Well it's a toss up between this and 'Power, Corruption and Lies' for the best New Order album. For the 'Blue Monday' fans 'Power....' is the best bet, but if you're looking for a more upbeat, dance orientated album, then this is your one.
This is my fave New Order album. The opener 'Fine Time' is one of my favourite New Order tracks. Starting off with a thumping 4/4 beat it builds into an eletronic bassline driven song which filled the dancefloors back in 1989.
The rest of the album is a heady mix of classic pop songs and guitar laden, dance tracks. Very upbeat sounding but when you listen tot he lyrics you understand it is not too upbeat, it wouldn't be New Order if it was!
The album finishes with 'Dream Attack' which is another gem, a guitar intro which flows into a full flowing, beautiful pop song.
