wink New Order

I was looking up Interpol on allmusic and that led me to Joy Division and subsequently to New Order. These guys are not discussed here enough. I only have Bizarre Love Triangle, True Faith and Regret on my itunes but I'm very tempted to get either Substance or their Best Of. Substance looks more complete and even has some JD tracks which I'm severely lacking on. Can't believe I don't have any CDs of these guys cos I'm usually all over danceable rock like DM, Killers (HF), 90s U2 etc.

Fans feel free to celebrate New Order here.

Seek out the album New Order - Singles. I think it is an import. It has the best collection of their more popular songs from early on until present. Good stuff! Too bad they recently announced they would not be making anymore music together, but it was a great run.

New Order

Edit: Singles is only $8.97 on Amazon. Great deal!!! Although it seems it ships in 1 to 2 weeks.

Dude, you NEED Subtstance. Probably one of the best singles collections ever.

Also, Power, Corruption, and Lies is pretty essential, if only for the brilliant "Age of Consent."

Their last album was pretty good, too. A little cheesier than some of their other work, but SO very catchy and definitely worth a purchase.

Great band. Probably better than Joy Division when everything's said and done.

Get "Get Ready." That's a great album. Billy Corgan appears on one song and the video for "Crystal" is what gave the Killers their name -- that's the name of the fake band that played in the video . . .

I adore both New Order & Joy Division.

Substance is a great 'Best of' especially as their singles weren't on (those days) their albums.

Funny, I just listened to Best of last night for the first time in ages.

I forgot how many good songs New Order has.

I just discovered Crystal last year, and it is probably my favorite of the newer New Order songs.

Also the Killers connection is kind of cool. I think there's a video on Youtube of Brandon Flowers singing Crystal live with New Order a couple years ago.

"Singles" is indeed more complete than even Substance, it seems! And it's only $8.97! Holy crap!!!

This is what allmusicguide thinks about Singles...

Now that Waiting for the Sirens' Call has been officially declared part of New Order's history, only eight months after release, it's time once again to reassess the group in the form of a mostly redundant compilation. Rhino calls Singles the group's "first ever career-spanning two-disc retrospective," but it's more like the group's first compilation to contain tracks from Sirens' Call. Besides, 1987's Substance spanned the group's career upon release and remains the basis for most New Order compilations (this one included), so it's no big deal. Just as importantly, over a third of the contents date from 1993 onward; that's too high a percentage to make the set an ideal introduction. Considering its title, Singles has a clear-cut purpose, unlike 2002's International. Then again, each of the 14 tracks contained on International are also here -- what amounts to an inferior version of Substance with some crucial tracks squeezed out in favor of lesser, later singles. A proper sequel to Substance, covering Technique through Sirens' Call, would've made more sense, but the lure in dressing up a combination of oft-recycled classics with slightly varying surroundings has yet to lose its appeal. Substance remains, and will likely always remain, the release to get you started.

They seem to prefer Substance overall.

new order is a brilliant band

i'm not too big on get ready, though. all the other albums are awesome though. waiting for the sirens' call is way too underrated. it's not my favourite album, but it is a great album.

Yes a fantastic band, sad they've broken up.

I actually think Get Ready is very underrated, some great rock' tune.

The only New Order album I like is Movement, and even then you can tell just one Joy Division song is equal to an entire New Order album - if not their entire discography!

I think Get Ready is very underrated as well. It's worth it just for the extended version of Crystal. The whole album is great...with the exception of Rock The Shack which is a bit grating.

Have you given songs like True Faith and Regret a chance? They're joy in the form of music.
