Limited edition CD+DVD with 'The Fall' promo video, interviews, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, gallery and slide show. 24 Page hardback book Now at same price as normal digipack. Gary Numan's Dead Son Rising grew out of a set of demos the singer had left from previous projects, but as he explains: The original ideas that sparked off these songs are now barely visible. It s grown into another animal, something more experimental. Produced and co-written by Ade Fenton ( Numan s collaborator on 2006 s Jagged), the material ranges from the heavily anthemic The Fall (written about an old friendship gone bad ) to the Arabic and ghostly We Are The Lost and one of the standout moments, the brooding Dead Sun Rising . The latter both contain elements from a sci-fi fantasy story Numan has been writing over the last few years. Meanwhile, troubled relationships are explored on For The Rest Of My Life and Not The Love We Dream Of , and there s also room for two instrumentals ( Resurrection and Into Battle ), showcasing some of the soundtrack-type material that Numan and Fenton have been working on recently. It all adds up to one of Numan s most atmospheric albums one for those who loved his B-side experiments in the past but also containing some very direct, streamlined electronic rock in the likes of Big Noise Transmission , The Fall and When The Sky Bleeds, He Will Come .

"Dead Son Rising" is a complete album, one of the most complete albums I've heard in a long while. More than just a collection of singles, this album has things like PACE and FLOW from track to track, start to finish. As it ends, it compels the listener to play it again. "Resurrection" draws the listener in as it builds, setting the stage for "Big Noise Transmission", which flat out rocks more than any Numan track since "Crazier". "Dead Sun Rising", the almost-title-track, may be the best of many unabashedly-melodic industrial moments on the album. The lyrics dip once again into one of Numan's sci-fi personas, and the bells in the instrumental break are absolutely gorgeous. "When The Sky Bleeds, He Will Come" works through a slow crawl and then satisfyingly breaks into a rocking-chorus, then does it a couple more times for good measure.
This leads into "For The Rest of My Life" and "Not The Love We Dream Of", a couple of songs about relationships gone wrong which marks a welcome variation in Numan's lyrics. It feels as though he's brought the synths back from Pleasure Principle to compliment industrial noise and a great acoustic guitar riff. Then suddenly, bare piano chords begin "Not The Love We Dream Of" and the track builds with a mournful electronic backbone. We haven't had piano accompaniment to this much raw emotion from Numan since... Telekon?
So much quality already and we haven't even reached the centerpiece of the album, "The Fall", a song Numan premiered live years ago. Fans have been anticipating the studio version ever since, and it doesn't disappoint -- here we have the best version of "The Fall" yet. It's got spine-tingling sounds even before the lyrics kick in, and one of the best, most massive choruses in Industrial Rock. To recover, we're given the atmospheric crawl, "We Are The Lost", which sounds an awful lot like it could have come from Nine Inch Nails' "With Teeth" album, but for a few vocal lines from Numan. This begins the album's shift from Industrial Rock into atmospheric instrumental territory.
It feels like a natural shift as "We Are Lost" builds to a satisfying climax and segues into a reprise of "For The Rest Of My Life". Playing this melody on piano only accentuates how achingly beautiful this track really is. The reprise version simply oozes atmosphere as it builds to the chorus. Finally, the album gives us another brilliant instrumental, the perhaps poorly named "Into Battle". The name is the only thing I can fault this one on -- anyone who enjoyed the best of Nine Inch Nails' "Ghosts" project will enjoy this as well. It finishes with a piano-only rendition of "Not The Love We Dream Of". It feels as this point as though we have been given the modern equivalent of Numan's "Telekon" remastered CD, complete with piano-laden extra tracks. These tracks complete the experience here, just as those made the great "Telekon" a better, more-complete listening experience.
I have no hesitation in declaring "Dead Son Rising" the best of Numan's newer albums. As great as "Jagged", "Pure", and "Exile" are, none of them match the sheer variety and quality of this new album. I'd be remiss not to mention the growing musical partnership of Numan and Fenton. Without Ade Fenton, this project may never have happened -- he and Numan have developed into a true musical partnership. Long may it continue.
Though nothing will ever replace "Telekon" as the greatest Numan album for me, this combines the best of his Industrial sound with a great chunk of Telekon wrenched into the future. I'd call it his best and most complete album since 1981's "Dance", and the best album of the year to boot. Not bad for 'a collection of leftovers'.
The album begins with the excellent atmospheric instrumental "Resurrection" before the beats of "Big Noise Transmission" take over, the song has a real Prodigy feel about it and has Numan on fine vocal form and at times whispering the lyrics. The first single from the album "The Fall" is also one of the standout tracks starting out with a guitar sounding like Nine Inch Nails "The Day The World Went Away" from "The Fragile" album before some big beats kick in, it also features a great break down as Numan sings "How Does It Feel?", the song is about a friendship that ended.
The song "When The Sky Bleeds, He Will Come" is another standout as it builds slowly before a big industrial sounding guitar kicks in. We get two versions of the one song on the album in the song "For The Rest Of My Life" which is good but bettered by the reprised version that opens with a quiet piano before an acoustic guitar joins in with Numans vocal that is buried in the mix, it again sounds like Nine Inch Nails this time something of "Ghosts", Trent Reznor is a big influence on Numan now just as Numan was for Reznor when he was starting out. The song "Dead Sun Rising" is a song full of big beats and distorted synths and uses Numans cold vocal style delivery perfectly.
It's great to have Gary Numan making new music in the year 2011 and great music at that especially for a man who took a right bashing from the press, who should be ashamed of themselves for the way they treated him, it's great that he had the last laugh when so many acts came out and said how much an influence he has been on their carears. With "Dead Son Rising" there might be a few more joining that list!
Hurry up and come state-side, Mr. Numan! Another great album! ;)
