With music that celebrates the thrill of the moment and played a pivotal role in the emergence of electronica and techno, New Order established themselves as one of the great bands of the '80s and '90s. Here they're seen in their Finsbury Park concert from June 2002, playing many of their now-classic songs and their "comeback single", "Crystal". A documentary made during the setup and sound check takes the viewer backstage and close-up. Like the companion volume 316, 511 offers one of those rare opportunities to see this enigmatic band on camera talking about their music and their future.

Visually, it's a bit droll, what with the rain, mud-soaked concert goers (you'll spy some families here and there), and the little glimmers of daylight. But that makes it fun, because this is a testament to New Order's dedication and ability. They could have easily backed out ("I'd rather be home watching Stars on Sunday," Sumner jokes) but instead, the band and the fans rock out and have a great time.
This is a great DVD--better than 316, in my opinion--and worth watching over and over again for any New Order fan or anyone who simply wants to hear a band playin at their best.
I bought this DVD when I noticed that " She Lost Control" was on the set list. That song is phenomenal, a personal favorite for decades. Damn, the band nailed it and then some. I mean, they tore that thing right into the ground.
Anyway, the entire concert is just incredible. Now, I am a New Order fan. It was nice seeing middle aged men who were being themselves and delivering a mind blowing performance. There were no costumes or fancy stage productions, just musicians in t-shirts and jeans who can drive a crowd into a frenzy.
The audio is well produced and the camera work is nicely done. I was entranced and found myself on my feet boppin' around. I'm not exagerating; the performance is that powerful and fun.
I am truly sorry that I went all these years without having New Order in my collection of music. That will be remedied.
