Band: TUBEWAY ARMY

Album: Self-titled debut

Released: 24 November 1978 – 40 years ago

Gary Numan’s guitar riffing is more prominent here than on any other of his albums, which gives the tunes a splendid Ziggy Stardust feel at times. Kicking things off with several strong compositions…”
Full review here – Score: 4/5
