Notes:
New Order's fifth studio album, released in January 1989 and their last album released on Factory.
Recorded on Ibiza and in Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios.
The album adds Balearic Beat and Acid House influences to the band's typical blend of electronic and rock. The cover is another Peter Saville (2)/Trevor Key cooperation, using a garden ornament cherub statue.

The first New Order album to reach number one in the UK charts. Several tracks were individually released as singles. An instrumental version of "Vanishing Point" was used on the BBC series Making Out.

Released in the US on 24 January 1989.

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

If I'm being honest it sounds just a shade better than my original CD. The CD sounds excellent, mind you. Just saying, this is overall a very well recorded album and it's splitting hairs which medium sounds best (it's all digital anyway). For SQ, Rhino vinyl wins by a sliver of its horn.

maybe their best album

a mix up of dance and alternative rock music

the opener is a dance acid song while the next song is alternative rock and more

I received a copy of this particular pressing as a hand-me-down from my dad's collection last spring, and overall it's not bad. Namely, the sound quality's pretty good, which complements the brilliant songwriting and production on the album itself.

Overall, if you can find a copy of this album at a good price and don't care about it being a reissue (as opposed to an original 1989 Factory/Qwest pressing), I'd say grab it.

One of the best sounding records in my collection. Great remaster and beautiful pressing. Almost no surface noise, you really only ever hear it in the silence between songs.

Some faint crackling on side A but nothing very bad. Considering that I only have a physical copy in the cassette format, this is a great vinyl to add to my collection.

One of those albums i listen to regularly since i first bought the cassette in the early 90's. My favourite and imho their best LP, every track is SUBLIME. People/Charts always prefer Low-life and i will never know why... New Order at their peak.
