I can't believe how under-rated this album is. The Art of Noise are more famous for stuff like Close (To the Edit) and Kiss, but this really is an amazing entire Album. The string piece Debut is genuinely haunting, and E.F.L. is an amazing monster of a track. Ode to Don Jose is beautiful, as is Crusoe and One Earth... There is just too much here! The noodlings in between could irritate some, but in the iTunes age it is really great to hear an album that winds around itself and manages not to slide apart into handy downloadable chunks, while still containing self-contained masterpieces.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Little Less Noise, A Little More Music 26 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
Once again noise is reshaped and molded into musical sounds. This album has more musical overtones than previous ones, but there is still enough noise to sustain the wierdness. Favorite tracks: Dragnet, Fin Du Temps, Opus For Four, Debut, E.F.L., Crusoe, One Earth.

3.0 out of 5 stars I might be a little picky but... 29 Jun 2005
By M. Flasher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I had this album (cassette) back in the late 80's and loved it! It was so different and so musical that I could listen to it for hours. Being a musical nut, I loved hearing all the noises, ambient sound, etc that the AON could put into a song. When I found this CD here a few weeks ago I jumped at the chance to own it because of one specific song that was on it. Well I had to give it 3 out of 5 stars only because the CD has been edited at one part...a part that really made that song work. My favorite track on this album is "Day at the Races". I loved the effect of the drums, ambient sounds from the horse track (announcer, horses, etc), and the overall tempo, but the intro to the song was edited (completely deleted) from the original version. So instead of hearing these sounds (horse trainers, horses, doors, sounds of the track as the horses were being loaded into the starting gate, etc) the song just "starts". There is no work-up to the song to allow you to greatly appreciate the effort that the AON put in to making this song, If you had have ever heard the original you would understand. The wierd thing is that ALL other ambient noise between each song is still there (even after this specific song) but just not the intro.

Like I said, may be picky but I was really disappointed after hearing this cut.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the lost albums 8 Aug 2001
By "zwouth" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Art of Noise (or "The Art of Noise" for these older albums) has shown a great many faces in their style of music. Of AON's older "style", this and "In Visible Silence" are probably the best representives. Definitly recommended for AON fans, (and an exquisite intro for those joining)
Many songs are listenable and enjoyable from the start, but others might tend to grate on your ears after repeated listening.
Highlights: Opus for Four (unlike Opus 4 on IVS, which will slowly make you insane =) Dragnet (if you were any fan of "Peter Gunn" from IVS) Crusoe is also somewhat unique to this album.
Beware though, as all following AON offerings don't really match these two. Also, good luck finding these; as in= you won't =(
Probably 2nd behind "In Visible Silence". If you find any of these new, BUY IT. Worse case, if you don't like it, you could probably resell for a small fortune.
The dream re-release would be a 2 CD set with this
and In Visible Silence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just noise 19 Jun 2003
By JC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is definitely AON's best work...sure none of their greatest singles came from this albulm...but I get the feeling that this was a sparse recording and it is unique because the 16 tracks work well as one piece of music...I would compare it to Kate Bush's B-side of "Hounds of Love"...both were albulms that were not possible without the infamous "fairlight", and because of the fairlight, these artists' imaginations ran completely wild in the eighties. Personally, this albulm is one of my favorite albulms of all time, due to an unusual dream I had with the music intro of "Opus for Four" playing. The other reason is for it's balanced various styles of Art of Noise's work: Those classic ambient style mooders like "Opus for Four" and "Ode to Don Jose" and their other style which is a more cold funk 'big beat' dance eighties rhythm (which was picked up by early electro and rap music)in tracks like "A Day at The Races" and "Roundabout 727". AON even uses the concept of 'reprise' very well by just changing the title of a track for later in the set (but not actually changing the song) which gives off a different feeling of the track (ie: "Galleons of Stone", "Ransom on the Sand). I've read that Enigma was inspired by the Art of Noise...and I believe this is the albulm that must have inspired him the most...you can hear the similarities if you listen to any of his albulms and then "In No Sense? Nonsense!" Anne Dudley and company were by far, creating the sound of the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weird, yes, but never BORING! 3 May 2004
By Todd A. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the third album in the Art Of Noise discography and it continues in their fine tradition of taking everyday sounds and setting them to music ("E.F.I." features airplane engine sounds). Also, there is the theme from "Dragnet". The version here is the T.V. theme, given a funkified work-up. They later did a more danceable version for the Tom Hanks/Dan Aykroyd movie.
Being a longtime fan of AON, I am surprised that they never caught on here in the states like some of their contemporaries (Yello, who did "Oh Yeah" and Enigma, known for "Sadeness, Pt.1")
So, if you are tired of the pop tunes as of late and you want something that will make you reach for the repeat button, then this is the "Nonsense" you're looking for!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it then and love it now... 22 Jan 2005
By Tristan K. Braun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Got this in *yikes* the 80's (on cassette!) when it was something I remember as strange, different and very very good. I remember stopping and being entranced by the way they used noise to make music... In recent review, it still strikes me as very very good and as this was my first introduction to the group then and I still feel its excellent I would say its a definite first to begin with if you are thinking of really sampling the Art of Noise...
