I don't think Ian is mad at anyone, even though he was penniless when he committed suicide, and now the New Orders are very rich.
I'm on Hooky's side, if now she makes amends for Ian's death, I think it's late, however, a sign that the guilt has followed you all your life, at least she has shown she has it.
But for Ian's suicide, everyone, from the ex-factory, to Hannet, Da Rob, who joined him, RIP, to the group and everything that was in Ian's orbit, even Debbie, in one way or another Everyone knew about his condition, the fact of ignoring him was because he had to do that damned Tour in America. And I too, reading the various books, I noticed, especially in Jon Savage's, the impression and that everyone knew about Ian's condition, but they say: we knew how bad Ian was, but we were young, what we should have done, that we didn't It is certainly a reason that suffices to say, we are not to blame for his suicide, Debbie, has filed for divorce for the relationship between Annik and Ian, that if what this Reeder says, who represented the Factory in Germany, is true and that then she became Annik's boyfriend, she was Platonic, because when he got together with her he found her still a virgin, which means either that Annik is like the Madonna, or that Ian and her, have never "consumed" their relationship and if so, Debbie would have known, or perhaps even, she already knew, then, since she was his wife and knew him well, she could have asked for divorce, later on, if she really had to do it, not shortly after Ian's attempted suicide, as much as he attempted the overdose of barbiturs there are antiepileptics, and she took him to the hospital, And during the specialist's visit made with Tony Wilson, and others, what happened? Given his condition, he would have been hospitalized, but apparently, someone said something to that doctor. It has never been known what the specialist doctor said or did, but usually someone who tries to commit suicide, goes badly, and is not treated, he will almost certainly try again. So everyone knew, that he probably tried again, But the fucking tour in America had to be done, even at the cost of losing Ian. I don't remember who said it, but someone even hoped for his suicide in America, during the Tour, and if it were true, it would mean that Ian could commit suicide at any time, and everyone, even Annik, is guilty of Ian's suicide, to whom it is as if they had given him a loaded pistol, and said to him: do it !, but only after we had arrived in America. The more I read or hear news about Ian's suicide, the more I realize how easy it would have been, at least to lengthen his life, and aside from Hooky, who I hope, for what he didn't do, decided to do penance with his guilt, he has it, has always had it, and has obviously always weighed on it, Others, either don't have it, or prefer to take it to the grave.
We would never know what would have happened if Ian was still alive, maybe he would be a writer as Bernie thinks, maybe Joy Division would have gone on, and he would have made money too, and maybe now they would be a legendary group, maybe there would be it was the New Order anyway, because Ian had dumped them, or he would have died young, or formed another group, or had become a soloist, or a writer, or simply disappeared, and today we would say Ian who? It is true to say that JD was not only Ian, given the success of New Order, which means that everyone was a great musician, but without Ian, Warsaw, and then Joy Division would never have existed, his lyrics , damn beautiful and profound, his style, his dance that seemed to make fun of his epilepsy, the ability to be a leader in the most important and decisive moments. Would Bernie and Hooky have found a singer if he hadn't been there? and it would have brought him to the fore like him, with Ian the JDs that they would take, there would never have been Blue Monday, or True Faith, or instead they had another style, we would never know, because Ian committed suicide, but nobody has made sure that this didn't happen, I really hope in good faith, that nobody really realized what was happening.

in my humble opinion new order / joy division are the greatest band ever. Never has a band effected me through my whole life from my indie / alternative beginnings into my love affair with rave (particularly Detroit techno) and then back into live music after they reformed in the late 90’s. So many tunes are special to me from my discovery in 86 to the present day. They have kept me sane, kept me partying, looked after me in times of sadness and were the chosen music on my wedding day. Good bad happy sad they have been with me. They will never know how important they have been to me. For that reason along with my other favourites Underground Resistance, Drexciya , the Jesus and Mary Chain and Spacemen 3, I thank them.

obviously their best output was the 80's, they only done Republic in the 90's, 2 in the 00's, Get Ready(fine lp) Waiting For the Sirens Call and follow up to that Lost Sirens 2011(from same Sessions as WFTSC) but their 80's tunes you missed Confusion, state of the Nation,Love vigilantes, The Perfect Kiss, Bizarre Love Triangle, true faith, everythings gone green, age of consent, your perfect face, vanishing point, Sunrise, you get my point, but Bernards Lyrics aren't to your liking in comparison to Ian Curtis is laughable, there's no pleasing you & Hooky is a jealous little child running around crucifying their Legacy with his PH&TL i love Rowetta but her replacing the most haunting vocal ever put to vinyl is a piss take, poor Ian Curtis will be rotating violently in his grave!!

New Order are fine musicians who manage to make a quartet sound like an orchestra. (Miss ya Hooky!). That being said, Bernie's lyrics are silly and trite compared to Ian Curtis'. Their only real breakthroughs were Temptation and Blue Monday and their best days were in the eighties.

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.

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.
