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 ...

Editorial Reviews

US version features one bonus track unavailable on any other pressing, 'Temptation' (Secret Machines Remix). The massively influential band New Order formed in Manchester, England, in 1980, rising from the ashes of U.K. post-punk pioneers Joy Division (after singer Ian Curtis took his own life). Guitarist Bernard Sumner assumed vocal duties for the new unit, and with drummer Stephen Morris, bassist Peter Hook, and keyboardist Gillian Gilbert, made music history. Successfully fusing new wave, electronica, synth-pop, and club music earlier than many bands now seen as contemporaries, their unique sound was as insightful and soulful as it was perfectly suited for the dance floor. From their earliest singles to their latest hits, this historic double-disc collection offers a career-spanning portrait of one of the most enduring and distinctive bands in modern rock. Rhino.

5.0 out of 5 stars the Place to Start....or the Place to Stop January 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It's obvious just how influential, and just how cutting edge New Order have always been. They are one of the very few who deserve their legendary status. What many people seem to forget is how many of their singles ( compiled herein ) are pure pop celebrations, probably because for years NO singles were kept strictly seperate from their albums. Often shy, ethereal, and indeed mopey on many of their album cuts, NO singles are more often than not cause for dancing, decadence and drugs. So why buy SINGLES and not SUBSTANCE, or THE BEST OF, or INTERNATIONAL?
For a few simple, but very important reasons. Obviously, every single NO 7" is represented here ( the original Blue Monday was only ever a 12" , but that is the sole exception ). The early tracks have been given a sonic upgrade that is frankly astonishing. Listen to the first minute or so of Ceremony and you'll see. The difference between this and the version on SUBSTANCE is like the proverbial night and day. The clarity and seperation of sound is amazing, and the bass drum kicks like never before. Also, SINGLES marks the US cd debut of the 7" single versions of Temptation and Confusion, two tracks that were re-recorded for the SUBSTANCE compilation. These two tracks are pure electro bliss, and are as forward thinking now as they were in the very early Eighties. Even when NO could be seen as treading water,when they settled into comfortable middle age ( anything after the singles from TECHNIQUE ) a second ( or third, or fourth ) listen will bring out musical and lyrical nuances that make these songs all stand out in their own way. This is a sterling collection, now my favourite NO compilation. I couldn't do without it.

Format:Audio CD
This is, bar NONE, a must-buy...a must must MUST buy...one of the greatest hits/singles collections ever, by anybody, period!!!!

This set expands on 1987's "Substance", blows away "International" and "(The Best Of) New Order" by a mile...the only other collection you need besides this is the "Retro" boxset, preferably the 5-disc version...the thing is, you kinda need to burn/copy various tracks from each, in order to not need them...the 1994 import remix collection "(The Rest Of) New Order", I find for completists only, although I don't have a copy.

The difference between "Singles" and "Substance", besides it being up-to-date with all 31 singles, is that "Substance" has mainly 12" versions and 2 rerecordings (1987) of the first 12 singles, plus B-sides on disc 2, while here, "Singles" has mainly shorter 7" radio versions...but 2 tracks are kept intact from "Substance": "True Faith" and the original "Blue Monday" in it's full 7 minute glory...I like these versions just as much, except on 1 song, 1984's "Thieves Like Us"...the whole second verse is cut on this version, the one regarding pills, kinda ruins the song for me...plus, the 1st disc is only 69 minutes, there was ample room for the full-lengther, or at least left that verse in on this version...oh well, I'll live.

Back to the positive...this new US version sounds even better than the earlier UK one...the remastering is BEYOND BELIEF, woah!!!! Makes someone like me hope for the whole frikking catalogue to be done!!!! The packaging and liner notes are identical, but slightly refined on the US version...it looks a drop better for some reason...I know, I used to have the import but sold it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Collection December 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Obviously if you didn't own any New Order, this would be an incredible purchase - 31 of the best tracks of all time in one package. However, it is probably safe to assume that most people who will buy this already own versions of all of these tracks (except the cool bonus remix) or at least the ones that are on previous collections (Substance, Best Of, International). But most reviews I have read of this collection totally miss this main point - this is the first time ever you can get the original 7" versions of all of these tracks on cd (except for the original Blue Monday, which is the 12" version). This is awesome! Complaining this is yet another New Order collection and why do we need another... totally misses the point. Complaining that you prefer some aspect of some other 12" version of a track totally misses the point - if you want the 12" versions, that is not the point of this collection. It is just so cool to be able to have the 7" version of Temptation, which is totally different then the 12" version. Though perhaps this is the most obvious example, almost all of the tracks here differ from the versions on albums and previous collections. Well worth the purchase price (which ironically, is higher than the import version if you order direct from the UK, but you do get the extra remix of Temptation by Secret Machines, which is actually pretty cool).

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathed New Life into New Order June 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The remastering here is exceptional. You have never heard the older tracks the way they sound on this compilation. This has replaced Substance as my New Order quick fix album.

A great intro for beginners and must have for the collectors who only know these singles from the way they USED to sound. Amazing!

2.0 out of 5 stars HUGE FAN -- MORE HUGELY DISAPPOINTED
This CD is all remakes, mostly more (overly) produced. If you want the better, less overdubbed claptrap songs, get SUBSTANCE. That's what I just did. I am Waaaaay disappointed. Read more

Distortions In the Recording
I think they sound clearer than the versions on Substance. I haven't experienced any distortion, and I think the vocals are well defined and centered well.

However - while the remastering is spacious, I also wonder about loudness. If you read up about the "loudness wars", you'll find... Read More
