iTunes Review

Twenty years after Movement, New Order marched into the 21st century with renewal on their minds once again. It had been eight years since Republic, an album fraught with turmoil, but they sound reinvigorated on the optimistic "Turn My Way" and the lean "Vicious Streak." Dark and driving, "Primitive Notion" wouldn't have been out of place on Brotherhood, but subtle electronic touches on songs like "Slow Jam" and "Someone Like You" prove that they're too interested in the future to get hung up on the past.

Come-from-behind victory

This has got to be one of the great comeback albums ever produced. Years after New Order appeared to have drifted past their prime, they came out with this electrifying recording of fantastic pop songs that may have been the best record of 2001. It's pure New Order but effortlessly incorporates the sound of the early 00's, and some surprising overtones of old British post-punk guitar classics (listen to "60 Miles an Hour" for the echoes of The Clash's "Train in Vain"). The band creates a wall of sound almost unlike any other, particularly on the centerpiece track "Primitive Notion", where classic New Order bass lines duel with roaring guitars, chattering drums and a massive synthesizer to send the listener hurtling through space head-first. The whole production is capped off with clever lyrics ("the sea was getting rough / it made me feel sick / but I like that kind of stuff / it beats arithmetic") that will keep you happily singing along for years. Good stuff.

The Evolution of New Order

While officially the 90's was a state of limbo for New Order, it was also a time of expansion and creativity for the disbanded quartet. Hooky was involved in acts like "Revenge" and "Monaco". Gilbert and Morris were "The Other Two". But perhaps the most influential was when Bernard Sumner teamed up with Johnny Marr to form "Electronic", whose 1999 album "Twisted Tenderness" is the main influence for the album you are viewing now.

This album is an amazing reinvention that combines modern alternative rock with some of New Order's familiar elements to create one of the best records of the early 2000's. Why such a spectacular and ferocious album is so overlooked is beyond me. Every track is intricately unique, from the heart-pounding "Crystal", to the techno throbbing of "Someone Like You", and the slow electronic groove of "Vicious Streak", to the lighthearted acoustic closer "Run Wild". I can almost guarantee you that you will enjoy every second of this epic collection of sonic masterworks from start to finish.

A more rockin New Order and it

Whether making New Wave electronic music or sizzling Rock, New Order has an amazing sound that is unique to only themselves. This album is more rockin effort than past albums and it paid off. The slow but beautiful "Run Wild" is one of my all time favorite songs. "Crystal" is simply incredible and is one of New Orders best songs ever. "Slow Jam" and "60 Miles an Hour" has Bernard's excellent guitar playing with Hook's trade-sound base lines. There's still a couple of songs that have the Electronic-dance side of NO (like "Someone like You") but the others are the jewels of the album. I'm writing this years after I bought the album, and it still hits my IPOD often. One of New Orders best.

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...
