    Default Album Club, November 2019: Thomas Dolby - 'The Flat Earth'

    Try listening again Barry , there is guitar on every track I think. Its beautifully played and very prominent on your favourite track “scare myself”. I just checked the album notes and its Kevin Armstrong.

    Edit possibly no guitar on Mulu The rainforest.

    Aliens Ate My Buick is brilliant.

    10 out of 10 for me, I love Thomas Dolbys music.

    I tried to like this album however the further I got into the tracks the more I realised I really do not enjoy this style of music.
    Probably why I missed it and many more of this style back in the day. 5

    I have always loved Thomas Dolby:

    I have always felt Leipzig calling. Maybe too many personal misty bus-queue mornings. But sheer poetry.

    "One of our submarines" was a goodie too. Guess I am "Hyperactive".too.
