Album Review

The place for Art of Noise neophytes to start, Daft collects (Who's Afraid Of?) The Art of Noise! and Into Battle with the Art of Noise, along with two reworkings of "Moments in Love" from the original U.K. release of that song, to make a fantastic hour's worth of music. If anything, a single or two aside, Daft beats out the official Best Of compilation by a mile. Having aged superbly with time, AON's early works sound all the more advanced and of the moment, a testament especially to Trevor Horn's excellent production and Anne Dudley's gripping arrangements. Further entertainment comes from the liner notes, which aren't merely state-of-the-art 1984 album design but an apparently barbed attack on the further incarnation of the band from one Otto Flake. The exact seriousness of this is up to the reader. As for the "Moments in Love" versions, both are gentler and more elegant than the already lush original, and none the worse for that, though "(Three Fingers Of) Love" does have rather disconcerting sound effects added to it.

Art of Noise

From the time I heard this, I was blown away, the Whole Album is Great, I've been listening for over 10 Years, These White Boys rock this for real.

Underground original

Anybody into techno or trance today should have this on their library. Being from the 80's when this came out, was different from rap and such. Love metal to classical but this album hits home with me every time . Will please with simplicity as a forefront to techno and stuff. Underrated by many but was WAY ahead of the curve! try to understand and you will.

Love or "moments in love"

This song is played before every "quiet storm" radio segment in the U.S. I've been searching for it for years and finally found it....I see other people looking for it too. Great song

Anne Dudley, Gary Langan, and Paul Morley were members of producer Trevor Horn's in-house studio band in the early '80s before they formed the Art of Noise, a techno-pop group whose music was an amalgam of studio gimmickry, tape splicing, and synthesized beats. The Art of Noise took material from a variety of sources: hip-hop, rock, jazz, R&B, traditional pop, found sounds, and noise all worked their way into the group's distinctly postmodern soundscapes. Dudley was the center of the group, having...
