The definitive compilation of early New Order singles,

New Order's own record company boss once said that "they don't know how to make good albums yet - just brilliant singles". Can't disagree with the latter sentiment. Originally released in 1987, this is an essential collection of New Order's 12" singles up to and including that year, complete with the B sides on a 2nd CD. "Thieves Like Us", "Perfect Kiss" and "Shellshock" really should be in everyone's record collection. A must-have compilation if you missed the singles first time around - just beware one thing: Rather than being the stunning minimalist original, "Confusion" is a ghastly late-80's "remix", with all the timeless quality of, say, Jellybean. You still have to buy it though.
