Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Apparently freed from the constraints of having to make a "big musical statement" and from the financial pressures on their record label (Factory) - both of which arguably blighted their debut The Other Two And You - New Order's Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert actually came up with a pretty good pop record the second time around. The trouble was nobody was listening - including me. After all, how on earth would you market something like this in the late 1990s?

Fast-forward 10 years: to post-Killers/Editors/Hot Chip/etc electro-retro generation and just maybe there is a reason to listen...

OK, so there's zero sonic innovation here. Although there are some surprising turns - for example Stephen Morris's attempts at drum 'n' bass percussion (he's no Mel Gaynor, that's for sure) - for the most part this LP is essentially and unashamedly quality M.O.R. In fact, The Other Two seem to have anticipated the balearic music-your-mum-would-like vibes of the likes of Dido by at least a year.

Whilst it's not going to be to everyone's (even New Order fans') taste, it's difficult for me not to like this. It's not perfect BUT the production is smooth, Gillian's singing has markedly improved since the first O2 album and the songs have real depth. Perhaps most remarkably of all, and in stark contrast to any New Order release you care to mention, it sounds like the musicians actually had fun making it.

Listen without prejudice.

Format: Audio CD
Along with other great New Order offshoots (Electronic, Revenge, Monaco), The Other Two, is a terrific project by "the other two" - Stephen and Gillian. This is their second album, after 'The Other Two and You'. The first album, I thought, was a bit patchy/inconsistent, but Superhighways is fantastic. Gillian on vocal (yes, she has a great voice) for most tracks, with a guest vocalist on a couple (in my opinion not sounding as good). Fantastic, atmospheric, mature, varied, mostly poppy electronic music. I've had this album for over a year, have a LOT of CDs, but still this is a fave - it's a great album, buy it!

When New Order fans learned that the presumed techoids behind the Manchester independents were taking their synthesized and BPM packages outside of the Substance box, expectations were high. However, the final project, "The Other Two and You", was less than satisfying (1993). Some time later, we find the pronounced duo (Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert) taking a swing at splinter success with their second release "Superhighways". Like their debut, "Superhighways" is a testament to the lives of 'common people living in a world of destruction'. However, they put aside the anger and ill-remorse by focusing on the warm, lush atmospheric soundscapes, illustrating their recently earned diploma in Dream-Pop, in the highest of production degrees. "You can fly", featuring the stunning vocals by guest Melanie Williams ushers in a mesmerizing stereo experience that will have you thinking in the end that you really ' CAN fly '. After the adrenaline rush, the Other Two present perhaps the greatest song they've ever written and produced, the title track "Superhighways". Reaching deep beneath the core of their relationship, Gilbert stretches beyond the drone of being a New Ordist and spills out her charming frustrations: "Let us cry like cheated lovers..." she pleads until she reaches the breaking the point. "Give me anything you want, we have everything we need; a loser to this game of love..Read more ›

A Dance Pop Masterpiece 31 Aug 2004
By ELVIN ORTA RODRIGUEZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If the opener "You Can Fly" does not grab you, nothing else will. Gilbert & Morris' finest hour, and a fantastic, joyous departure from New Order's style. Along with their debut "The Other Two And You", essential for any pop music lover. Gillian's voice is a surprise, and the beats will hold your feet hostage.

Amazing must have 19 Feb 2005
By Sean A. Curran - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This Cd is an amazing piece of work by the other two members of New Order. Their debut album was a little lacking, but with their sophomore release they found it. This is an amazing compilation of songs that I can't stop playing. Being that I finally got hold of this cd 6 years after its release, it might as well have been released today. A must have for anyone that loves new order or any of the side projects. It's also a must have for people that are looking for REAL music from artists that know how to produce it.

A 3-TRACK CD SINGLE 19 Jun 2005
By One World - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
1- Superhighways
2- Superhighways (Andy Votel mix)
3- You Can Fly (Cevin Fisher Mile High Club Mix)

I just don't understand why Amazon flat out refuses to catagorize this as a CD Single! I own the actual copy and it has the three songs I stated here AND the UPC matched!

I used their automated system to add in the information, I have called, and I have emailed all to no avail. I want you all to be aware because you may mistake this for a full-length cd as one of my buyers did with this copy. Unfortunately, Amazon thinks they know better!

Super Highways 27 Sep 2002
By kylie collector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Gillian and Stephen just don't get the credit they deserve. Gillian has a beautiful, innocent voice. Why she gets barely any vocal time on the New Order projects is beyond me. Super Highways contains more substance then their last album (there are only two instrumental songs here.) This album has some wonderful lyrics. You Can Fly is a nice dance track. Cold Feet is a great song. The album is worth the price for the last track , "Weird Woman." It mixes strings, syth and some super bass. This is one of the most simple and beautiful songs I have ever heard.

The best of the New Order side project albums 5 Jan 2007
By J. Enriquez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was not an easy album to get ahold of back when it was released and it is even harder to find now, but it is an amazing album that is worth seeking out. I can't say that it is worth some of the really high prices I have seen listed for it, but then - what music is? Just take it from me that this is a great album - great melodies, very upbeat, good singing and lyrics, and lots of fun. I think this is the best album out of all the New Order side projects with the possible exception of Electronic's Raise the Pressure. For comparison's sake, this album is far better than The Other Two & You.
