Thomas Dolby: The Flat Earth (1984)

The track most people are likely to know from this record is Hyperactive. I remember listening to that track way too many times. The video is great too, but it appears not to be on Youtube, though there is a mangled version of the video for the 12" mix. The video does not sync up with the lyrics, and that irritates me, so I can't post it here.

This record, like his first, is truly amazing, and it's a pity that so many people have not heard it, or have only heard the aforementioned single.

The live version of Hyperactive from the Old Grey Whistle Test is very good.
