The singles Fine Time, Run and Round and Round have had plenty of good reviews elsewhere so I'll concentrate on the last three songs which are my personal favourites:

Mr Disco. Very danceable with a great orchestral syth crescendo after the first chorus. it may sound a bit dated if you hear it for the first time now though

Vanishing Point. This is a more mellow synth based song. It has the trademark New Order guitar and a very dreamy pad syth towards the end.

Dream Attack: The final song of the album. This is a guitar based song. It ends with a brillaint guitar solo with some fill in orchestral synths.

Overall I'd say this is most definitely my favourite New Order album.

Technique", meanwhile, is possibly the finest single New Order album there is. It straddles, effortlessly, the gulf between euphoric/melancholic guitar-disco in a way that thrillingly combines the possibility of man and drum machine in perfect harmony, as well as moving towards some of the bands more traditional group work. It kicks off with the All Guns Blazing, definitive balaeric beat of "Fine Time", if nothing, a daft, silly, brilliant song about sex, complete with rampant drums, overloaded kitchen sink bleeps and bloops, random guitar swipes, and a general air of hands-in-the-air craziness. It makes perfect sense at 4am in 1989, and it makes sense now. The other thirty five minutes are equally exciting : a particularly English blend of joy and joy division, with material that offers consistently excellent song writing and immaculate production, as well as far outstripping almost every other act of the time in terms of imagination, innovation, and independence. Side two operates at a high point, with "Vanishing Point", "Mr Disco", and the glorious prog-rock snippet of "Run" that forms a cohesive, definitive New order album, ,demonstrating their work at the height of their abilities. If you own nothing else of theirs, start here.

The bonus disc, true to form with the rest of the set, fails to satisfy the knowledgable fans of the band. Despite canvassing fan opinion, the finished product appears to ignore completely any suggestions. Despite several live shows from their career being prepared for release and on the cusp of inclusion, "Technique" again features a selection of meandering instrumental bsides, stodgy remixes, and absolutely nothing of interest to anyone who bought the records when they came out. Even well known unreleased track "The Happy One"is omitted.

Well it's a toss up between this and 'Power, Corruption and Lies' for the best New Order album. For the 'Blue Monday' fans 'Power....' is the best bet, but if you're looking for a more upbeat, dance orientated album, then this is your one.
This is my fave New Order album. The opener 'Fine Time' is one of my favourite New Order tracks. Starting off with a thumping 4/4 beat it builds into an eletronic bassline driven song which filled the dancefloors back in 1989.
The rest of the album is a heady mix of classic pop songs and guitar laden, dance tracks. Very upbeat sounding but when you listen tot he lyrics you understand it is not too upbeat, it wouldn't be New Order if it was!
The album finishes with 'Dream Attack' which is another gem, a guitar intro which flows into a full flowing, beautiful pop song.

This is simply the finest album you can buy around this time period, its the pinnicle of new orders career, if you have purchased one of there best ofs and are thinking of getting an album then make this your nuber one purchase,

Its a happy feel good album (recorded in ibiza) that encapulates the "madchester" era, and was released 12 months before the stone roses/happy mondays etc made their mark,

stand out tracks are "love less", "mr disco" and "dream attack", the fact that none of these tracks were ever released as singles annoys me to this day

It really shows that this was recorded in Ibiza - a summer vibe is evident throughout. From the beer-and-ice-lollies-at-midday feel of Fine Time and the sunset/dusk theme of Guilty Partner to the poolside-in-the-late-morning vibe that pervades the wonderful Dream Attack (where Bernard Sumner's impeccable vocals manage, incredibly, to sound even better than usual), this is an album that warms your heart and soul and leads you to believe that life's OK after all. If you're going somewhere hot on holiday this year, don't leave home without this.

If you like New Order, this is their best album.
Released in '89 at the height of the acid rave revolution and on the crest on that scene's crossover to guitar music, its a landmark classic that will never loose its appeal.
Its use on the BBC series 'Making Out' was particularly poignant in the 1990 setting of Northern industrial England.
A must buy for anyone who liked any of their other stuff from Blue Monday, Bizzarre Love Triangle, True Faith to Regret.
Vanishing Point is my personal high on the album.

Overall a good collectors edition. The extra disc has cracking tracks that are well worth the extra couple of quid . My only gripe is with cd1 (original album). The sound quality has a lot to be desired. This is meant to be a re-master but I remain unconvinced. Flat, dull high and low end frequencies. Shame as this is a seminal album that shouldve been treated with more respect.
