Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In 1993, it looked as if electro-pop's greatest band, one of the most influential and acclaimed artists of the era, had broken up. But now New Order is back with Get Ready, its first album since the Top 15 Republic, the band's third straight gold or platinum disc. More rockin' and guitar-oriented than previous albums, Get Ready is one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Set up by a major marketing campaign, fans are ready for Get Ready.

Amazon.com

New Order is a member of an elite group of long-standing bands whose sound remains innovative, despite a nearly unchanged musical direction. No one touches Peter Hook's warm, startlingly melodic basslines or Bernard Sumner's slightly unsure but instantly recognizable singing. Get Ready is a classic New Order album with a few twists. Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan (who no doubt hero-worshipped the band, like most angst-ridden alterna-youth of his generation) is invited for a guest appearance on "Turn My Way," and Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie aids New Order in producing the dirty, Stones-ripping tune "Rock the Shack," an imitation of Scream's 1994 single, "Rocks." Fans might be taken aback by the disc's occasional sophomoric lyrics, but given the band's standard for poetic prowess, it may be safe to assume that lyrics like "Here comes love/it's like honey/you can't buy/it with money" are tongue-in-cheek. The CD is bookended with its best songs: "Crystal" is one of their finest singles ever, layered with synthesized rhythm tracks and a beautiful interplay between Sumner and a backing female vocal, and "Run Wild" is a tastefully lush ballad that summons those painful and glorious emotions that somehow are unique to the band's music. Few rock groups that equally utilize keyboards and guitars have survived the post-Nirvana shakeout, but Get Ready is further testimony that while trends and musical movements come and go, New Order will always matter. --Beth Massa

Even in my biased opinion, I have maintain some sort of objectivity. I believe that New Order is one of the most influential bands to ever strum a guitar, and well, that sort of brilliance is certainly hard at work again on this, their first studio work since 1993's mediocre (save "Regret") Republic.
The first track and single, "Crystal" is obviously the highlight of the album. The driving layers of synthesizers with the soaring melody of Hook's bass immediately adds this gem into the canon of classics. The next track, "60 MPH", which is coincedentally the second single is equally stunning, an instantly hummable modern rock song that will have its stinging chorus etched into your consciousness like a lawn dart.
The album turns more into an introspective and reflective mood after the singles, and while the individual tracks are not as spectacular, they form a wonderful atmosphere of strong beats, throbbing basslines and magnificent strings, achieving a surrealness that reminds this review of "Mr. Disco" from Technique - a monolith of wonderful creations, stuffed to the breaking point with bits of rock and dance.
The most poignant moment comes at the end with the wonderful "Run Wild". An acoustic number with Barney sounding as real as he's ever sounded, New Order finishes their album triumphantly with a tune that begs you to go back to "Crystal" and start the process all over.

After an eight year hiatus, New Order arrive alive at mid-forty something, going on twenty. GET READY is New Order's garage album. Gone are the signature, cathedral synth sounds, replaced by stripped down guitars. No milk toast here. Sounding somewhat juvenile and naive, you'd wonder if they'd done this type of thing before, then remember Joy Division. The immediacy of pithy guitars, swaggering, lugubrious bass, deliberate, sonic, drumbeats, and sparse, airy keyboards echo a past. All underlined by the innocent school boy eternal vocals and lyrics. Polar opposites in collusion - UNKNOWN PLEASURES meets BROTHERHOOD. If an enigma is truly wrapped in a riddle, then New Order remain a mystery, mostly to themselves. Although they don't strike any new ground, the musical material presented here sounds remarkably fresh, frisky, and alive. Cuts "60 MPH", "Run Wild", "Slow Jam", and "Someone Like You" loom as classic standouts. It's rumored that given time you can reinvent anything, including yourself. New Order, being proponents, serve notice with this current incarnation. Although Gillian Gilbert is noticealby absent, the remaining members have crafted a very solid, listenable album, deserving of many repeated plays. GET READY can take it's place in New Order's illustrious musical history with honor. The legacy is intact. Issue the medals, break out the rewards. Rediscover them.

It was certainly well worth the wait for a new album by one of my favorite synth-pop bands from the '80s. This album definitely is certainly one of best albums that came out of 2001. For me the highlight tracks on this album was "Crystal", "Turn My Way", "Run Wild" and "60 Miles an Hour". I love how the band finishes the album with the acoustic track "Run Wild" after listening to a mostly rock driven album. I'm not a huge Billy Corgan fan but the track he contributed "Turn My Way" is by far one of the best songs I've heard from New Order". That song would have sounded completely different without Billy Corgan's unintentional impression of an angry Big Bird. "Crystal" is a 6 minute epic that kicks off this great album. Originally I didn't care for "Crystal" but that was based on the few seconds I heard of the song. After hearing it in its entirety, it didn't take very long for me to love the first single of "Get Ready". While I do think this album has more of a rock edge and has less synth-pop edge, I still hear the traditional sounds of New Order. "Get Ready" is destined to be a classic like "Substance" and "Republic" (to some people.

I'm not a huge fan of New Order, just have their "best of" cd's mostly. All I can say is, this is a really good, consistent, and thoroughly enjoyable musical experience. The songs have a less electronic sound to it than "Republic" or "Technique". In fact, most of the songs seem to harken back to their really early 80's, less heavily-synthesized sound. The songs also have a surprising energy to it, as if they were made by an up'n coming alternative band and not a decades-old veteran band. In other words, none of that watered-down, commercial-sounding, "established" band blandness(which is a really nice bonus imo). Overall, they sound like the New Order of old, but with just enough freshness and energy to make it sound inviting for today's audiences. If you don't go in expecting, or hoping for, a bunch of "Blue Monday"-type songs or an emphasis on electronic/synthpop songs, you'll be fine. Great for repeated listenings. Personal faves: Crystal, 60 Miles an Hour, Turn My Way(with Billy Corgan), Primitive Notion, Slow Jam( i like the chorus), Rock the Shack(certifiable foot stomper), & Run Wild(most beautiful song on cd imo). And if you like this cd, get their 2k5 release for a similar audio experience.
