Some great tracks here!!!

It's 100% New Order & NOT a collection of dodgy b-sides - but 8 great tracks, that will keep you happy & satisfied - till the next Depeche Mode album, at least!!!!

An insight into what could have been...

These tracks were due to be part of the follow up album to the 2005 release Waiting for the sirens call.

Although not the best collection of songs ever released by New Order a few of them are actually better than some released on WFTSC. Ill stay with you is a strong opener and could easily sit alongside New Orders best work since their 1998 reconciliation. Sugarcane is surprisingly good all be it a different direction for the band. Recoil doesn't really go anywhere and should be a b side at best. Californian Grass is a grower that again sees a different approach. From this point it does go downhill with a more stripped down version of Hellbent which does feel largely unfinished. Shake it up is lyrically terrible but retains a decent melody whilst I've got a feeling improves proceedings by being one of the best tracks here. The album ends with a different take on I told you so from WFTSC which wasn't one of the best tracks on that album so for me is largely pointless.

All in all there are glimpses here of waft the follow up to WFTSC could have been like or how different that particular album could have sounded. If your a New Order fan then there is enough material here to keep you interested for a good few listens and will probably be the last material recorded by Sumner, Hook and Morris as New Order. If your a casual listener or new to the band then I would recommend older releases before this.

Worthy of release!

As a lifelong fan, it's a hit with me. Yes, it's different from past albums, but I'd rather have evolving sounds and changes in style to listen to and enjoy…..and that are still underpinned by the definitive New Order signature sound. It's not Low life, Technique or Get Ready, etc. It's Lost Sirens. It's New Order evolving and I love it. This is from a fan who likes every song they ever produced, so I'm biased.

Biography

Formed: 1980 in Manchester, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Rising from the ashes of the legendary British post-punk unit Joy Division, the enigmatic New Order triumphed over tragedy to emerge as one of the most influential and acclaimed bands of the 1980s; embracing the electronic textures and disco rhythms of the underground club culture many years in advance of its contemporaries, the group's pioneering fusion of new wave aesthetics and dance music successfully bridged the gap between the two worlds, creating a distinctively thoughtful and oblique brand...
