Gary Numan released “Telekon” the third and final studio release of what Numan retrospectively termed the “Machine” section of his career, following “Replicas” with Tubeway Army and “The Pleasure Principle” in 1979, the first album under his own name. Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) claimed to have listened to it every day during the making of “Pretty Hate Machine” while Stephin Merritt from The Magnetic Fields also became a Numan fan through the album. Otherwise, “Telekon” received a largely hostile reception from contemporary music critics. Many critics anyway considered Numan one of the “one-hit wonders” for his most popular song “Cars”, a single from his previous album. For the less ignorants, it is announced that Numan’s new album entitled “Dead Son Rising” will be released on September 12, 2011. Read more Gary Numan – Telekon (1980)

The Prodigy – Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned (2004)

Considered by many as a failure, “Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned”, the fourth studio album by The Prodigy, released on 23rd August 2004, 7 years ago, is the band lowest sold album and it was a departure from the band’s previous, mainstream success album, “The Fat of the Land”. Of the three members of The Prodigy, only Howlett is present on the album, some consider it almost a solo release of Howlett with the appearance of a lot of guest stars including actress Juliette Lewis, Oasis frontmen Liam and Noel Gallagher, Kool Keith of the Ultramagnetic MCs, who was previously featured in “Diesel Power”, American rapper Twista, Shahin Badar, English hip hop musician Princess Superstar, and The Magnificent Ping Pong Bitches.
Critics might dislike this one, I’m still loving it. Read more The Prodigy – Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned (2004)
