  1. Daft

    Daft is a compilation collecting Art of Noise LP Who's Afraid of the Art Of Noise?, along with portions of the Into Battle with the Art of Noise EP and "Moments in Love" remix single. It gives a fairly thorough overview of the Trevor Horn period of the group, prior to its split from the ZTT label. The compilation is also notable for its amusingly venomous liner notes by Paul Morley, attacking the new incarnation of the group. In 2003 the album was re-released on Super Audio CD.
