iTunes Editors’ Notes

After the suicide of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis the remaining members disbanded and quickly reformed as New Order, adding Gillian Gilbert on guitar and synths and immediately picking up where Joy Division had left off. Retaining the services of producer Martin Hannett for its 1981 debut album, Movement deeply referenced New Order’s haunted previous incarnation. The album begins with Bernard Sumner singing at his most pained, often hiding behind Hannett’s exotic production distortions. Tracks such as “Dreams Never End,” “Truth” and “Senses” immediately conjure up the sound of Joy Division, with icy guitars, robotic rhythms and ominous sound effects underscoring the band’s obsession with isolation and a bipolar world where square pegs seldom fit comfortably. The Collector’s Edition adds the essential early singles that introduced the band’s sound: “Ceremony,” “Temptation” and “Procession” are every bit as much of New Order’s origin story as the eight album cuts. Additionally, the inclusion of “Everything’s Gone Green” and alternate versions of “Ceremony” and “Temptation” make this an essential package of the band’s early days.

Customer Reviews

Excellent but defective collection.

This collector's edition of Movement perfectly captures New Order's transition as they rose from the ashes of Joy Division to develop the signature sound they were later known for. This would indeed be a great collection to have where it not for the defects. Yes, defects! NewOrderonline has confirmed that there are several glitches (300 and counting) that can be heard throughout each re-released album. The band and London records are working on re-mastering all the CD's and Rhino Records will release them in 2009. Buy this collection now if you want to hear pops and channel skips on several songs or wait until the collections are released again in 2009.

Regarding "Ceremony:"

The 'Alternate' version of "Ceremony" is actually the original and superior recording of the Joy Division song. The differences between this original version and the subsequent rerecorded version are substantial. Per Wiki: 'The original has a more "Joy Division sound", with throbbing bass, distorted guitar, spacey vocals, and solid drums also contributing a wash of cymbals. In the rerecording the bass is diminished, cymbals restrained, and the vocals are "drier".' The rerecording isn't exactly bad, but it conveys little of the power and emotion of the original. If you haven't heard it, now is your opportunity.

Temptation(alt 12"version)

Oh you've got green eyes.I've been waiting for this forever.Best New Order track ever.

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...
