The Pleasure Principle (Gary Numan album). Redirected from Engineers (song)). The Pleasure Principle is the debut solo studio album by English musician Gary Numan. Released about six months after Replicas (1979), the second album with his band Tubeway Army, The Pleasure Principle peaked at number 1 in the United Kingdom. The Pleasure Principle has been described as featuring synth-pop and new wave throughout. Numan completely abandoned electric guitar on the album.

chart-topping Are Friends Electric, he had enough clout to convince his label (Beggar’s Banquet) to allow him to go with a solo identity. This album was a departure from the more guitar-based punk of Gary’s first two albums: Tubeway Army and Replicas. I wanted to experiment by making an album without guitars; I wanted to make a purely electronic album

The Pleasure Principle is also one of the first Gary Numan albums to feature true ensemble playing, especially heard within the airtight, killer groove of "Metal" (one of Numan's all-time best tracks). Starting things off with the atmospheric instrumental "Airlane," the quality of the songs gets stronger and stronger as the album progresses - "Films," ". " "Observer," "Conversation," the aforementioned "Cars," and the . Top Ten hit "Complex" all show Numan in top form

Gary Numan's third album, The Pleasure Principle, was not only the most influential synth-pop album this side of the Kraftwerk discography, it was also one of the key albums of the entire new wave era. While Numan found fame in the . with his first two releases, this was the one that broke him on the other side of the Atlantic. Numan played some guitar on the earlier albums, but here he switches to strictly synths. Crucially, he retained his bassist and drummer instead of going all electronic, lending a visceral rock feel to his sound
