these numbers certainly add up! you could fill a book unpicking the many nuances of this dizzying album of mutating industrial pop but, in short, it's a masterpiece.

The Maths (john Foxx, Benge, Hannah Peel and now former ultravox guitarist robin simon) have created an album of dark, writhing glamour. Opener ‘My Ghost’ sounds like haunted static in a cold wind, the title track is a twisted glam-punk celebration of ‘the outsider’ who leaves the fringes to make himself visible, while Foxx switches to a sinister Ferry-esque croon on ‘Tarzan And Jane Regained’. But they're just the tip of the iceberg, baby! “a stunning album – one which improves with every listen as intricate sounds are discovered on each play – and, one that sees John Foxx at a career high. Inventive, expansive and totally encapsulating” - louder than war.
