  1. Pure is Gary Numan's richest, most powerful and most aggressive work in years.
  2. 60
    Numan is now crafting music that sounds identical to his disciples. [Nov 2000, p.118]
  3. One has to give credit to an '80s new wave musician who can adapt and create contemporary-sounding music.... The album can comfortably sit alongside Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails on store shelves. Pure doesn't drive like the industrialized adrenaline rush that is, say, Orgy, but the tracks' lingering and creepy pace leaves behind a different kind of impact -- it's more haunting than relentless
