The Art of Noise - The Seduction of Claude Debussy (1999) Retail CD
This is an album that has rarely left my CD players since I purchased it four years ago. It's one of those rare releases that makes you want to force people to listen to it, because you know damn well they'll never encounter it otherwise, and you know that they'll be missing out on something truly extraordinary.On the face of it, this should be a total mess. Jungle rhythms, motifs from Claude Debussy, rap provided by Rakim, vocals from Sally Bradshaw, Donna Lewis and Carol Kenyon, and narration provided by the unmistakeable John Hurt.Miraculously though, with the possible exception of "La Flûmore…te de Pan", it all seems to gel as though Jungle, Rap, Opera and turn of the century French Classical music should always be played together.Particular highlights of this album include the opening track "Il Pleure [At The Turn Of The Century]", and the monumental "The Holy Egoism Of Genius". Listen towards the end of this track for a vicious turn of mood to match John Hurts' narration.Also, listen out at the end of "Approximate Mood Swing No: 2" for a snatch of "Moments In Love"
