5.0 out of 5 stars A CD out of the top drawer, 22 July 2002
This review is from: Aliens Ate My Buick (Audio CD)
This is one of those rare albums that feels as fresh and groovy today as it did when it came out around 16 years ago. It's not necessary to analyse this album too much , considering that TD apparently wrote all the tunes in just a few hours so that the musicians he was auditioning would have something to play. This is a fun album with plenty of get-up-and-go and lots of funk. The production is warm, crisp and clear; so whacking the volume right up just adds to the listening pleasure. Stand out tracks for me are Key To Her Ferrari, The Ability To Swing, My Brain Is Like A Sieve and Budapest By Blimp. While the other tracks may not be quite so strong, they're still pretty damn good. It's very hard to liken Thomas Dolby to anyone else but he's certainly got bags of talent. If you've never heard anything by him, then this will be a great start. Having said that, I reckon this is as good as it gets with TD - its my favourite album of his by a long stretch.
