5.0 out of 5 stars "what a record!!!!", 3 Jan. 2002
This review is from: Get Ready (Audio CD)
WHAT A RECORD!! I love New Order music but, after the disappointing "Republic"(1993), I thought the band had nothing to say anymore.I was wrong: "Get Ready" is one of the best records ever made!
There is everything in it: Bernie's unique voice and lyrics, Hooky's bass, Joy Division riffs...that "New Order spirit" that makes even the simplest things sound GREAT!!
Ok..they're not great musicians,their songs are not particularly difficult but they've got a strength and a special something that you can't find anywhere else. New Order are just New Order:when they act seperately (Monaco, Electronic..)they are just "ok", but when they all get together they are simply SUPERB!!
Crystal" is one of those songs that makes you wonder all the time why you feel it's so special and why you keep on singing it 24h a day.
"60mph" is pure gorgeous pop!"Turn my way" is so strange and beautiful, while "Vicious Streak" is so catchy and intense. "Primitive Notion" is the perfect Joy Division single of the new millennium.
"Someone like you" is one of the best new wave songs ever written, maybe the highlight of the album,together with "Crystal", "Vicious streak" and the last two songs of the album: simply "delicious".
It's definitely the best New Order album(at least as good as"Tecnique"(1988).It's one of those records without a weak moment,that gives you a powerful,intense and emotional time:it's worth waiting for another 8 years if the result is another great album like this. Things change..but New Order are still New Order!!
