The Golden Age of Wireless

Thomas Dolby

Venice In Peril Records

One of the more confusing releases of its day, The Golden Age of Wireless appeared in four separate versions over three years’ time, so trying to pin down exactly what version to address can sometimes vary, not least because Dolby’s breakout single, the quirky electronic love song “She Blinded Me With Science,” was first on the album in the US, as was “One of Our Submarines.” In any version, Golden Age is an engaging synthpop beauty, Dolby showcasing his chops on songs like “Europa and the Pirate Twins,” “Airwaves” and “Flying North.”
