Although some will see this album in the former light, it seems to me that after having pioneered experimental pop in the Eighties, then going through a period of interesting, although less distinctive records, the Art of Noise here take a look at the 90's dance and ambient scenes, bring back their heavy hitters such as Trevor Horn and Anne Dudley, and.

Detached Playful Quirky Restrained Theatrical Witty. The Seduction of Claude Debussy. More than ten years after the Art of Noise left Trevor Horn's ZTT label to record on their own, original members Anne Dudley and Paul Morley reunited with Horn plus 10cc's Lol Creme to record another LP, organized around the work of French modernist composer Claude Debussy. With a guest list including John Hurt as well as Rakim, the album charts the artistic use of sampled breakbeats - pioneered by the Art of Noise themselves - with nods to '80s hip-hop plus their '90s equivalent, drum'n'bass.

[1:] Debussy dies. Long live Debussy! […] Cry if you have to. A song to begin with. Inspired by the languor that penetrated Paul Verlaine's heart.
[2:] What a life. And it began on a Sunday. […] On a Sunday afternoon and Debussy kept his eyes on his dream. One hundred years ago there were a hundred years to go.
[3:] He saw life in black and white. He heard music in colour. He thought love was a dream. […] He dreamt of music.
[4:] Debussy was surprised to find himself being asked by a journalist what his favourite colour was. […] As blue as I feel, he said.
[5:] All dreams are interrupted. […] Colour continues. Dreams recur. Art of Noise occur. Debussy thinks that the world is his idea. And why not ?
[6:] Baudelaire showed him directions and he found himself going in the same direction as the evening air. […] It seemed to him it smelt like paradise.
[7:] To be interpreted wisely and with some imagination. Inspired by the love and death of Charles Baudelaire, poet. […] And freedom did a twist inside my lungs with the stars that I had swallowed.
[8:] Art of Noise come right out with it and exclaim - genius exists, what with one thing and another. And another thing - Debussy exists. […] And the Art of Noise exist, to a point.
[9:] Come quickly, put the light out. […] A song about fellatio.
[10:] Debussy visits a disco, Rakim rants about alienation and/or alien life, Baudelaire loses his temper and Art of Noise love their machines. […] He thought, we are the invention of passion.
[11:] He made music for people in all kinds of moods. […] Then everything changed and the moon in June went on shining.
[12:] Art of Noise put their world of Debussy on hold … […] A song about remembering and expecting. As penultimate as it gets.
[13:] Remix and additional production […] at Studio Drum, Bristol. […] And so Debussy prepared for the future, because he could see right through it.
[14:] […] Colour this song by numbers 11 - green, 22 - red, 33 - blue, 44 - yellow, 55 - purple.
[15:] Claude Debussy reaches into the mind of Art of Noise. Art of Noise reach into the mind of Claude Debussy. […] A song about everything and nothing and the something that there is in between. And so on, ultimately speaking.
"I have often heard it expressed that music could not claim to convey anything with precision, as words or painting do. That is true to a certain extent, but it is not wholly true. Music conveys things in its own way and by means peculiar to itself. In music, and in painting, even in the written word, there is always a gap, to be bridged by the imagination of the hearer." - Charles Baudelaire
