Biography

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 ...

Released as a companion to New Order's Best of album, released in 1995, The Rest of New Order at first appears to be....a lot of the tracks repeating themselves. Not so much a Rest Of you might think, but more of a Best of repackaged for the unwary punter.
However, despite featuring 8 of the tracks that appear on the Best of, some of the tracks have been so radically reworked that it's almost like owning an entirely new collection altogether. Here you get versions of Age of Consent, Confusion and Everything's Gone Green (none of which appear on the Best Of), as well as bigger and better dancefloor fillers such as True Faith, Regret and Temptation.
Especially good is the hardfloor mix of Blue Monday, but it's pretty difficult to pick stand-out tracks when you've got the likes of Armand van Helden, Paul Oakenfold (in Perfecto mode) and Howie B calling the tune(s). Personal favourite here would have to be the reworking of True Faith by Shep Pettibone, simply because it sounds radically different (a very dark tribal affair), yet has still remained a brilliant track with great hooks.
All in all then, a pretty good remix collection of tunes you already know and love, but given some new life by some pretty nifty studio work. Certainly not an essential collection, but one you can definitely put on before you go out and hit the clubs, and a good taster for a new album that will hopefully appear some time in 2001.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sumptuous and sensational 31 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant, brilliant, leaves the companion 'best of' collection back in the traps. I'm playing this harsh, rhythmic, driving album at full tilt as I write, breaking off every now and then to dance with the dead from the cemetery opposite who've heard what's going on and risen to rave from da grave! Not one bad cut. Check out Blue Monday and True Faith. Worth buying for these trax alone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelming 16 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I usually can't be bothered with Amazon reviewers who go through albums track by track, but seeing as this one's a pretty incoherent compilation, I've got no choice, so here goes:
World- This track differs very little from the cut on Republic- the main hook for this mix is taken from the little interlude near the end of the original cut, and the backing vocals are bit more processed-sounding. That's about it.
Blue Monday- This is the best track on the album- a sleek, shimmering techno mix which updates it just enough while still keeping the character of the original.
True Faith- Not much different from the original. A five-minute drum track is tacked on to the end of the song, and I also noticed on the radio today that the percussion track at the start is same as Whitney Houston's I Wanna Dance with Somebody (how uncool is that?)
Confusion- This is an absolutely storming piece of hardcore European-style techno. It's a great track, but bears no resemblance at all to the original cut.
Touched By the Hand of God- A bit lame, this one- kicks off with some ambient washes of synth, then a predictable house beat kicks in. Below par.
Bizarre Love Triangle- A pretty faceless house mix- decent enough, but doesn't do enough justice to the original.
Ruined In a Day- This is gorgeous track, but differs very little from the original cut.
Regret- This is like a stripped-down version of Regret, minus the guitars- a bit of jazzy house piano has been added- it's nice, but there's no comparing this with the original.
Age of Consent- This is the other stand-out track. Howie B has cooked up a brilliantly stoned slice of trip-hop (remember trip-hop, anyone?) A really refreshing slant on a classic NO cut.
Spooky- This one's a real throw-away mix.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish! 18 April 2005
By gRAVY
Format:Audio CD
New Order have released some brilliant tracks. But why do they have to give them all the B-Side remix treatment?
The originals are amazing, if you want to hear them then good for you, buy the best of. And do not buy this shoddy remix album.
If you have no life and cannot respect an original piece of art and would rather see a copy of a painting gaffeeteed on a wall rather than in its original format in an art gallery. Then get this album. But if you want to keep some friends and respect, play it with headphones on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well, its got a good beat... 7 Nov 2000
By Steven Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Thats the up side. Lovers of dance music may actually find this disc more attractive than most New Order-lovers would. Once you start, the drums don't stop, except for a few short moments. Speaking as a New Order fan, I'd have to say that the first half of this remix compilation is quite good. My favorite song, "True Faith" has been mixed in a way that all of the sounds and intricies that combined to flow smoothly in the original were all extracted and enhanced, making the song even more powerful than before. The Hardfloor mix of Blue Monday is stunning. Its the first and, as far as I know, the only mix that has actually completely altered the Blue Monday chords, but still retained the steady moodiness of the song, only at a faster beat! "World" has been lengthened quite a bit and mixed with a much more raw, full sound than the original. "Touched By the Hand Of God" was turned into an all out dance-fest as opposed to its original short pop format. And even "Confusion," though much different and unusual, is unique as well and probably the hardest foot-stomper through the entire 80-minute selection.
The problem comes with the second half. With the exception of "Regret", which is a toned-down, more melodic version of the original, the tracks range from average to horrible. "Bizarre Love Triangle" is at its absolute worst here and has no place on this album or any other New Order-related release whatsoever. Its by far the worst track to be found here. And I'll be damned if the life has not been completely sucked out of "Age of Consent". So, this CD has its good points and its bad points, but for dance music lovers and for HARDCORE New Order fans, I'd have to give it a recommendation, albeit not a strong one. If you're just starting out on New Order, get Substance, The Best Of, and a few of their proper albums first.

