4.0 out of 5 stars
they don't want to do what other people do, 13 Sep 2001
the fear with New Order's latest was that it would fall into the same category of Republic, where World and Regret stood out, but much of the rest was ordinary. It's thrilling to listen to Get Ready and hear a band that sound so fresh and melodic without sacrificing the world-weariness and acerbic lyrics that make them unique.
I love Electronic's eponymous album and some of their tracks since then, but it's terrific to hear Hooky's driving bass again
Hearing this album feels like being privy to a great band rediscovering their love and passion for what they do, it's a joy to witness.
