** ''Berserker'' is Numan's first jump into sampler-heavy synthpop that screams "EIGHTIES" to the average listener. Though previous albums ''I, Assassin'' and ''Warriors'' incorporated female backup singers and saxophone solos, this one kicked off the run from 1984-1992 where Numan was really trying to WinBackTheCrowd by being a full-fledged pop artist. Later albums of this period were highly influenced by {{Creator/Prince}} and the production team of Jam & Lewis (famous for producing all of Creator/JanetJackson's work.)

* EpicRocking: Most of his albums from ''Berserker'' to ''Exile'' were released in two forms: one with the original songs and one with extended mixes of pretty much every song. Several of these added up to ''30 minutes'' to the run time of the record. Reissues of these albums put out in 1999 would contain the original songs, with only a couple of the extended mixes as bonus tracks.

* NewSoundAlbum:
** ''Replicas'' moved Numan away from post-punk and into New Wave territory.
** ''The Pleasure Principle'' removed guitars briefly from his work, but remains a powerful example of Synthpop.
** ''Dance'' is an art rock album inspired by {{Music/Japan}} and its lead singer, Creator/DavidSylvian. The album is loaded with minimalist arrangements, jazz inflections, fretless bass lead lines and many guest performers.

** ''Sacrifice'' is a sharp turn into industrial rock, with Numan dropping all pretenses of being a pop star again and returning to brooding synthpop.
