ARS EST CELARE ARTEM

An Art Of Noise Production.

Contradicting written-by credits. The cover credits Anne Dudley & J.J. Jeczalik for writing all tracks (see global credits) while the center labels are more specific for each individual track (see Extra Artist credits).

There are three nearly-identical editions of this LP:
1. This original release, with no Walter Schumann credit on bottom left corner of sleeve reverse.
2. The Art Of Noise - In No Sense? Nonsense! a promo edition of #1, with For Promotional Use Only on its labels, and a gold-stamped sleeve.
3. The Art Of Noise - In No Sense? Nonsense! an updated release with Walter Schumann credit on sleeve.

Many of the album's tracks are seamlessly segued; ambient soundscapes blend into percussive rhythms, dramatic buildups, melodic string arrangements, and vocal choruses and chants.

An audiophile experience. I hold 1st US Pressing and it sound fantastic! if reissues will sound like this nowadays, it'll be fair to buy them instead of looking for expensive originals. No wonder the AON do not need to reissue their material, their albums sound perfect AND they can be found for cheap.
