Ignore the cover, this is what 'pop' should sound like.,

Fantastic album. The best Electronic / New Order album to date, only excelled by New Order's Get Ready. Moves on from the highly synthetic (but nevertheless pleasant sounding) debut album 'Electronic' and the subsequent Raise The Pressure to a much harder, rockier sound without loosing the sense of rhythm which appeals to me so much. Make it Happen with it heavy synth and guitar riffs is the highlight of the album followed by Prodigal Son, which is perhaps a bit too raucous, but features some brilliant guitar playing. Tales off a little towards the end with tracks which appear to carrying a 'message'.
Awful cover picture, quite likely to put first time buyers off, one does wonder what the reasoning behind it was. I would have knocked off a mark if the quality of the actual music had not been as good as it is.
