This 16-track 1994 compilation is probably the best single-disc overview/introduction to New Order. Included here are the radio formats of "Shellshock", "Touched By The Hand Of God", 1990's "World In Motion", and "Blue Monday '88", all making it for the first time onto an official full-length release. However, the collection in my opinion is not a definitive Best Of, since some of the New Order's stand-out tracks (True Faith, Bizarre Love Triangle, and Round & Round) are featured in their alternative 1994 remixed versions, which are not by any means better than the splendid originals. The present collection was also released in America in 1995, but with a slightly different tracklisting; in particular the non-album track "Let's Go (Nothing For Me)" was included on the U.S. version. What I would really have liked to see here was a 2xCD set, with the first disc representing the original versions of the best tracks, and then a companion disc featuring the new mixes as well as some rarities. For example, they could have included the rare dub version of "Touched By The Hand Of God", hard-to-find club mixes of "Round and Round", or the instrumental version of "Vanishing Point".

I got this album when my curiosity for New Order's music restarted sometime around 1996, and was after a brief resume of a career which due to my age (then about 14, now 18) I had largely missed. The Best of served a purpose, and was an enjoyable listen. More than that in fact, a superb album. I loved the emotions of 'Thieves Like Us', the orgasmatronic 'Perfect Kiss' and the frankly awesome '1963' and 'Vanishing Point.'
So far, so good. Why only 3 stars, you may ask. The answer is this - the versions of these songs differ to many of the album versions. The 94 rehashes of 1963 and True Faith I consider to be sacrilege to the wonderful 12" versions found on Substance 1987. The version of 'Fine Time' is put to shame by the one off 'Technique' and quite why 'Blue Monday 88' is on the album and not the masterful and legendary original is beyond me.
The album has some nice non album additions on it, like 'World in Motion' and to some, I concede, 'Blue Monday 88.' 'Touched by the Hand of God' is probably the overall outstanding track on the album. However, on an album with versions of songs the quality of 'Thieves Like Us,' 'The Perfect Kiss,' 'Blue Monday,' and 'True Faith,' this properly demonstrates the true position of this album.
After the demise of Factory, this album smacks of London Records on a mony making exercise. Who in their right mind would put 'Ruined in a Day' on the Best of New Order? Other than a record company out for a quick buck, I can think of nobody.
Anyway, back to the point. For an introduction to the band, this is a reasonable start, and if you see this cheap in a bargain bucket somewhere, get it. For a real introduction though, get Substance 1987. 150 minutes of audial ecstasy (except 'State of the Nation' and 'Shellshock') and the best compilation album ever made. Get that instead.

New Order is a rather mysterious band in many ways. It has pre-history and continuing influence by groups such as Kraftwerk, Eno and the Velvet Underground, and various other experimental electronic-based European groups. It also has a strong shadow cast over it from Joy Division, an ironic name for a group whose leader (also the founder of New Order) Ian Curtis committed suicide. Enigmatic to the last, New Order members (who drift in and out of other band arrangements; the latest perhaps being Bernard Sumner's work with Electronic) tend to be less than specific when talking with the press, and their albums are conspicuously devoid of liner notes.
This CD, entitled (the best of) New Order for once contains some liner notes, which alas are disjointed, following the same fuzzy logic of information as in the past. The introduction states: 'This carefully selected commercial compilation of 16 such single-minded grouped and seductive songs of love, longing, life and belongings surely sums up the heartpounding pop life of this devious, uncomplicated pop group, uncertainly the most secretive of English groups, certainly the most surprising.'
Alas, not all that enlightening. Perhaps, given my mystical bent of mind, this is one of the reason why I enjoy New Order so much. Their music in came to life for me in London in the 1980s, and I have followed them ever since. Songs such as Bizarre Love Triangle and True Faith have been international club hits, and continue to be regulars on the playlists. Other songs, such as Blue Monday and Round and Round, have had new life breathed into them as remakes (the trend of groups to remake their own work is more prominent in certain Euro-pop groups than in other musical varieties).

A truly amazing compilation of pop songs that will never age. From the electro-rock of 'blue monday', to the magical bassline of 'regret', to the best football anthem ever 'world inmotion'. New Order had a knack of writing beautiful, emotional pop songs that you could dance to. Thank you Hooky, Barney, Gillian and Stephen!

This 16-track compilation is probably aimed at the casual fan aiming to get a taste of New Order. There isn't much in it to appeal to the hardcore fan.

It has all the songs you might expect - True Faith, Regret, Touched By the Hand of God and World in Motion. It is disappointing that the 1988 version of Blue Monday is included rather than the original.

The most interesting feature is the rather obtuse sleeve notes by Paul Morley.
