Bernard Sumner and New Order bandmates Steve Morris and Phil Cunningham return sans bassist Peter Hook (following the seemingly bitter and irrevocable 2007 New Order breakup) but with the additions of Alex James (Blur) and Jake Evans (Rambo and Leroy) as Bad Lieutenant. Hook let it be know that he didn't want the New Order moniker used without him involved and Sumner took the new band name from that old Keitel movie when he saw it playing at former Electronic partner Johny Marr's house.

The new album sounds a little bit like a blast from the New Order past ("without the bass," as Hook has observed). In a good way, it's also bit like Electronic. Reading the track list, you might think someone had raided Paul Weller's wastebasket during the Wild Wood recordings. And so what? As Sumner sings on Summer Days: "1993 was a special time for me."

Don't expect anything too new or different. "Head Into Tomorrow," sports not only a Weller-esque title, but an Oasis-like delivery from the band's second vocalist Jake Evans.

But for new New Order fans, especially those who can't wait to hear Sumner singing again, NEVER CRY ANOTHER TEAR may cause a few happy tears to be spilled.

I've been listening to this album over and over on the way to and from work since the day it came out, which is a 45 minutes drive each way, and I am still showing absolutely no sign of getting bored with any of it.

The problem with some reviews of this album is that the reviewers get hung up on the history of some of the people in this band, and try to compare and contrast, rather than just enjoying it for what it is:

A masterpiece of an album that suits every mood, without one duff track on it.

Which is a marvel, in these days of people picking and choosing the one or two tunes from an album that they've heard on the radio.

Just buy it. You won't regret it for a second.

Having heard the single"sink of swim" i have to admit i wasnt expecting much, but was pleasantly suprised by how good this album is, its a real "grower", and in my opinion is brenard sumners best work since his debut electronic album back in 1991,

i think the stand out tracks are Twist Of Fate ,This Is Home, Running Out Of Luck , Shine Like The Sun, Runaway, Falling Trees .

yes it does lack hookys bass, and there is a lack of synths, but there are some great melodies,

I loved New Order, I mean REALLY loved New Order - quite simply the best band ever in my opinion. So i was gutted when they finally split but I needn't have worried as the split seems to have given Bernard a new lease of life and with his new project Bad Lieutenant he has delivered his best album since Technique.
Less keyboards and more lush guitars give the album a sumptious troubadour feel, and first single "Sink or Swim" is the Bernard at his songwriting best!"Twist of Fate" is surely destined to become a classic also. Newcomer Jake adds lead vocals to a few songs on the album to great effect - all in all a real return to form

Let's play a game.

Let's pretend for a little while that we know nothing at all about the
remarkable lineage of this fine ensemble's illustrious main protagonists.

Difficult I know but the suspension of knowledge and prior expectations
can sometimes reap rich rewards. No more so than with Bad Lieutenant's
new album 'Never Cry Another Tear'. It is a revelation.

This is not just a good album, it is a great album in every way.
The fourteen songs in this collection are among the very best
you will hear this year.

In no particular order and without reference to specific individual
contributions, stand-out tracks would have to include 'Twist Of Fate',
an ecstatically rich composition with a strong central melody and glowing
supporting harmonies, all contained within a strong driving rhythmic
framework. Perfectly conceived and performed.

The chiming chords and elastic bass of 'This Is Home' support another
uplifting sonic experience. The simple construction of the song
has much to do with its big impact.

In other hands 'Running Out Of Luck' might well have been a tad
brittle and twee. Here, however, incipient sentimentality is transcended
to deliver a truly heart-warming highlight. It is an alluring tune.
Songwriting of the very highest order.

Uncluttered simplicity is maintained throughout the project.
The economy of purpose and vision serves the material well.

'These Changes' is a slower-paced eco-anthem which wears its
heart on its sleeve. The lyrical sentiment is strong without
ever drifting into bathos.

'Shine Like The Sun' does just what it says on the tin.

The songs are nice, it's competently cobbled together, it's a New Order spinoff... it should be great but it's just OK, which is even more disappointing than something that is awful because you know it could have been so much more exciting. The production is slick but unimaginative. Apart from the opening track the rest of the songs blend together in a very samey sort of way. Even the inclusion of important guest artists - Joy Division drummer Stephen Morris and the distinctive Blur bassist Alex James - has been rendered a total waste as their contributions are buried in the guitar-heavy mix, and without reading the sleeve notes you'd be hard-pushed to guess which tracks they'd worked on. A big shame. We're going to have to wait for Hooky's Freebass album for our kicks instead (when he decides to pull his finger out and stops pretending to be a DJ).

On a positive note, Bernard Sumner's songwriting and singing is as pleasant as ever and as I say it is good to have another New Order spinoff album released, however anticlimactic it may have turned out to be. Singer/songwriter Jake Evans makes a very complementary partner. His songs and voice sound a little like Doves or Noel Gallagher.

I really hope they stick together and do another album, and if they're going to use revered guest artists again get in a producer who will turn it into more of an event instead of sausage-filling everyone into the same casing.
