4.0 out of 5 stars Dolby stays the same and keeps changing, July 14, 1998
This review is from: Gate to Mind's Eye - O.S.T. (Audio CD)
Thomas Dolby goes back to the production booth cranking out another album for something other than himself. As he did with the musical score for the movie GOTHIC, Dolby produces an album for a new medium, this being a computer game. THE GATE TO THE MIND'S EYE is a game that I cannot say that I have played, but the soundtrack for it stands on its own as a great piece of Dolby's work. He brings in the wonderfully beautiful and talented astrophysicist Dr. Fiorella Terenzi to assist with the vocals on this album with the lead in N.E.O. and Quantum Mechanic. The tone of this album has a futuristic feel to it, but not too much utopia or dark feeling to it. A blend of the two, creating an atmosphere that can sound a little pop and yet maintaining a style that is classic Dolby. Fans of THE GOLDEN AGE OF WIRELESS will notice that Dolby doesn't follow the "She Blinded Me With Science" genre, but develops that album in many ways. The same holds true with this one,! ! its very diverse but still has a central feeling from this composer. His musical style shines through and keeps you wanting for more, which he obliges with other albums from the FLAT EARTH house.
