I first discovered John Foxx years ago through an album called "Translucence and Drift" which he made with American piano composer Harold Budd. Harold Budd has quite a few collaborations yet TD stands out as a stellar, powerful minimalist atmospheric double album. Thusly, I began to delve into the discography of John Foxx, a former Ultravox member. Before the Cathedral Oceans, there was a Garden and Metamatic. A staple of the musical "futuristic" movement, Metamatic is darker and more detached than even Numan's early works. Foxx described this album as "carcrash" music. It is definitely inspired by the cold life of the city with people being reduced to liquid form. When listening to this CD, one hears the soundtrack of the period when the 1970s turned to the 1980s.
