Peter Hook seems to be making a career out of Joy Division retreads and this is yet another. Of the ten tracks on here there are 4 different versions (yes 4!) of Atmosphere and two each of Pictures in my Mind, New Dawn Fades and Insight - in each case consisting of a vocal version and an instrumental version with, in the case of Atmosphere, the addition of 2 "A Capella" versions (which are actually just the vocal tracks unaccompanied which is not my definition of A Capella!). So why as many as four stars? Because the music is unimpeachable, the performances are fine (especially the storming versions of New Dawn Fades) and, as the other reviewer says, it is really interesting to hear a female voice tackle Joy Division!

The Joy Division tracks with Rowetta singing are excellent and bring a fresh interpretation on classic songs. I saw them performed at the Lowry in 2011 and her performance was spine chilling and the highlight of an excellent show.

The rest of the CD consists of instrumental versions of the same songs and one punky track with Peter Hook signing, which doesn't do much for me.

So, while the new versions of Atmosphere, New Dawn Fades and Insight are something really special, I'm not sure the CD itself is value for money.

Fresh sounding, with the twang of Peter Hook's Bass Guitar.
Always loved Atmosphere. Rowena's Vocals are great.
The acapella versions are hauntingly cool
