The cover and title echo back to Magritte’s 1937 painting Le Principe du Plaisir.

Most people know this album for the track “Cars” but it’s really a more important album than that would suggest. It’s Numan moving away from Tubeway Army, recording as their single “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” was released.

Early synth, new wave, electronic album you should pick up given the chance
