Remastered reissue of 1983 album with expanded artwork and 7 bonustracks. For 1983's 'Warriors' Gary Numan underwent another musical and image reconstruction. The rhythmic drive from the powerful drums was erradicated: either lowered in the mix or completely removed in some cases. In addition, female vocals were added, guitars were reintroduced in the form of undeniable wishy washiness and saxophone was more prominent. Perhaps this was partially to blame on the production by Bill Nelson (A Flock of Seagulls, Be Bop Deluxe, David Sylvian), but even the lyrics reflected a young Numan (only 25 at the time) who was already jaded and cynical, now probably near the point of exhaustion after eight successful albums in the course of five years. On earlier albums, Numan would assume a fantasy persona, the subjects of the songs on 'Warriors' sound more like they're from a man who's been completely trapped, caged, and is not in control of his own world. This can be seen from some of the first few minutes of the album as the first words out of Gary's mouth are "I fall down, no control somehow, no help now, my favour slides." It's unsurprising that in his own life, he was going through a number of struggles and by the end of the year, he had severed ties with his record label. Mastered from the original tapes, the reissue of this disc features all the B-sides from 1983, along with a single version of "Sister Surprise," and the full-length version of "Warriors," along with the previously unreleased, "Nameless and Forgotten," a fate he seemed to have been sealing with this record.
