Different track order than my cd. Not necessarily a bad thing as you get the indelible hit single She blinded me with science right off the bat, not last as with the cd. Sound quality wise it's quite nice. Absolutely quiet, no pops crackles etc. at all. The lush electronic soundscapes are gorgeous, it really pops. Definitely one of the all time great synth pop albums, one of the better 80s albums overall. Big fan of the album so I'm quite pleased to have added this LP to my vinyl collection.

Does anyone know if this pressing contains the original printed inner sleeve?

I have both versions of this album that are on vinyl. However, on this cassette Radio Silence is a completely different version. Different beat and different vocal takes. Anyone have more information about this change?

Note a different track list from what's on the picture. This spanish version has the same track order as the original english one, no She Blinded Me With Science.

The Europe version I own sound so damn lousy that I thought my recorder player or amp was broken. Are the other version better and don't sound like someone filtered out all mids and lows?

Time listed for She Blinded Me With Science is incorrect for this version. It's 3:41 not 5:09.

I remember finding the original version in a second hand shop, scrapped somewhere on the bottom shelf, not knowing what it might sound like. I guess, up to that point I had a rather blurred image of Thomas Dolby more for his appearance in pop-magazines than music - and it wasn't necessarily 'love' at first sight.

However, as an electronic music fan, I was immediately attracted to what was offered via instrumental credits read on the inner sleeve (wave computer, for instance was an immediate charmer). Of course, when I gave the album its first spin, 'The Golden Age of Wireless' was a strange affair of multi-instrumentalism I wasn't yet prepared for - synthetics were there but had a more subtle role of informing the real instruments resulting in a rather complex rock-image of a certain electro-pop album. But that's the beauty of it - while it might not grab you on the first couple of listens, 'The Golden Age of Wireless' is one of those albums which continues to grow on you without doing harm; it's more like a reflection in the mirror, a traveling soundtrack to another dimension.

Within the offered drum patterns, guitars, vocals, etc., there is something fascinating and frightening at the same time (as always is with these kinds of records), something that reached me on a subconscious level. A record which gives the term 'brainwash' positive meaning; whether groovier or easier listening exposure - 'Flying North', 'Commercial Breakup', 'Weightless', 'Europa & the Pirate Twins', 'Windpower', 'The Wreck of the Fairchild', 'Airwaves', 'Radio Silence' and 'Cloudburst at Shingle Street' all seem to demonstrate this incredible power over will.

Japanese singer in track two is obviously Akiko Yano (and not "Yono" as it is misprinted inside booklet but not on back of booklet), Ryuichi Sakamoto's ex-wife. She blinded me with science is sort of a "tribute" to her. In that song you can clearly hear a guy saying at one point "Good heavens, Miss Sakamoto, you're beautiful !!"…
