A broken paradise for weirdos and such
on 8 November 2000
It's not hard to see why 'Brotherhood' is New Order's most under-rated album, it being the follow up to the exhilarating 'Low-life' as well as the pre-cursor to 'Technique', both widely regarded as their best work to date. But this album simply cannot be ignored. Setting aside the classic 'Bizarre Love Triangle' (if such a thing can be done) standout tracks include 'Paradise', 'Broken Promise' and 'Every Little Counts'.As a whole the album tries to blend a mixture of their electronic sound with acoustic guitar, thereby laying the musical & lyrical foundations for what would later culminate in 'Technique'.An ambitious album by a band known for experimenting and exploring different musical landscapes, breaking new ground in the process.
