I was not expecting much from this release. I bought it because it was cheap, because there was an unreleased track on it and because I wanted a well-mastered CD copy of the rarer versions of the New Order tracks which are part of this compilation and which I had until now only owned on the original vinyl.

I listened to it in my car during a long and boring drive. Classic New Order has always been my favourite soundtrack for long journeys. It turned a boring drive into a journey of the mind and a lovely potted history of my favourite group.

I am well accustomed to hearing beautifully remastered versions of most of these Joy Division tracks as they have been re-released on so many different compilation albums over the last ten years, so no surprises here, but I thought the JD tracks - and indeed all of the tracks on this album - were very well chosen and the remastering at least as good as any that has so far been achieved.

The restoration on the older New Order tracks was startling. This compilation includes rarer original versions of the songs which have been largely overlooked since their vinyl releases in the early 1980s as the songs were subsequently re-recorded by the band with more poppy production. The production on these versions is cruder and the performance less honed, but the tracks' lack of commercial slickness reveals the raw spirit and soul of the songs. The digital remastering process has provided us with beautifully restored recordings rich in texture and raw detail. It's the aural equivalent of leaving an old coin in vinegar and pulling it out bright and shiny a few hours later, or watching an art restoration specialist painstakingly cleaning a classic painting to reveal new intensity and detail in the tones and colours.

Not necessarily for the track selection, which is is excellent actually, but by virtue of the fact that this is the best remastered CD of any Joy Division/New Order CD to date. The fiasco that was the 2008 New Order reissues has probably taught the record company a lesson in how to handle releases, and is certainly a far cry from the disastrous ear-splitting, dynamics-crushing Singles release from 2005.

For anyone, especially younger people who are just starting to discover Joy Division and New Order, and the joy that their uplifting, sometimes broody synth-pop music brings, this 2011 compilation does the job in providing a good introduction to both.

The 18 track album, not only has excellent remastered sound quality, it was the first to contain songs from each of these two bands on the one collection. The result is like owning two mini greatest-hits sets, although Joy Division is represented with only five songs, whereas the remaining thirteen are from New Order. As a bonus for those who already have these songs, at least one of them is a previously unreleased New Order track, 'Hellbentk'.

All of the really famous hits from each of these groups are here, and who can resist the indie-anthem 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' (one of my all-time favourites), 'True Faith', and 'Regret'? These highly influential post-punk groups made some timeless music which will always be the history books, and continue to inspire young people today.

You could say that 'Total: From Joy to Division to New Order' is nothing really more than a cash-in, but if you don't already own an album by them, the quality of both the music and the track listing, really makes it a damn good one. Devoted fans will only need download 'Hellbentk' though.

By Mr. M. A. Reed TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 Jun. 2011
Format: Audio CD
In 1987 there was "Substance". That had a point : most of New Order's singles at that point hadn't been on any album. In 1994 there was "(The Best Of)" which had a couple of re-recordings on. In 1995 there was "(The Rest Of)" which was a bunch of remixes. In 2002, there was "International". And "Retro". In 2006 we had "Singles". In 2011, we have "Total". And I have had enough.

There's one new song here which is thoroughly average b-side fodder. The rest of the music is brilliant. And since "Blue Monday" sold something like 3,000,000 12" singles, and is also on all six of the 'Best of' records, there must be about 20 people that don't have a New Order song in some form. This then, is for them. If you want an introduction to a now split-up band or don't own any of their stuff then this is for you. The rest of you, and the band, should know better.

Listen, this release is awesome, there are versions on here that have never been released on CD before.

"In a bid to offer existing fans something new compared to previously existing compilations the album included four never-before on CD versions of the bands tracks, including the original 7″ version of "True Faith" and Shep Pettibone's 7″ remix of "Bizarre Love Triangle". It also includes the shorter 4:24 edit of "The Perfect Kiss". All tracks were mastered from original source tapes by Frank Arkwright."

The sound quality is crisp, clean, nice bass, basically it is not brick walled and all the details are separate as it should be. It seems these days digital remastering is getting better and better in sound quality. People are finally learning how to do it right. Yay! All the Joy Division tracks sound great. And you can tell this is a new digital remaster. Better than even the most decent previous efforts on New Order and Joy Division re-releases and best of's.

Anyone ever wish that the Shep Pettibone 12" Remix of 'Bizarre Love Triangle' were also mixed in to a shorter 7" edit? Because that remix is damn long. Well, there actually was a 7" remix edit released back then. And it's here on CD for the first time. And it's not found on any other past New Order best of compilations. I always prefered Shep Pettibone's extended Remix of 'Bizarre Love Triangle' over the shorter original album version. I had no idea there was an edit of the Shep Pettibone 12" remix. I am so excited about this. It is far superior if you ask me, since the original version is missing some very important parts.

And how about 'True Faith'? Anyone ever feel that all the versions of that song were too long? I had always wished for a shorter edited version. Well it exists!
