A top product and pretty much a definitive collection of some of their finest moments. I'd be carping if I said not featuring such outstanding album tracks as Some Distant Memory of The Patience Of A Saint (from the stunning eponymous debut album) represented a massive disappointment as there's nothing stopping anyone either buying or downloading the three original albums to assess things properly.
Certainly all the masterworks are here: Getting Away With It (with Neil Tennant's sarcastic lyric, allegedly written from the point-of-view of Morrissey), Get The Message, Feel Every Beat (featuring Barney rapping!), Disappointed and Twisted Tenderness, the latter being probably the last great song they recorded.
One can see the progression of Electronic here. It's interesting because Marr and Sumner started the project in order to move away from what they thought of the pre-defined roles and politics of being in conventional four-piece bands (The Smiths and New Order respectively) and yet, by the time Twisted Tenderness had been released, they'd more or less become a four-piece band! This compilation also shows how their music changed over time; from the sublime pop of Getting Away With It to the much darker, rockier Late At Night (their final single) which gives you an idea of how much ground they'd covered but also how each of the three albums differ from each other.
Indeed it was a shame that they didn't feature any demos or live tracks but New Order themselves have yet to officially release any demos.
For a project that had a baptism of fire live - supporting Depeche Mode in front of seventy thousand strong crowd at New York's Yankee Stadium (!), the boys done good overall. Buy this and find out how they pulled it off.
