5.0 out of 5 stars THE LAST REAL ART OF NOISE ALBUM 8 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album was a departure from their previous albums, it was more laid back and included some experimental African-style music too. This was the last real Art of Noise album before J.J. Jeczalik and Anne Dudley called it a day. This version includes 2 bonus tracks "Robinson Crusoe" and "The James Bond Theme". A nice album to chill out with. This album was a nice end to the Art of Noise legacy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Art Of Noise's only disappointing album 16 May 2007
By Mr. Stuart Bruce TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
"Below The Waste" has to be singled out as the Art Of Noise's only disappointing album. It lacks the originality and spirit of their previous albums "In No Sense? Nonsense!" and "In Visible Silence", and after it was released AON effectively 'gave up' until their brilliant 1999 comeback concept album "The Seduction Of Claude Debussy", for which original AON founding member and sample guru J.J. Jeczalik didn't return.

That said, it does have its moments. Anne Dudley has a wonderful orchestral touch, such as on the brilliant "Island" or their cover of "Robinson Crusoe". "Spit" is really good and harks back to Art Of Noise's earlier material. The 'hit single' from this album was "Yebo" featuring Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens, which is pretty strong though not outstanding. (As an aside, "Yebo" was remixed some years later by Arkarna, so it's possible you may have heard the remix but not the original version).

However tracks like their cover of "The James Bond Theme", which should have been great but ends up lifeless, bring it down, and the album doesn't really flow from beginning to end. It sounds like a collection of leftovers from the end of a band's time. Interesting to fans, but buy any other Art Of Noise album, in fact buy all the others, before you buy this.
