Assembly is the title of an 18-track compilation album by British recording artist John Foxx, issued in 1992. It contains tracks from the artist's first four albums – Metamatic, The Garden, The Golden Section and In Mysterious Ways as well as tracks which had not been previously issued in an album format. The album was remastered for CD by Foxx himself, and although was the first time many of his solo tracks had appeared on CD there were no new tracks and none of the tracks remain exclusive to this release.[1]

The sleeve of "Assembly" features one of Foxx's Cathedral Oceans images, although in 1993, none of the music from that project had yet been made available. The CD booklet contains sleeve notes written by John Foxx himself where he describes each phase of his work over the eighties.