3.0 out of 5 stars Confusion Indeed 29 Jan 2000
By "steve_kelly" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The first thing I will say is that very few, if any, of the songs contained herein actually better their originals. For me as an owner of, and listener to, just about everything these people have committed to record, this collection has provided a welcome new angle to listen to some much-loved favourites.
In this collection of sequenced, pounding melodrama, the boys from the grim north comprehensively reinvent some of their more celebrated pieces from the back catalogue for the late nineties dancefloor, and make you wonder what they were up to all those years. While we celebrated the lush tones of "Touched By The Hand of God" the first time round, we had no idea it could sound like this - lulling you into thinking its going to be a slowed down revisit of the bouncy original until it explodes into what this CD is really all about.
It comes as no surprise that the best adaptations are from more recent fare - World, Ruined in a Day, Regret and Spooky, all from the vastly underrated Republic translate perfectly to their new interpretations, my personal favourite being Regret, which in its original form somehow didn't sound like the love song it so obviously is now having heard its beautiful simplicity, the spacious piano and orchestral synth painting a perfectly sparse backdrop to Sumner's exuberance at having finally found the real thing.
Special mention here for the grand-daddy of them all. Blue Monday gets a superb face-lift with its "hardfloor mix," converting its revolutionary, if rather ponderous sequenced beat, to an absolutely irresistible dance-must. Blue Monday is like a signpost, a flag, and it is still the world's best-selling 12 inch single of all time.
Another classic oldie gets serious update-treatment with the Pump Panel Reconstruction mix of "Confusion" which is now the trance it wanted to be back then.
There are a couple of misfires. I cannot accept that this is the best that can be done with "Bizarre Love Triangle" (although I love the crashing crescendo towards the end where it finally gets going) and the Shep Pettibone remix of "True Faith" does little more than tinker with the (superb) original. However, the joy of hearing a remix CD which is more than just retreads of tired old classics outweighs these minor gripes.
Open up this CD and play it loud, preferably in your car as I do incessantly, and at the first listen, spend the first 8 tracks wondering how on earth they will remix "Age Of Consent" and then as track 9 grinds forward, be glad you visited Amazon.com today.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Order - Remixed. 15 Oct 2002
By The Groove - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"The Rest of New Order" is the companion piece to the compilation "The Best of New Order," offering previously-released and rare remixes of the band's hits. Various DJs are roped in to give these songs an updated sound, and they pull it off with varying degrees of success. After the wholly unnecessary 1988 "remix" of the classic "Blue Monday," another version surfaces here, but this time, the beats pulsate much harder this time around. Overall, it stays faithful to the original, with a few updated touches. I'm not too huge a fan of the energetic remix of "World" or "Age of Consent," but Farley and Heller get it right with their low-key house interpretation of "Regret." Armand Van Helden, known for his hard and aggressive beats, breathes new life into "Bizarre Love Triangle." This version blazes into a trace-like stomper, before the tempo abruptly drops and then picks up again. Plus, the hyperactive mixes of "Confusion" and "Touched by the Hand of God" work well, too. At 80 minutes, this CD features the full-length versions of these mixes. While purists may drop their jaw in shock, completists should definitely grab this solid remix CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Biggest Beat Baby! 19 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, the best song on this CD is track 4, Confusion- Pump Panel Reconstrucion mix. This is the same song from all the movie previews for "Blade," and from the part of the movie itself in the beginning when they are in the vampire dance club. This song is the ultimate toe-thumper, and I didn't want to get the Blade Soundtrack because I'm not that into rap, and because of the explicit lyricks warning. Also, I am able to hear some other interesting techno beats insted of wasting twenty bucks on a CD with only one song I know I'll like. THE ULTIMATE DANCE BEAT!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect overview of dance music from 1986 - 1996 12 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Rest of New Order is pecisely that. It is not The Best of New Order, but represents what the average listener may have missed about this generally appealing band. Some of the singles here have been given slight embelishments, while others show dramatic reinterprations by their remixers. At any rate, it's a great mix, with many sub-genres in electronic music well represented. Selection high-lights include the Perfecto remix of "World," the Biff and Memphis remix of "Touched by the Hand of God," and the Hardfloor mix of "Blue Monday."
