5.0 out of 5 stars Music to treasure?, 14 Jun. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Music for Pleasure (Audio CD)
Whilst internal differences were making fresh material from New Order seem as likely as Carlisle United attracting Pele out of retirement, Peter Hook got on with what he knew best. Making music. And damn fine music it was too. Whilst Bernard Sumner co-founded Electronic....... Their debut 'Music for pleasure' had it all. Hookys trademark lead bass pounding at every opportunity, the tracks 'What do you want...', 'Shine' and 'Junk' were equal to anything latterly produced by New Order, lush electronic synthesizers and guitars abound. Minor complaints regarding Hooks attempte at lead vocals on 'Junk' and 'Sweet lips' soon paled by the beautiful 'Tender' and superb last track, the powerful instrumental 'Sedona'. Critics said Potts vocal style and deliverance were too close to Sumners (indeed a valid point but a criticism?!)and fair enough Hookys vocals are somewhat suspect. The point is being missed. Because any tracks on this album could easily grace a New Order album, and an excellent one at that. What higher recommendation? So sit back and enjoy. Still, now New Order are back together again what chance Pele for Carlisle?

Pele is apparently keen to sign, he has been seen staggering around Botchergate.
