Reviews: Art Of Noise: Daft

Reviews: 1

Review by Francey December 18, 2004 (9 of 9 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
I think I own about every version of this album that was ever released, from the first Art of Noise EP "Into battle" (featured almost completely on "Daft") which I bought on vinyl when it came out till the 20th anniversary CD on Repertoire that came with a DVD with some of AON's groundbreaking videos early 2004.

"Daft" is my 2nd SACD and although I thought I knew every little "boing", "duh" and other sound effect on the album, it surprised me what a difference the additional channels make. The music is litteraly all around you, the effects come from everywhere and if you close your eyes the album is like a roller coaster ride.

"Close (to the Edit)" and "Beat Box" are still the stand-out tracks, "Moments in Love" is still the only AON track in the entire AON catalogue that sounds outdated, but what a wonderful edition the SACD version is.

Blessed are the noisemakers.
