New Order are frequently described as "survivors." Presumably, this refers to their days as Joy Division, which tragically ended with the suicide of vocalist Ian Curtis. They endured with the addition of Gillian Gilbert on keyboards, while guitarist Bernard Sumner took over vocals. "Survivors" might also refer to their evolution from the guitar-based Post-Punk of Joy Division to the increasingly synthetic sounds of their later records. But their survival instincts are truly indicated by the adept way they have evolved along with pop (and specifically dance) music. When "Blue Monday" hit dance floors in 1983, its grim atmosphere cast a dim shadow over the flickering disco lights and became an anthem for club kids tired of Disco's naive, unyielding excesses. Their synthetic dirges were ubiquitous throughout the '80s. Their 1998 Trance remix of "Confusion" for the Blade soundtrack pits raw Electro sounds against bitter, fluid bass kicks. They have also maintained impeccable integrity keeping one foot in the mainstream and the other underground, generating colossal worldwide hits as well as disturbing, alienated tracks with depressive guitar echoes and sad synth melodies. Even their most elevated, ethereal moments are grounded in melancholy, but provide a vaulting spirit that gives solace to any wilted flower.

Okay so I recently obtained a German copy (RTD 50 LC 5661) with embossed letters on front cover. On the the back cover lies a signature, I was wondering if anyone could identify it, I would be so grateful. I made a picture of it my profile picture, but if you can't see it, let me know and I'll email it to ya.

My last review was written over 11 years ago!!! its amazing that such a great band, outputs masterpieces so sporadically.
Music Complete is a superb album, even without the original lineup.
One can only hope that it will not take them another 10 years to release a follow up album after Music Complete.
For now, we will have the comeback of this band in Vinyl, CD, and digital formats.
I opted for the special limited edition big box edition with the album and each song on extra vinyls, once again, designed by Peter Saville.

"Ceremony", my favorite rock song ( with "shadowplay" and many more by JD )

Saw them Playing at Moby's Area One, in the San Bernardino Desert, a real life changing experience. After other 80's bands, this is probably the biggest influence of all the music of the late 90's. Blue Monday such an avante garde manifestation of electronic music.
But still prefer the older material. Regret, and Price of Love, are two of my newest favourite songs.

The videos are amazing imagery, although hard to find.
Peter Saville the graphic designer for their album covers is maybe the biggest influence in music cover design in the world.
New Order are Here to Stay, forever.

What else there is to say about New Order that hasn't been said? Maybe that, more than any other band/project (save, maybe, for The Clash), they were responsible for bringing black-rooted dance and electronic music to a reluctant indie/alternative audience, making it more palatable to those kind of listeners. Bands like Underworld, Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, The Chemical Brothers et al have a lot to thank New Order for.
