Product Description

Despite an incredibly short recording career Joy Division remarkably have stood the test of time in terms of influential British bands. Their dark, brooding sound has inspired more artists than could be listed and their continued adoration today is testament to the forward thinking yet inward projected music and lyricism of a young band on the brink of success yet unsure of how to deal with it. With the sad passing of Ian Curtis, from the ashes rose New Order; the same core band but with a new fresh approach to their chosen career path. Loud, colourful and full of life.

Total is a chronological look at the two bands most important tracks, covering Joy Division staples such as "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and the resonating "Atmosphere". New Order bring to the table "Blue Monday," "Bizzare Love Triangle" and "True Faith." Also included is a brand new never released New Order track “Hellbent”.

Not necessarily for the track selection, which is is excellent actually, but by virtue of the fact that this is the best remastered CD of any Joy Division/New Order CD to date. The fiasco that was the 2008 New Order reissues has probably taught the record company a lesson in how to handle releases, and is certainly a far cry from the disastrous ear-splitting, dynamics-crushing Singles release from 2005.

Yes it's been done to death before- the new order compilation. But don't be too harsh on the band. This is likely a scheme hatched by the record company and the band will have to go along with it. And remember, if it introduces some new people to New Order & Joy Division- people who, remember, will not have heard of Substance or the best of or Retro or Singles- then it's done its job.

Initially at least, the idea of combining JD and NO on one compilation is an attractive and sensible one: after all, one group emerged from the ashes of the other. It's a wonderful story which deserves to be told.

However, this collection, the latest in a long and pointless series, doesn't tell it. It feels like yet another bloody NO compilation (the seventh, if my memory serves) with a few JD tracks tacked on. No real thought has been put into the track selection, with no attempt to construct a narrative. So you get all the usual suspects, with the occasional oddity (eg Isolation) thrown in.

The best you can say about "Hellbent", the much-trumpeted unreleased "bonus" track is: "Move along, nothing to see here." It's a typically inconsequential, rather dispiriting guitar-driven mediocrity of the type that sadly came to embody the group in the period 2001 - 2006. Thin, blokey and unmemorable. I love(d) New Order. I saw them live 73 times between 1981 and 2006. But they went on too long (they should have called it a day after Reading 1998) and should never have made those last two feeble albums. This compilation is just another showcase for the group's post-"Republic" decline, a fall that was as sad as it was precipitous.

So, not much reason to buy, but there is one plus: the quality of the mastering here is very good, better than the "Singles" abomination or the flawed 2008 reissue campaign. The music on tracks 1 to 15 is magnificent, and sounds better than it has before (original vinyl pressings excepted, of course) thanks to Frank Arkwright's remastering. The sound quality on the stodge comprising tracks 16 to 18 is equally fine - if only they were worth listening to.

I was not expecting much from this release. I bought it because it was cheap, because there was an unreleased track on it and because I wanted a well-mastered CD copy of the rarer versions of the New Order tracks which are part of this compilation and which I had until now only owned on the original vinyl.

I listened to it in my car during a long and boring drive. Classic New Order has always been my favourite soundtrack for long journeys. It turned a boring drive into a journey of the mind and a lovely potted history of my favourite group.

I am well accustomed to hearing beautifully remastered versions of most of these Joy Division tracks as they have been re-released on so many different compilation albums over the last ten years, so no surprises here, but I thought the JD tracks - and indeed all of the tracks on this album - were very well chosen and the remastering at least as good as any that has so far been achieved.

The restoration on the older New Order tracks was startling. This compilation includes rarer original versions of the songs which have been largely overlooked since their vinyl releases in the early 1980s as the songs were subsequently re-recorded by the band with more poppy production. The production on these versions is cruder and the performance less honed, but the tracks' lack of commercial slickness reveals the raw spirit and soul of the songs. The digital remastering process has provided us with beautifully restored recordings rich in texture and raw detail. It's the aural equivalent of leaving an old coin in vinegar and pulling it out bright and shiny a few hours later, or watching an art restoration specialist painstakingly cleaning a classic painting to reveal new intensity and detail in the tones and colours.

Format: Audio CD
In 1987 there was "Substance". That had a point : most of New Order's singles at that point hadn't been on any album. In 1994 there was "(The Best Of)" which had a couple of re-recordings on. In 1995 there was "(The Rest Of)" which was a bunch of remixes. In 2002, there was "International". And "Retro". In 2006 we had "Singles". In 2011, we have "Total". And I have had enough.

There's one new song here which is thoroughly average b-side fodder. The rest of the music is brilliant. And since "Blue Monday" sold something like 3,000,000 12" singles, and is also on all six of the 'Best of' records, there must be about 20 people that don't have a New Order song in some form. This then, is for them. If you want an introduction to a now split-up band or don't own any of their stuff then this is for you. The rest of you, and the band, should know better.
