New Order ‎– Low-life

Genre:

Year:
Notes:
New Order's third album, released in May 1985. The only sleeve with the band actually on the cover, designed again by Peter Saville (2). They were photographed individually by using a Polaroid film (the band never really believed those photos would end up on the cover). The sleeve itself contained an onion skin obi.

Self-produced and recorded at Jam Studios and Britannia Row Studios in London. Notable are Love Vigilantes, a solid, purely guitar-driven narrative about a soldier presumed dead coming home, Elegia, featured in the John Hughes movie "Pretty In Pink" (but only Shell-Shock made it onto the Soundtrack) and also rumored to be an homage to Ian Curtis), as well as the two synth-driven tracks The Perfect Kiss (undoubtedly pop music's only frog sample solo) and Sub-Culture.

Some cassette issues include the The Perfect Kiss 12" version.

Peaked at #7 in the UK album charts.
Also ranked:
#50 in NME's list of the "Greatest Albums Of All Time" and #346 in "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" (2013)
#10 in Spin's list of the "25 Greatest Albums Of All Time" (April 1989)
#10 among The NME's "50 Greatest Albums Of The '80s": "The perfect rock album you could also dance to..." (1993)

In 2008 the album was re-released as 2×CD Collector's Edition set, with the bonus disc containing non-album singles, 12" mixes and b-sides.

Factory Australia's initial CD release was based on imported UK copies with "Factory Records Australasia IMPORT" stickers on front of the jewel case.

Excellent pressing. The original recording is brittle and tipped toward the high end, which sucks for all you Peter Hook fans. Remastered versions might pump up the bottom end. But the OP is quiet and quite nice, and the record itself is better than I remembered

are the versions of Salvation Theme and Let’s Go the same as those on the Salvation OST that wasn’t released til 1988? i know Let’s Go existed in various versions from around the time of Low-Life so i’m guessing Salvation Theme did too - presumably without a title unless some weird prescient naming was going on?

This album is a genuine classic. Pressing sounds fantastic in my opinion - open and dynamic. However, I had to replace as Elegia had really loud clicks for first minute until it builds to the best bit.

I bought this when it first came out. Sadly, I lost the obi... HOWEVER, it sounds as great today as it did over 30 years ago. I'm glad I took care of the vinyl. :-)

The best New Order album no doubt, with this they did a proper house cleaning and got rid of any Joy Division link. Every song is a celebration.
