Biography by Jason Ankeny

Rising from the ashes of the legendary British post-punk unit Joy Division, the enigmatic New Order triumphed over tragedy to emerge as one of the most influential and acclaimed bands of the 1980s; embracing the electronic textures and disco rhythms of the underground club culture many years in advance of its contemporaries, the group's pioneering fusion of ...

OK, so the last thing we need right now is another New Order compilation! And it more than smacks of the record company cashing in on New Order's back catalogue - but most fans admit that until now, there hasn't been a decent follow-up to 1987's "Substance". Each attempt since then has been extremely flawed - the shockingly bad "best of" released in 1994 didn't contain classics such as Ceremony or Temptation, and although "Retro" contained some gems, it was far too messy & fanboy-ish for it's own good. The import-only "International" wasn't bad, but being a single disc again meant that important songs missed the tracklisting.
With "Singles" you get two discs containing every single New Order have released to date. Nothing is frustratingly omitted, and there are 7" versions of Ceremony, Temptation & Thieves Like Us available on CD for the first time. Finally, a comprehensive "best of" compilation of one of the most influential groups of the last 20+ years. Some of the greatest songs ever written are contained on these two little discs - buy it!

I am an avid fan of New Order and I have all there albums including 2 preivous "best of's" International & Substance and this is my favourite one. The most simple reason is that you can have all there singles up to now on one package and what fantastic singles they were! Another reason is that it has every single is in the original format. For example "Temptation" & "Confusion" were on Substance but they were versions re-recorded for that album & the only way to have the original before this album, was to of bought the vinyl 7" single over 22 years ago! which I do have, being a fan. But this is no good if I want listen to it in my car, or put on my mp3 player to listen to. I even like the new stuff which some people don't appriciate for some reason, Crystal, Here to Stay, Waiting for the sirens call, are all brilliant pop/rock/dance tunes.

..of course it doesn't do everything. New Order are a dance remix band as well as a 7" single band, and some of the edits (e.g. Spooky, The Perfect Kiss) are not as good as the album or extended versions, although I far prefer some of the shorter versions here (Shellshock, State of the Nation). As other reviewers have said, not all the versions are truly the single versions (e.g. Bizarre Love Triangle), so it's not as perfect as it might be. But still there are enough different versions of old songs to keep old fans happy, and as an introduction to the band it's near perfect (Much better than Best of, or International and Substance only takes you to 1987) The standard barely dips throughout and the last two tracks are gems.

For the New Order fan, there have been numerous 'best ofs' so far. First came the excellent 'Substance', but now several albums down the line it was obviously out of date and needed either a 'Substance 2' or better still, a proper chronological collection of all their singles in one package.

Not much to ask? You'd be surprised. First came a poor single disc 'Best of' which criminally missed off some of NO's best tracks. Then came a 'Rest of' remixes collection.....And then came a four cd boxed set which was possibly the worst 'best of' I have ever seen in my life.

Basically what I am saying is that they were all appalling, but this one is brilliant. I hardly need comment on the actual songs, needless to say a collection of all the New Order singles is not going to be anything other than fantastic.

Superb songs, superbly compiled and collected. If only more bands would follow this example.

This is New Order "Singles". You get what you pay for. The 7" versions (well for most tracks) of all their released singles. Anybody complaining that you don't get the full version of "The Perfect Kiss" or "Shellshock" is missing the point - it's called singles, and it's only those tracks which didn't come out in commercial 7" format that are included on the CD in 12" form - "Blue Monday" being the prime example. It's a bit of a minefield but probably the most consistent compilation we've got so far.

So we get the 7" version of "Ceremony" which is a different recording to the one you know from "Substance" (apparently the channels have been swapped round but I didn't notice - just pleased to have it released on CD!). Likewise "Temptation" in it's 7" form is different to the 12" found on "Retro".

Unfortunately "1963" is included in it's original version from the "True Faith" single and not in it's Arthur Baker mixed 1995 single release mix, which is a cock-up. There's no "Blue Monday 1995" but possibly 3 versions on one CD is too much so I'll let that pass. The version of "Spooky" is an edit of the album version rather than the single mix by Fluke. "Run 2" as ever, isn't the Scott Litt single version but the one from "Technique". Again. Grrrr. And why "Turn" is on there nobody knows.

Despite it's flaws, until "Substance" gets a makeover this is the best New Order compilation out there. It just could have been a little better - why Warners can't find a person to take care of New Order's legacy I just don't know.
