AllMusic Review by François Couture; Score: ****½
• Immunity marked a return to solo work for Rupert Hine after a few years with Quantum Jump. Early–'80s synth–pop did not age very well as a genre, but this album (like maybe Jon Anderson's Animation) is a stellar exception. As a producer, Hine's vision had been sharpened by his work with, among others, Anthony Phillips. One finds here an atmosphere similar to the latter's LP Sides, but also to Peter Hammill's solo albums from the same period. Of course, Hine's approach was closer to pop, but he favored disquieting moods, oblique accompaniments, poetic lyrics, and dramatic effects. Highlights include the gloomy "I Think a Man Will Hang Soon," the catchy title track, the delicate "Samsara," and the progressively schizophrenic masterpiece "Make a Wish," although each of the album's original nine tracks is a gem, full of clever ideas and daring artistic choices. Hine handles most instruments. Guest musicians include Phil Collins (drums on two tracks), Marianne Faithfull (back vocals on one track), while guitarist Phil Palmer can be heard throughout the album. The 2001 CD reissue on Voiceprint's imprint Misplaced added the B–side "Scratching at Success" and "Introduction to the Menace," the stage walk–on music Hine used for his shows at the time. It also features the original "scarier" mixes of "I Think a Man Will Hang Soon" and "Make a Wish," both rejected by the record label in 1981. For anyone interested in Hine's singer/songwriter career, Immunity is the place to start. • http://www.allmusic.com/

• Rupert's career as a producer spans more than 45 years and some 125 albums. So his wide–ranging musical perspective and accomplishments — which are commercial and eclectic — made him the obvious choice to write the foreword for the definitive reference work on music producers: Billboard's 'The Encyclopedia Of Record Producers'.
• In fact, the encyclopedia states: 'Few producers have worked with as wide a stylistic range of gold and platinum–selling artists as Hine including Tina Turner, The Fixx, Howard Jones, Chris de Burgh, Rush, Bob Geldof, Stevie Nicks, Thomson Twins, The Waterboys, Kate Bush, Suzanne Vega, Underworld, Milla Jovovich and Duncan Sheik'. • It goes on to talk of Rupert's significant work under the commercial radar that includes The Velvet Underground's Nico, supermodel Milla Jovovich and techno–pioneers Underworld, concluding with: 'and, of course, Hine himself (6 albums under his own name, 3 under the alias Thinkman plus 2 with his 70s band Quantum Jump.'
• As a leader rather than a follower when it comes to technology, Rupert pioneered electronic musical instrument interfaces with the fledgling MIDI. Invited by Apple in the 90s to help demonstrate the powers of their ground–breaking software engines to the music–world's creative thinkers, Rupert has consistently championed the incorporation of the digital environment into art and creativity.
• He is a founder member of the Music Producers Guild, the International MIDI Association and a member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in the US. In 2011 he received an APRS Fellowship Award from the legendary Sir George Martin.
