CD Reviews

Just about every 12" version on one disc...

"Only disappointment for me was the EDIT of the near 11 minute Kevorkian mix of Airhead, which is only 7 minutes here! Listening to his stuff chronologically, his early stuff is by far his most "new wave" sounding--although, at this point "blinded me" is a bit too commercial sounding due to its popularity. Track times:

1. europa (4:02)
2. windpower (5:51)
3. flying north (5:36)
4. she blinded me (5:09)
5. one of our submarines (7:14)
6. get out of mix (8:00)
7. hyperactive (5:05)
8. dissidents (7:17)
9. may the cube be with you (6:49)
10. airhead (7:05)
11. hot sauce (7:00)
12. my brain is like a sieve (5:37)"

"I bought this mainly because of the extended versions of the songs from The Golden Age Of Wireless album, which is my favorite by Thomas Dolby.
I especially like the harmonizing vocals in Europa And The Pirate Twins...one of my all time favorite songs. This is actually the first version of the song I ever heard years ago.
Windpower is a great dance song.
Flying North also features an ambient break preceding an arpeggio(?) style synth solo.After listening to these extended versions you may not want to go back to listening to the shorter ones. The Flat Earth songs aren't bad, just not quite as interesting as the Golden Age Of Wireless songs. Dissidents and Hyperactive are both enjoyable.
For me the rest of the cd at best is ok.
I really don't care for Dolby's later work but I gave the cd 4 stars for the brilliant versions from The Golden Age Of Wireless."
Great 12" compillation!

"Just a great compillation of extended, remixed & short versions of the most known songs of TD. a perfect complement for any personal discography. 80's music followers listen to the samples."
