I actually have been listening to the Hoopla version of this album for the last week. I really liked Dolby back in the eighties and thought I would see if I still did. I was amazed how much I really enjoyed his very complex music.
I especially liked the song "I Scare Myself", in fact I searched for the song on Freegal and found a few different versions, which I also enjoyed (Dan Hicks the original writer of the song was even there). Listening to the other versions made me realized how complex the tune is and appreciate Dolby' s music ability even more.
I also found out that he still does music and is a College Professor of musicology!
I found the more I listen to all the tracks, the more I came to appreciate them, even after more than 30 years!!
Science ! One of the biggest stars of early MTV gets his due on this 16-track "best-of," which includes She Blinded Me with Science; Europa and the Pirate Twins; Hyperactive; Airwaves (7" version); One of Our Submarines , and more.
Believe me - I really did try to appreciate Thomas Dolby's music (from a retrospective point of view) - But I found (after listening to the songs on this CD) that I just could not understand this dude's apparent popularity as it stood during the new wave era in pop music history at all.
Out of this "Best Of" CD's 16 tracks - I only (sort of) liked one song and that was - She Blinded Me With Science. All the rest were totally forgettable. Perhaps if Thomas "tone-deaf" Dolby could actually carry a tune, then, yes, maybe, my opinion would be different..... (*Watch music-video*)
