How ready can you get?, 4 Sep 2001
For a new New Order album, how ready could people that already knew the band be? Finally, after so long a wait, some of the best New Order material makes its way to the population. No, I'm not a Manchester ring-in, or wannabee. Get Ready, (and Crystal), have made it to the shores of Sydney, Australia, and not a moment too soon. I cannot believe just how beautiful Turn My Way is, and how different Crystal is to historical New Order singles, while still keeping the New Order feel and sound. While Rock the Shack may not really be what I'd expect from New Order, I'm happy enough that they have tried to vary themselves, in small quantities, with some Jam influences. This Album is not just another dole out of the same. Instead, it retains what the bands music and lyrics are all about, their distinct sound, and adds new layers and depth. To call it a mature sound is foolish, they already had a mature sound. This is New Order. There is always another layer, always just out of sight, until they themselves decide to let it slip...
