As part of the ZTT (Zang Tumm Tumm) record label stable, Art Of Noise pioneered new sounds in the mid-1980s and were largely responsible of the regulation "big drum sound" every hit song had to have at the time. Over these two CDs, you will find most of the hit singles by Art Of Noise and then some. Of said hits, two or three pass the test of time: Close To The Edit, Moments In Love - though the version(s) of that last track here are not the best - and Peter Gunn. Alas, most of the non hit tracks are not that indispensable. At the end of the day, a one CD compilation of the singles is a better choice for the casual listener and this compilation is probably strictly for fans.
