Reseña de álbum

A darling of early MTV (it seemed like you couldn't escape the channel's nonstop airing of his humorous "She Blinded Me with Science" clip circa 1982), Thomas Dolby subsequently carved a niche for himself, despite never replicating his initial commercial success. Originally issued as a limited-edition, home-packaged, signed and numbered release (of which only 1,000 were pressed), Dolby's 2003 effort, Forty, was later issued as a more readily available import. Recorded live over a pair of performances in California, this seven-track set shows that Dolby still has a knack for quirky performances — even 20 years after he first burst onto the new wave scene. Although the aforementioned "She Blinded Me with Science" is nowhere to be found here, several other of Dolby's all-time favorites are, including the moderate MTV hit "Hyperactive," the Danny Elfman-esque "The Ability to Swing," and "One of Our Submarines." While hardcore fanatics will welcome just about any release that has the Thomas Dolby name stamped on it, it's obvious that admirers would have much preferred receiving an all-new studio album (of which Dolby hasn't issued since 1994) than a live set.

What a great CD!

I never had the opportunity to see Thomas Dolby live, but this CD gives me, the listener, a glimpse into his stage sound. The music is tight and he sounds as great as he did in the 80's when he released Live Wireless. If you can find a rare copy Live Wireless for sale online, you'll notice the sound is much better on Forty. If you are a Thomas Dolby fan I highly recommend adding this CD to your collection!

Great Live sound

Wow what a treat. This sounds even better that his earlier material which is really over the top. Who recorded this CD! "One of my Submarines" is fantastic! I would reccommend this to anyone looking for a surberb audio experience. A DVD 5.1 or other multi-channel mix would be stunning! I would love to find out where and how this record was made. My only dissapointment is the lack of information and credits for this masterpiece. My kids love it too! Look forward to seeing Mr. Dolby in concert this summer! Buy this CD to experience true audio fidelity bliss. Wow...

An Intimate Moment With Thomas

It was a genuine thrill to find this album on iTunes; it truly is limited edition, and hard copies are being harder & more expensive to locate. The recording IS exceptional, as another reviewer mentioned. It is near-studio quality, with the crowd mixed at a low but convincing level... you're not going to lose a drop of the music to crowd noise as happens with some live albums. Mr. Dolby's voice at brief moments seems not quite 100%, but that's part of the charm of this album. He may occasionally be straining slightly for a note, but it's never uncomfortable to listen to & actually reminds you that he's creating this art LIVE, in real time. I for one am thankful he didn't overdub the vocals, despite the fact that I bet it bugs him to listen back. :-) Some listeners may not even notice. As I understand, this album was recorded at Thomas's 40th birthday party (hense the name)... I'm thankful he allowed us to join the party! More than a collection of great songs, it's a great experience.

Though he never had many hits, Thomas Dolby became one of the most recognizable figures of the synth pop movement of early-'80s new wave. This was largely due to his skillful marketing. Dolby promoted himself as a kind of mad scientist, an egghead who had successfully harnessed the power of synthesizers and samplers and used them to make catchy pop and light electro-funk. Before he launched a solo career, Dolby had worked as a studio musician, technician, and songwriter; his most notable work as...
