Editors’ Notes

Over the years, many elements of New Order’s sound have remained the same — Peter Hook’s deeply twanging bass, the knowingly plaintive vocals of Bernard Sumner, the washes of guitar and synthesizer that do more than anything else to define the band sonically — and it’s so on Waiting for the Sirens’ Call. That is to say, the few who aren’t already converts to their Velvet Underground-meets-Giorgio Moroder sound-clash will be seduced by this modest tweak on the basics. Most others, though, should find their continued interest rewarded by another helping of Sumner’s droll, underrated lyrics; they might even be surprised by touches like the dancehall borrowings on “I Told You So.” The set doesn’t quite match 2001’s comeback Get Ready, but it fits nicely into this important group’s discography.

Customer Reviews

On Top of Their Game

This album has far surpassed all expectations and belongs in place along side of all their best works. It is one of those albums that you will love start to finish from the first listen. Its also one of those albums that is worth buying as there is more than just a good single. That description fits most of No's work but is especially true with this outing. If you love New Order then you will love this album, end of story. They have matured in their sound and songwriting, bringing you all you have loved and more. If you haven't been a fan in the past this album will make you one. Enjoy.

Really good

Overall, another solid album by New Order. Among the best tracks are "Guilt Is a Useless Emotion", "Krafty", "Morning Night and Day, and "Hey Now What You Doing". There is enough good work on this album to forgive them for the catchy but stupid "Jetstream".

The waiting is over.

With the 2001 disapoitment of 'Get Ready', New Order is back with a CD that is well produced like 'Technique' but raw sounding like 'Movement' at the same time. 'Moring Night and Day' and 'Working Overtime' rock!

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...
