Notes:
New Order's debut album, often referred to as being the "difficult one". Released in the UK on 19 November 1981 and produced by Martin Hannett in the Strawberry Studios, Stockport.

The artwork, done by Peter Saville (2), is based on a poster by Italian Futurist Fortunato Depero for the 1932 exposition "Futurismo Trentino". Saville adapted it so that the F stands for Factory and the L (Roman numeral) for 50. The album colour in the UK was blue with blue artwork, while in the US it was white with burgundy artwork.

The album peaked at # 30 in the UK album charts.

Peter Hook sings on "Dreams Never End" and "Doubts Even Here", and Gillian Gilbert providing the voiceover on the latter.

My version has same label#, barcode# and matrix# on CD, but the cover is a single sheet with print on the front only, and the tray insert is only printed on the back. Inside is completely white. CD was bought sealed, so this is another official version without catalog insert.

I was initially excited to have the 2nd disc of singles and b-sides, esp. Tempatation 7" which --as far as I know, was never released on CD. Much to my chagrin --the remastering is way too loud and compressed, and loses all the dynamics. Another victim of The (Unending) Loudness Wars. The album it's self is not quite so compressed, but I'm disappointed with this release.

A bit weird, the're supposed to have been 300 copies printed.. How come there is 267 people on Discogs own copies? And also I was told that some shops in Germany had numerous copies on sale at they're strores...I got my copy from Oxford Street, an it has a hmv sticker . Could there be a few bootlegs around?

How do I know which pressing I have!? There are no details on this cover or label (surprise surprise for a New Order record). All I can see is “Fact 50 b3 TOWNHOUSE” in the run-off of side 2.

I always thought of this as a low-fi album, but that's because I mainly listened to my copy of this on cassette. This pressing sounds great. Dense, yes, but with a huge and dynamic sound on a well-setup system.

Bought this record new in early 1984 when 'Blue Monday' had set me on track discovering New Order and Joy Division.

The 12" version of "Temptation" on disc two has a longer intro than other versions the song. Specifically, you can hear the sequencer before Bernard starts singing, whereas on other versions, the two come up in the mix together.
