5.0 out of 5 stars Georgeous, just like Autumn., 10 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When you get past science, there is a magnificent jewel of beauty here.
Debut's like this and of this musical and technical skill, are very unique and rare.
I first bought this album in 1988 when i saw it in knights record shop, botanic avenue, belfast, i-d
always meant to buy it well before then!, but i still have the lp with the date written inside it, i bought it may 88, it has always reminded me of autumn, perhaps because of the beautiful haunting melodys and meaningfullness, air waves as an example.
Timeless zietgiest for a very creative skilled man! Who also married kirby from dynasty!.
Wish i had married him. Then i could have peeked his very private fairlight! Lol.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL TIME CLASSICAL SYNTHESIZER, 5 Nov 2000
By A Customer
I first brought this album on vinyl on its release. This was before it was re-released with "she Blinded me with science" and "one of our submarines is missing" on it and even then it was a classic. I believe that "radio silence" on the CD is a remix and although good is not quite as good as the original.
However the latest version of this album still holds up well despite the loss from the original release of "Wreck of the Fairchild".
Definately worth buying purely for the moods Dolby can create with his music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thomas Dolby Golden Age Of Wireless, 14 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sublime

I bought this to replace my scratched and heavily abused vinyl copy. The only problem is that the songs are out of sequence compared to the original vinyl and that ruined the overall effect for me. 4 stars out of five though, and I'll be interested in the forthcoming remasterd version out soon

5.0 out of 5 stars Radio gold!, 4 Mar 2014
His best album, how can it not be?

Wonderful analogue synths, dark 'Cold War' sensibility, lyrics that take you so far beyond 'boy meets girl'!

The only downside is all the confusing different versions - there's a good explanation here:
