In my opinion, there is only one tune that really stands out on this great CD. No song has ever touched me the way "Moments In Love" did. It will forever remain my #1 song of all-time. It was the first tune that I heard that I instantly fell in love with, and introduced me to the wonderful world of electronic dance music, permanently. It is one of the most beautiful love songs ever, and I love every second of it. Unfortunately, it did not do well commercially, but it did give rise to the new genre of music to come, chillout.

There are other great hits of Art Of Noise on here - their commercially successfull "Close (To The Edit)", and "Beat Box", an underground favourite with a real strong beat.

So, who's "Afraid of Art Of Noise"? Well, it is anyone who has never heard their music. Art Of Noise did a lot to shape dance music of U.K. in the 1980s.
