Art of Noise 's first full album, Who's Afraid Of? The Art of Noise! Rarely has something aiming for modern pop status also sought to destroy and disturb so effectively. The most legendary song is still "Close To the Edit ," benefiting not merely from the innovative video but from its strong funk groove and nutty sense of humor in the mostly lyric-less vocals, not to mention the "hey! They're just two highlights on this prescient release, though. Part of the thrill of Who's Afraid is the sense of juxtaposition and playing around, something still not very common in music and even less so in the pop music genre.
The blunt political protest of "A Time for Fear Who's Afraid " and the more abstract "How to Kill," achieved via appropriate sampling, slams right up against the rough beat sonics and serene orchestration. If such material had appeared on Rephlex or even DHR in the Beat Box (Diversion One) - The Art Of Noise - (Whos Afraid Of?) The Art Of Noise! to late '90s, few would have been surprised. Things aren't all dour and gloomy, though; "Beat Box" captures heavy grooves from said source with quirky vocal bits and soft vibes.
Patented Trevor Horn orchestral stabs surface throughout, while Anne Dudley 's knack for gentler shadings and dramatic arrangements also Sky - Psihomodo Pop - Live In Amsterdam through clearly, something that would surface ever more strongly in her freelance production career.
