Editorial Reviews

The new, New Order album was recorded in several British studios throughout 2004 and features a 'dancier' angle as opposed to the guitar heavy Get Ready. This is New Order's first record made without founding keyboardist Gillian Gilbert. Gilbert left the band amidst the 2001-02 world tour for Get Ready to care for her ill daughter and has been permanently replaced by Phil Cunningham. London Recordings. 2005.

Someone here mentioned the term "mythology of New Order" and that compelled me to chime in. I'm not sure how the old-time NO fans will take to this, but speaking for myself I'm blown back into the water...this is the real deal, from the pappies of the sound they created, back (once again) to show the new school a few new lessons. I LOVE the sound at play here, from the first track to the last. Of course, I loved "Get Ready" as well...nothing here quite touches the urgency of "Crystal", but instead most tracks stretch to the breaking point...I never wanted anything to end...literally my ears had to re-learn how to listen to this group, and grab ahold for the long haul.

The opening bass of "Hey Joe" rocks my world...literally. "Know What You're Doing" is the funkiest techno-jazz I've ever heard and should be mandatory in every elevator...pronto! "Krafy" just makes me smile, nuff said there. Some people hate it, but "I Told You So" is my favorite track, and a great sequel to "60 mph"...oh man, how much I love this band when they're firing on all cylinders...

From "Dracula's Castle" and "Morning Night and Day" I can't believe how good things are...this is New Order's most complete album I've ever heard...every track is great (yes, even "Working Overtime"). It took me a few listens to really get a hold on things...but this is certainly my favorite ALBUM (in the truest sense of the word) of 2005 so far. I almost shed a tear when the thing ended, as always I wanted more. But then I hit the play button on the old ipod and started over.

Thank you, New Order...thanks for sticking around. New school, are you listening? THIS is how longevity is done...take note!

New Order are the greatest musicians in rock. In their earliest days, as Joy Division, they wrote music that reached unimaginable heights of passion; as New Order, they wrote music that sounded forever young and carefree; they always had more talent than was meant for mortal man. We know that even the weakest New Order song will be superior to the vast majority of popular music, and so, all we ask from every New Order album is one, just one glorious song of breathtaking brilliance, a song to make us shudder with bliss. Such are "Temptation," "The Perfect Kiss," "True Faith." We were a bit worried in 2001, when New Order recorded their first album in eight years, but fortunately, the first song on it was "Crystal," and when we heard it, we put our inner critic to rest, because we knew that everything would be all right. And in 2005, once again, when the sun is shining outside, and the heat is coming down hard on the lazy streets, and young people are undergoing the greatest romances of their lives, there's nothing to do but put New Order's new album on repeat.

Bernard Sumner's vocals just get better with age. No one can match him for warmth and charm. He's like the best friend you always wished you had, who always thought of the most fun things to do, who could always get away with breaking the rules, who never seemed to be weighed down with cares, and who later flew the world, kissed pretty girls in every city, and came back to see you ten years later without having changed a bit. Just listen to him sing "I've got to find you, whatever I do" on the opening track. If your real friends are as loyal, consider yourself lucky. What about his voice in the chorus of "Hey Now What You Doing"? Just listen to the way his voice goes into an enraptured falsetto on the stressed syllables.

As a long-time and hard-core NO fan, I could go on and on and on about the greatness of New Order. I could bring up this and that album, which ones are the best or second-best. That would only serve to influence your acceptance or rejection of this review. So I will only provide commentary on this piece of work as it stands on its own. Take away the history of one of the most influential bands ever and regard Waiting for the Sirens' Call for what it is: Perfect.

I don't give many releases such a high rating. When I do, it's for one simple reason- great songwriting. Here it is. New Order, no matter what they have done in the past, has accomplished a perfect "record" here. These guys (literally- alas, Gillian has moved on) have matured and perfected their songwriting craft.

Melodies bleed from every song. Every single song. Arrangements are flawless: with verses, choruses, and bridges coming at you exactly the way you always hoped they would- they get at you quickly and never grow old. They get in you and don't want to leave.

Here are lyrics & rhythms that evoke and provoke the senses and emotions. The playing is gifted and creative, smart and fun. You'll sing along to the bass and guitar parts as often as the vocals. The production shimmers without being too shiny or digital-clean. There's synthesizers and guitars in an embrace that brings old and new musical stylings together to create a brand new baby.

The whole cd just cooks. After a few listens, you'll be completely hooked and won't be able to eject it from whichever player has the good fortune to play it. There's simply no way you cannot love these songs. I dare you not to. If you get it, you'll love it. If you don't, you'll miss it.
