Notes:
The second album by New Order, released on 02 May 1983. With its electronic-based sound it marks the definitive turning away from the rather gloomy predecessor and the Joy Division legacy. The album was included in the top 100 albums of the 1980s lists in the Rolling Stone magazine.

Peter Saville's design for the album cover has a colour-based code, similar to the New Order singles Blue Monday and Confusion as well as the Section 25 album From The Hip. The decoding wheel is featured on the back cover (and on the cassette insert. The code on the front sleeve is "FACT 75". The code for the CD front cover is "FACD 75". The code for the inner sleeve is "New Order Power Corruption And Lies".
The inner sleeve is a reproduction of the painting "A Basket of Roses" by French artist Henri Fantin-Latour, found by Saville on a postcard bought at the National Gallery. His then girlfriend Martha Ladly asked him if he was going to use it for the cover and he then realised it was indeed a great idea.

The album cover was chosen by the Royal Mail for a set of "Classic Album Cover" postage stamps issued in January 2010.

Lovely remaster! Vinyl is dead silent. Cover reproduction seems accurate and the sound is much better than the cd remasters. Can't compare to a clean sounding original LP though.

I went to see the exhibition 20 July 2017 and there were copies left even though it is coming to the end of its run. They are strictly limited to one copy per person. If you are not able to attend the gallery has said they can do mail order by phone so don't give the flippers your hard earned cash. Its also a very good quality pressing and well worth shelling out a little extra for. Gallery exhibition is nice if you are walking by and want to drop in for 10 minutes but is probably not worth a special trip.

I have the Car Carry Case (floppy disk) that came with the cd when purchased. Seems to command some value.

Why not complete the trio? Completists, take note a final(?) time! The version of "Thieves Like Us - Instrumental" here is shorter than any other version, yet retains the same intro and "deconstructed" fadeout as the longer versions. I hope you kept both versions...

Completists take note, again! The version of "Murder" included here is slightly different from the versions available elsewhere. There is a count-in, and there a few more drum beats at the beginning of this version. The initial version of this cd had the version from the "Empire State" soundtrack, which is also the 12" version.

Completists take note: Track 2-7 is shorter on the corrected disc 2 than on the original version of the Collector's Edition, and shorter than the original 12"!

Erm, I actually own a copy - with the original Rough Trade press release. I value it more than a kidney!

From the very bass intro of "Age Of Consent", there is a mark of a pleasant starting point for New Order, audibly pretending as if this is the actual debut album of theirs. And partially it may be true. Previously trapped in Martin Hannett's production mould, with "Power Corruption & Lies" New Order do not hide they're finally on their own, free and happy, maybe not entirely singing like a bird (Barney's struggling not to sing out of tune, cute though) but playing like a flock of happy birds to the core, demonstrating the maturity in their sound, song by song heading in different directions. The dark-ish trademark of Morris' drumming and Hooky's stabbing basslines remains intact, but here the structures are more polished and upbeat with a touch of jazz-noir ("We All Stand", which is also dangerously close to the "Advantage"-era Clock DVA) and techno moments ("586", "The Village", "Ultraviolence" and "Ecstasy" all deriving echoes of the group's smash hit "Blue Monday"). "Your Silent Face" is a sad piece with a Kraftwerk-pastiche (the synth melody pleasantly reminds of the latter's "Europe Endless" and "Franz Schubert", in fact possibly a deliberate reference - in "Blue Monday" (and also here, on "586" after a baffling jam-session introduction) they borrowed a bit from the Düsseldorf foursome's "Uranium"). The closing number "Leave Me Alone", melancholic but full of optimism, makes a full circle. Unlike the one-dimensionality of "Movement", "Power, Corruption & Lies" is a downright eclectic affair, conceptually stronger, with a confusing yet iconic sleeve - in Peter Saville's own words, a techno-floral collection, that damn well stood the test of time and in great response to the chosen motif of Fantin-Latour.
