Good point...without "Low" there'd be no Gary Numan. For a very short while people thought this was the new Bowie, thing is it's as if he had all the ingredients but not the recipe typa thing. Pulled it for the first thee albums (I still think Telekon - his third, is excellent) then after that, he constantly dipped in and out of mediocrity and the occasional plane crash, though did have a cult following attending all his gigs who couldn't make the Bowie connection as they were a bit too young.
