There's an awful lot of people out there who share my opinion that this is New Order's finest album, and with good reason. Technique is consistently superb from the first notes of Fine Time through the final fade out of Dream Attack. Its the soundtrack to that summer you've always dreamed of - basking on a sun soaked beach while the warm wind washes over you.

Fine Time starts things out - a slightly strange housy song that is none the less very catchy. "You're much too young - to be a part of me / You're much too young - to mess around with me" Mix in Barry White style deep vocals, Peter Hook's awe inspiring melodic bass, and even sheep sounds, and you've got a winning track that could only have come from New Order. 7.5 / 10

Next up is All The Way - New Order at their most upbeat and a tour de force of song writing prowess. Primarily an acoustic guitar driven number, with a touch of synths, Hook's bass and a very upbeat chorus - "It takes years to find the nerve to be apart from what you've done - to find the truth inside yourself and not depend on anyone". 9/10

The third track, Love Less, kicks things into a slightly lower gear following the high of All The Way. Again, guitar and bass driven, but more downtempo in a way that conveys melancholy without sounding sad as only New Order can. "Can't you see, why don't you look at me? Its not your right to be, so much my enemy..." 8.5 / 10

The most recognizable track on the album is the single Round & Round - simply a terrific track but probably the one track that might not fit in with the others on the album. Pop bliss, with bouncing, bubbly synth work meshing perfectly with Hooky's basslines and some of Bernard's most inspired lyrics.

The MUSIC on these New Order reissues get a 5/5, easily. However, there were far too many egregious mistakes made in the creation of the discs themselves to give them a pass. Only the first discs were re-mastered though they still have some problems, it is the bonus discs that are an absolute mess.

Warner Music/Rhino know about these problems, but there is yet no word on any forthcoming fixes. So I'd hold off until these issues are addressed.

Noted below are the specific problems with the Technique reissue:

1, Fine Time
2, All the way
3, love less (click at 0:04 - unconfirmed)
4, Round and round
5, Guilty partner
6, Run
7, Mr disco
8, vanishing point
9, Dream attack
"Sleeve notes full of errors" "Did anyone proof read these?"
- bonus disc
1, Don't do it - Clicks and pops at 0:08, 0:18, 0:35, 0:40, 1:00, 2:25, 2:27, 3:01, 3:05, 3:07, 3:32, 4:12, 4:17, and 4:19. (a skip near the beginning of the track)
2, Fine line - A myriad of crackles and "jumps"
3, Round and round (dubious sound quality, clicks, pops and digital glitches. "4 pops/irregular static within the first 20 seconds". Problems at 0:05, 0:07, 0:10, 0:16, 0:28, 0:32, 0:36, 0:41, 0:48, 0:52, 0:54, 0:56, 0:59, 1:05, 1:30, 1:39, 2:28, 2:30, 2:32, 2:41, 2:43, 2:52, 3:03, 3:15, 4:19, 5:18, 5:34, 6:32, and 6:34.
4, Best and marsh (dubious sound quality)
5, Run 2 - Plays the extended version (not listed as such). Sound quality suggests it was "mastered" from vinyl. Clicks and pops at: 0:03, 0:10, 0:17, 0:24, 0:38, 0:41, 0:45, 0:50, 1:02, 1:13, 1:40, 2:02, 2:39, 3:10, 3:58, 4:05, 4:12, 4:15, 4:29, 4:42, 4:56, and 5:10.

Just a warning to those who are thinking about buying this. The mastering of the original disc is "ok" at best, but the bonus CD is terrible. Half the songs are mastered from Vinyl and you can very easily hear pops and skips and dropouts, etc.. Even Peter Hook has responded to all the complaints that he will do his best to get these fixed. Warner's doesn't seem to care since they had a couple of months to fix this issue since the UK release. If all you want is Technique remastered, then buy it used. The package is terrible, the liner notes are terrible (there are misspellings, wrong dates, and the insert is completely white with only black text.)

BTW this doesnt just apply to Technique. ALL the remasters have the same issues....

New Order had some great albums in the beginning with Power,Corruption and Lies - Lowlife - and Brotherhood, etc, but they were always forging their own way with the childlike guitar playing of Bernard Sumner (per Johnny Marr) and the meandering bass lines of Peter Hook, were always kept in line with the original drums (not drum machines in the beginning) and catchy synth loops - I still love the synthesized croaking frogs on "Thieves Like Us".

1989 was a great year in music. The eighties saw the most different types of new music one could ever dream of, and what better way to finish off the decade than with a masterpiece; Technique - says it all. This is not an album to skip around from track to track looking for a single - the entire album is brilliant from start to finish - which is how it should be listened to. I remember seeing the Technique concert in San Diego, and New Order headlined for the following bands: De La Soul, Sugarcubes, and Public Image Limited. What a show!

Other great albums from that very same year of 1989:

PIL - 9

10000 Maniacs - Blind Man's Zoo

Jimmy Cliff - Cliff Hanger

Pixies - Doolittle

The Cure - Disintegration

The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses

XTC - Oranges & Lemons

Peter Murphy - Deep

The Cult - Sonic Temple

They Might Be Giants - Lincoln

The The - Mind Bomb

Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine

Love and Rockets - Love & Rockets

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Mother's Milk

Depeche Mode - 101 Live

De La Soul - 3 Feet High and Rising

Sugarcubes - Here Today, Tomorrow Next Week!

Soul II Soul - Club Classics Vol. 1/Keep On Movin'

I'd be lucky to be able to think of this many good albums from all of the 90's combined.
