REVIEWS

Art of Noise’s first ever sonic salvo (1983), a 12" EP featuring seven tracks (and including the dreamy beat ballad Moments In Love) still sounds subversive and radical today. What makes this first ever reissue truly exciting is the presence of the group’s aborted first album, Worship, which has remained locked in the ZTT vaults until now. It contains Close (To The Edit), a surprising Top 10 hit in 1984, which prompted Worship and its tenbrous sound collages to be shelved in favour of a more digestible reconfigured version, but was eventually released as Who’s Afraid Of The Art Of Noise?
