Remastered reissue of 1981 album with expanded artwork and 5 bonustracks. DANCE is an ironic title indeed for one of Gary Numan's latter- period recordings. This slab of decidedly undanceable tunes, replete with Numan's trademark synth rhythms, beatboxes, and beautifully sculpted robotic-analog sounds, remains vastly underrated and unappreciated. Numan's compositional finesse has hardly ebbed over time. If anything, his obsession with sci-fi imagery has grown ever more fantastic. "Slowcar to China" offers nearly quaint, purring beats and sparkling keyboards, while the stuttering rhythmic hiccups and bottom-end gank of "Night Talk" prove that Mick Karn's bass was integral to these recordings. DANCE certainly wasn't pop music-much of it is too odd and awry for radio exposure-but the album nonetheless managed to worm its way into numerous charts and hearts. With the new-electronic brigade discovering the retro joys of early '80s tech, DANCE is an album that warrants overdue re-evaluation, an outlandish space of bizarre and inspiring images and sounds from the past, future and somewhere in between.
