Get the Message - The Best of Electronic

Reseña de álbum

When New Order's Bernard Sumner joined the Smiths' Johnny Marr to form Electronic in 1989, some called it a dream collaboration. Marr's gifted guitar work made him a star musician on top of making the Smiths one of the greatest bands to emerge from post-punk. Sumner and his coolly boyish vocals stepped up to fill the shoes of his old friend, the late Ian Curtis, upon the end of Joy Division in 1980. New Order and the Smiths were two bands that matched one another in appeal and importance. Both groups also defined what would be known as alternative rock, so Marr and Sumner coming together just made sense. Get the Message: The Best of Electronic is a definitive look at how the super duo succeeded in making cohesive and appealing dance-rock and became one of the greatest alt-rock bands. All three albums — 1991's self-titled masterpiece, 1996's Raise the Pressue, and their 1999 hidden treasure, Twisted Tenderness — are represented throughout along with an assortment of outtakes and remixes. Their various collaborations, including their very memorable work done with the Pet Shop Boys' Neil Tennant, cannot be forgotten, either. Their U.K. Top 20 hit "Getting Away with It," the fluid acoustic guitars of "Get the Message," and the previously unavailable single mix of "Disappointed," all of which feature Tennant on vocals, remain timeless standouts for Electronic. Other highlights include the sexy synth beats of "Imitation of Life" (B-side to "Forbidden City") and "All That I Need" (B-side to the Karl Bartos-penned hit from Raise the Pressure's "For You"). With Rhino's meticulous selection of tracks, Get the Message is definitely one of those collections tailored for both longtime fans who already own everything and for new fans seeking a great prelude.

UK's Post-Punk Supergroup

Consisting of integral members of three of Great Britain's greatest bands, Bernard Sumner (Joy Division and New Order) and Johnny Marr (The Smiths), Electronic burst onto the scene in 1989. Their debut single, "Getting Away With It" (with Pet Shop Boys' Neil Tennant) was a smash in the UK and a respectable hit in the US. "Get the Message" collects all of Electronic's greatest singles from their three albums, "Electronic," "Raise the Pressure," and "Twisted Tenderness." All of the tracks are remastered. Single versions of "Get the Message,""Vivid, and "Late at Night" are included, as is the track "Disappointed" (also with Neil Tennant) which was previously available on the "Cool World" soundtrack, and "Imitation of Life," the B-side of "Forbidden City." Standout tracks include "Vivid," "Second Nature," "Forbidden City," and "Twisted Tenderness. Sadly missing are "Patience of a Saint" and "Dark Angel." A must own for New Order and Pet Shop Boys fans.

Excellent collection, as an introduction...

For the collector of all that is New Order, this collection offers little, unless you missed out on some of the b-sides, you get a couple here: All That I Need" and "Imitation of Life." Unfortunately, these and many other tracks are edited/single versions which makes for a letdown, but for those who did not buy any of the Electronic cds, this is a great introduction. Next, hunt down "Twisted Tenderness" one of the BEST New Order related discs ever. Of course, "Electronic" and "Raise The Pressure" are also worthy of owning, and in that order. If you love New Order, and Johnny Marr, you'll love this cd!

Be Careful

Not much to say other than any Greatest Hits by Electronic can't be that great if it doesn't include "Tighten Up".
