Product Description

Product Description

Following the release of TOTAL: From Joy Division To New Order in early 2011 and the surprise success of Lost Siren track "Hellbent", New Order are proud to announce the release of The Lost Sirens, an eight track mini album featuring Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook, Stephen Morris and Philip Cunningham. Featuring a truly eclectic mix of electronica and guitars in the way only New Order know how, The Lost Sirens features eight tracks which were recorded during the sessions for Waiting For The Sirens Call and are all previously unreleased. "Hellbent" features on The Lost Sirens in it’s original non-radio edit form (as per TOTAL) and "I Told You So" is a previously unreleased mix. This LP edition also includes the album on a bonus CD.

There was no reason to expect that these songs would be even half-good. The 8 years since the last album have seen two new compilations, one so-so side project (Bad Lieutenant) and one actively terrible one (Freebass), some unnecessary 12-inch vinyl single remixes, a set of botched album remasters, and worst of all, a public fall-out that puts the lie to the phrase 'there's no such thing as bad publicity'. Not for me to speculate on the reasons for the split, but Peter Hook, who used to be my favourite member of the band, hasn't passed by many opportunities to slate his former bandmates, despite being the first to leave. It reminds me of finishing with someone, then complaining when they get new friends and a new squeeze - get over it Peter, it's no longer your business! For a band who used to be 'cool' it's a complete turnaround. Until the 90s they were mysterious and it was difficult to find out anything about them. Now you wish they'd all just shut up. No wonder their popularity has eroded.

So, the album comes with low expectations, to put it mildly. Add to that that the last album (Sirens' Call) wasn't particularly well-received, and that these tracks are erroneously often presented as offcuts or outtakes (actually they were recorded at the same time but were supposed to be the core of the next album), why should you look any further?

Actually, I don't think Sirens' Call was a bad album - just a wildly inconsistent one - with some of their best ever tunes (title track, Turn, Who's Joe?) and some of their worst (Jetstream) along with a fair few that sounded like they were written by a different band entirely (I Told You So, Working Overtime). Overall, the album was let down by slightly flat, glossy production that smoothed out the rough edges too much.

Okay, so the original line-up split before this was released. Okay, so it could be interpreted as rejected tracks from 'Waiting for the Siren's Call' album. The reality is....a classic New Order album with all of the very traits we have come to know and love.

Ok so not outstanding, but not that bad either. Having assumed, following the band's split that there wouldn't be any new releases, this was a welcome bonus, like being reunited with a good friend you haven't seen in a few years. The relationship might not reach the heady heights that it once did, but it feels good to have them around.

I have been waiting for this album ever since 'Waiting for the Siren's call' and they mentioned in a NME interview they had enough tracks for another album. Well it was certainly worth the wait, and a great accompaniment to it's predecessor.

Perhaps a bit of a departure from some of their past songs but great listening with many sounds you will instantly know as New Order and like and others to listen to and grow into. Why criticise something a little different. If you only like the old songs just listen to the old albums. If you are a true New Order fan what's not to like.

Listened to this with some trepidation - only to be won over within about twenty seconds. These songs are far superior to majority of the album they failed to make. Full of creativity and interest that some of the latter-day NO output seemed to be lacking (at least to this life-long fan). God bless them for putting it out in spite of their recent (ahem) differences. The opposite of barrel-scraping.

By Mr. M. A. Reed TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 14 Jan. 2013

The album is dead, they tell you. Nobody listens to them anymore. But who has the patience to cherry pick a record, pay 99p for the best songs, and then fiddle around them on your iPhone? Who has the energy? I'm happy enough to just press "Play" on a title and let the rest of the songs follow. I might be old-fashioned, anarchronistic, or simply different, but an album is a selection by the artist (mostly). Cherry picking original songs might just be the equivalent of just selecting your best bits from a film and never watching anything else. And wondering if something else is missing : and make the Lord Of The Rings trilogy about 20 minutes long.

In this day and age then, you might question the point of "Lost Sirens", the latest / last New Order record. On its own merits, this is a short album - 38 minutes, 8 songs - and the shortest one New Order have made since their 1981 debut. It's history is also somewhat protracted - songs that were finished during the sessions for the 2005 "Waiting For The Sirens Call", and were intended to form the bulk of the next record, alongside any new songs completed after. The new songs never came. Peter Hook left the band along with several unreleased, finished songs, and New Order split for several years until a new, Hook-less version, reunited in 2011.

On first listen, these songs are a disappointment : trumpeted for many years, here they are and... they are a selection of eight pretty good New Order songs. Though missing an obvious, killer single, it is reminiscent of the mid Eighties New Order albums, in so much as it is made of solid, reliable songs, but no obvious works of genius that will instantly slot into the setlists forever.
