Daft is the perfect album for those interested in the Art Of Noise's early days (and arguably at the peak of their invention). Basically an amalgamation of "(Who's Afraid Of) The Art Of Noise" and "Into Battle With" (their debut EP) Daft is an awesome collection of noise.
The stunningly beautiful track "Moments In Love" also benefits from two remixes (including the slightly disturbing "(Three Fingers Of) Love" complete with pre-orgasmic groans).
Together with the slightly bitter 'review' from one 'Otto Flake' (this collection was released after Anne Dudley and co. had left ZTT and gone on to poppier grounds with China Records) this is a fantastic snapshot of a band at the height of their prowess.
For a complete change of direction, check out "The Seduction of Claude Debussy"

For a very eccentric and English take on the sequencer and sampler this is THE SEMINAL piece of electronic music production (made when 'lemon jelly' was only a feature of children's parties). If quirk is your bag -- if for example you're the kind of chap or chapess who wonders what it would have been like if Dre or the Neptunes had in some parallel dimension been Nietzsche quoting country squires with an interest in scenic picnics and equestrian sports -- then simply send nine pounds to those awfully nice people at Amazon and prepare yourself for an absolute revelation.
What can you expect in the way of musical moments for your money?
My particular faves...
Track 3, 'Beatbox' (Diversion 1) - Musical sketches involving tennis, underwater autopan antics and tacky trumpet fanfares over implausibly humungouse 80's drum beat.
Track 4, 'Army now' - W.W.II big band music abducted by aliens masquerading as the Beverly sisters.
Track 5, 'Donna': Eastern European SW radio music; low-fi throbbing of a most pleasing nature.
Track 8, 'Realization': Sharp organ figures like shards of golden light cutting through fuzzy brown arpeggios; like a lemon sorbet on a cold clear morning in a muddy grave yard.
Track 10, 'Moments in love': Love and a spanner! Clanging metal, subtle breathy pants and a hint of medieval plain song. Ableard sends his Heloise an e-mail.
Track 14, 'Snapshot': The cheapest casio gadget you can imagine sampled into a hideously expensive state of the art 1983 fairlight makes for happy pop ditty. Last heard sampled on TLC's 'Fan Mail' Album.
15. Close (to the edit) - Dodgy starter motor fires up rock'n'roll double bass riff, resulting in punk like shouts of 'hey!' and a poetic desire to 'be in England in the summer time with my love'.

This is one of the best albums by (The) Art of Noise and this SACD release gives the album full justice. Now, we can feel Anne Dudley's footsteps walking through "Memento". And "Moments In Love" has never sounded better (except for Anne Dudley's version on "A Different Light").

If you have an SACD player, this is a far superior recording than the standard CD version.

What happens when a bunch of classically trained musicians are let loose on a Fairlight CMI?
The stuff on this album is as old I am, and although it's definitely of the 1980s, it's got that timeless feel to it. Daft presents the sublime * Love series (a favourite background for chillout radio programmes that never gets the proper playback or acknowledement it deserves); Beat Box (Diversion 1), which Krypton Factor fans would find familiar; and of course, Close (To The Edit) with its playful use of "dum" and a starter motor. Yes, these guys sample anything and everything: a ruler on the table in Who's Afraid (Of The Art Of Noise); Stravinsky-esq hits and dying gasps in Flesh In Armour and How To Kill, respectively; and US psyops broadcasts from the Grenada invasion in A Time For Fear (Who's Afraid).
The inlay notes are typical ZTT (i.e., nuts --- c.f. The Seduction of Claude Debussy and Propaganda's A Secret Wish), dominated by an essay ('one bloody opinion') written by one Otto Flake explaining where the whole Art Of Noise concept came from, and what a shame it was that they abandoned Horn and Morely 'to pursue a conventional rock career'.
So what of those musicians? They make wacky, interesting music (or 'noise shots', as the album refers to it). And this is a nice album --- something of a lesson in electronic music. If you're not up for a lesson, it's still a fun listen. If you're not into fun, it's quirky and unique. Like it says on the back of the case, 'be happy or die'.

Tonal quality is pretty good for 'sampling' style recording, but maybe the master tapes were only 8 tracks and this surround mix is not discrete - as I would have liked - just ambience. This could have been a showpiece 5.1 mix with sounds flying around, but sadly it isn't.
