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.

Alot of people like this album but personally, I think it's too murky and sounds like a third Joy Division album if Ian Curtis killed himse- wait a minute...

Clearly more than the 300 mentioned here were made. I also bought mine from a non-HMV store; the now defunct Rise in Bristol. All other descriptors are exactly the same, apart from the HMV a sticker, so it’s the same pressing.

The best album either bands ever did. As far as this being the 'difficult' New Order album, I'd say compared to this, every other one of New Order albums are the difficult ones!

No one knows what a Third Joy Division album may have sounded like but it would certainly have sounded closer (no pun intended) to this album than Power Corruption & Lies. Sure the band had to move on and let’s face it was a financially a good move to do so. But in the end no New Order album bettered the two Joy Division albums and from that one must conclude that this album that seems to get lost between the two careers is in fact the best New Order album.

The sound is perfect, but in my copy is an unusual rhythmic magnetic noise, it sounds like LP hum a bit.

My pressing seems to have odd little distortions here and there, however, zero surface noise. Overall it sounds pretty good, nothing mind blowing; leaning more towards the side of a solid pressing. New Order rules though!

No title on the spine, like the first press... "repress" ? I don't think!
