9/10 mfox4000 Customer review, 6th March 2014
If you want an album made up of mostly found-sounds, biting commentaries on american politics, and tv snippets; topped off with it's own fake tennage murderer news scandel then good luck finding one better than Escape From Noise. Any modern day plunderphonics monkey worth his salt from The Avalanches through to Girl Talk owes a lot to Negativland and this album in particular as the "hit single" Christianity Is Stupid helped propel them to Avant Garde super stardom back in 1987, bringing with it a wave of interest to experimental music. Even more fame - and lawsuits - followed in 1991 thanks to a certain self-important Irish singer and his lack of a sense of humour over their classic EP, "U2". If you want to spend all your money tracking down a copy of U2, then go ahead. If you're a little more sane then buy this copy of Escape From Noise and join the cult of Negativland fans. Don't worry we're a nice cult. Really.
