No Comment is a 1984 Front 242 album released on the Another Side music label. The album was the first reference to Electronic Body Music (EBM) [1] when the band included the phrase "Electronic Body Music Composed And Produced On Eight Tracks By Front 242" in reference to their use of an 8-track recording device. Though the album was their second full-length album, the Belgian band had released several singles and EPs prior to No Comment. The clip of dialogue featured in the track "Special Forces" is from the movie Apocalypse Now.
