A transition album of sorts, Dance
departing from the jerky machine music of his synth pop prime to embrace a (bit) warmer sound that is less robotic and more free-form. The subject matter on highlights like "She's Got Claws," "Slowcar to China," "Cry the Clock Said," and "Crash" are quintessentially Numan
, but their musical frameworks are quite far removed from early hits like "Are 'Friends' Electric?" and "Cars."
