I haven't heard this album since I was about 12 years old, and at that time, I must have worn out two cassette versions of it; I loved it that much.
So many years later, I can vaguely remember hearing shorter versions, hence I can only assume they remixed or extended a few tunes to pad it out for the CD issue. In any event, it really doesn't matter, because even though I've branched out into a plethora of musical genres since then, I've found that this album still holds up, due to its extreme melodiousness.
The production and synths are dated, of course, but any hummable tune has to have some appeal to it, otherwise you'd forget it like that. And even though Dolby only scored his one major hit with 'She Blinded Me...' (and a minor one later on with 'Airhead'), there are no shortage of similarly solid songs on this album.
'Airwaves', 'Cloudburst at Shingle Street', 'Wind Power', are equally good, and the stately 'One of Our Submarines' (and my fave tune on the album, 'Flying North') is absolutely sublime.
It still holds up, boys, never fear.
