Biography by Jason Ankeny

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 ...

4.0 out of 5 stars some perspective June 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is now 12 years old- a scary thought for those of us who were around for the original release! So disorienting to think that much time has passed...

Anyhow, I rate myself as "moderate" New Order fan. I am familiar with more than just the singles they played on the radio, but don't own everything they ever released. So please qualify my review under this premise.

This album continues to get slagged by the hardcore fans, as you will read. But, I'd like to remind everyone how much music changed from the late eighties to the early nineties. Some of New Order's peers in the New Wave/Postmodern movement were The Cure, Depeche Mode, and Erasure. Consider, then, how each of these groups' early-nineties releases differed from the preceding album(s). The Cure's quintessential album, 1989's Distintegration, was followed by Wish, an album that signaled a break with the past sound. Erasure released their Wild! album also in 1989, which was their most brilliant use of synthesizers, and a fan favorite. Then, they released Chorus in 1991, another cult favorite. But, in 1994, I Say, I Say, I Say came out, a dreamy album that was gorgeous, but not as anthemic as Wild! or Chorus. Finally, after the zenith of the 101 live album, Depeche Mode had chart-topping hits with Violator from 1990, another benchmark album. But, a couple of years later, they decided to go grunge with Songs of Faith and Devotion.

Maybe we were entering a new cosmic age, but the sonic landscape shifted, and we lost that classic vinyl sound from our favorite New Wave groups.

After buying the new album, Waiting for the Sirens' Call, I want to buy Technique again, which I only owned on cassette.

With 1989's TECHNIQUE, New Order had created their most commercially successful work yet, especially seeing as how most of their most famous songs from their previous albums were all big on the dance charts more than pop (it took until 1987's "True Faith" for New Order to crack the Hot 100). Songs like "Round & Round" & "Fine Time" proved New Order could easily create a hit single as well as a club anthem. Not to mention, the album was probably the band's best since 1983's POWER, CORRUPTION & LIES (home to New Order's signature song, "Blue Monday", which later hit the pop charts in a remixed version). Maybe success & the strain of it caused New Order to fragment slightly, for the recording of the follow-up to TECHNIQUE was said to be quite difficult, laying the foundation for the band's eventual 8-year hiatus. Indeed, 1993's REPUBLIC is a fine work, especially considering the signs of band turmoil are quite minimal.
If there was one good thing to come out of the tough sessions for REPUBLIC (which wound up being the highest charting album of their career), it was the song that would become New Order's second top 40 hit (after "True Faith"): "Regret". Of course, one could never fault the band for being original in their songwriting, but maybe that's because they're specializing in a genre that tends to downplay lyrical importance in favor of a good beat. However, with "Regret", New Order manages to create poetry out of simplicity, and while it is another entry in the "woe-is-me" category of music, Bernard Sumner just might be hinting at some sense of hope in his usual deadpan vocal delivery. The prominent use of electric guitar (not often appreciated in a genre like techno or dance) helps foreshadow the more full-blown use of it on 2001's GET READY.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well, I like it! July 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is the first New Order album I have bought. Knowing a good deal of New Order's singles, I thought it was about time I purchased one of their albums. I bought this particular one for the fantastic single and opener `Regret', which ranks up there with Blue Monday and World In Motion as one of the best New Order singles ever and because I had heard it mentioned as one of the better New Order albums. Having explored the subject a little further since buying it, I have seen that it is not generally regarded as the best, but I love it.
`Regret' in fact turns out to be a bit of a red herring for the album, as it hints that this album would tend towards indie as opposed to dance, the two genres they balance so immaculately in their music. Instead, while not being quite as dancey as much of what I've heard of it's predecessor `Technique', it does feature synthy hooks and bass lines in many of the tracks. Some of New Order's dancey stuff can threaten to turn into cheesy dance, but Bernard's distinctive vocals always save the day, and on Republic they don't need to save the day as the backing too is good. Second track `World' is catchy and infused with a good beat.
Part of the attraction of this album is its ability to lay down dance-infused drums and bass before adding strings, vocals and guitars that give it a different feel. This is particularly evident on `Spooky'. It almost seems sometimes like the album is alternating between the more indie tracks on odd numbers and the more dance track on evens. It is the drums particularly that give this effect, with more raw, real drumbeats on odd tracks and faster, more synthy beats on even tracks. I wonder if these two sides to the album are deliberately reflected in the cover artwork, with the burning house and people playing on the beach.

"Regret" is as good an anything else they ever did, which is why it is so often used as "bumper" music on the radio. Read more

When I think of this album, I always think of it as New Order's "new" release. Hard to believe it's been almost 20 years since it came out!

Good album over all. Read more
