  • Summary: The fifth album for Martin Dosh was named after his friend Tom Cesario, who had died two years ago.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 8 out of 11
  2. Negative: 0 out of 11
  1. Tommy doesn’t aim to dazzle like 2008’s Wolves And Wishes or 2006’s The Lost Take; instead, it focuses all its tech-wizardry on some of the most vulnerable, exultant melodies Dosh has captured yet.
  2. Tommy sounds like it has been carefully scored, but chances are Dosh created all this in his head. There are so many perfect moments.
  3. It’s certainly going to be one of the most, if not the most, fresh sounding electronic albums of the year and it’s only going to get better as time passes.
  4. [Iit is] a rambling, sweet-and-savory aural feast. [Spring 2010, p.69]
  5. This is Dosh taking a step back, slowing down, freaking out a little (check the snarling ending of album finale “Gare de Lyon”), and making the most personal music of his career.
  6. Dosh has indeed graduated from the sketchbook-like arrangements that marked his earlier work-- but Tommy's occasional tedium is a reminder that there's nothing wrong with doodling in the margins, either.
  7. His fifth album is typically protean. [May 2010, p.118]
