This 2003 comment has been superceded by the subsequent release of the "deluxe" 2-disk version of the Movement album, which includes the 7" version of Temptation on CD2, though to these ears it sounds like a vinyl rip rather than taken from the master tapes...

This is a great little synthpop number, yet strangely it's never been anthologised. Its 12" equivalent has been, and so has the 1987 remake, yet not the original 7", which has a different feel to either of the more familiar versions (and no, it's not simply a cut-down version of the 12", it is a completely separate recording). Granted, it's not the best New Order single (by some distance), but it's still pretty good and deserves to be heard.
