#1 in the series. This was originally released as a limited-edition blue vinyl LP, of which 5000 were sold. It was later, after the success of Replicas, reissued with new artwork (shown here).

#2 in the series. This was Gary's big breakthrough. The single "Are 'Friends' Electric?" hit #1 on the singles chart during the same week that the album managed to attain the #1 spot on the albums chart. This all happened while Gary was in the studio already recording the follow-up album.

#3 in the series. This was Gary's second consecutive #1 album in the UK, which went #1 at the same time the single "Cars" achieved the same feat on the singles chart - the second time during 1979 he accomplished this rare double. Gary Numan is one of only 13 artists who can claim the "double double". A landmark album featuring NO guitars whatsoever.

#4 in the series. This was Gary's third consecutive #1 album in the UK, and in my mind is probably the most brilliant album he created during his time with Beggars. Layered textures and the return of guitars, along with the viola and other exotica.
