Album: The Flat Earth
. . .
Thomas Dolby’s follow-up to the surprise smash The Golden Age of Wireless, 1984’s The Flat Earth, went two directions at once. While the album itself was more calm and measured and musically diverse, the lead single, “Hyperactive!” doubled and even tripled down on the quirkiness and funk of “She Blinded Me With Science,” to the point where if you could pass it off as a great lost Fishbone single.
