New Order ‎– Everythings Gone Green

Notes:
New Order's third single, issued by Factory Benelux.
Here, the A-side was the B-side to Procession (Fac 53).
It was their first recording to feature a sequencer, later becoming a defining part of their sound. Last work to be produced by Martin Hannett.
Due to a mix-up on the sleeve, the two B-side tracks had their titles transposed: Cries And Whispers is mis-titled Mesh and Mesh is mis-titled Cries And Whispers. This was carried over to the Substance 1987 compilation, which was never corrected in the years that it was in print.

There are several versions of this release existing:
The original 1981 edition has grey/white/blue labels and cat# FBNL8.
The 1986 reissues have grey/white/red labels and cat# FBN 8.
The 1987 reissue has light orange labels and red lettering and cat# FBN 8.

The art work is different on the remaster the design goes right hand corner to left hand which is opposite way round. Sound quality is fantastic.

excellent pressing, nice attention to detail regarding the sleeve/artwork/graphic design. Re-issue like it should be.

Just like the reissue of "Ceremony" last week, I'm very happy with this purchase. My copy is sturdy and flat with absolutely no surface noise. The remaster is full and crisp, definitely the best these tracks have ever sounded. The inner and outer artwork is faithfully reproduced on a nice stock.

cries and whispers is the greatest song theyve ever made..now its alot different than what they are known to be..but at this time they are still trying to find their sound.

Everything you'd expect from early New Order - pulsating rhythm, rousing synths, distanced vocals, plus a sound that was somewhere in between Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet - 'Everything's Gone Green' represents a band that is literally getting over their punk roots and determined to carve their own niche in the industry. One of the most endearing elements of New Order's music during this time is the fact that they weren't entirely out of the Joy Division shadow but weren't exactly the New Order they'd become either; hence their sound met half way between organic rawness and electronic overtones. When considering the virtually inane lyrics, relentless beat and its reliance on the lengthy jams, one could just as well call 'Everything's Gone Green' as the forerunner to 'Blue Monday' that would emerge two years later.
