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 singles Blue Monday and Confusion as well as to the album Section 25 - 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 reads "New Order Power Corruption And Lies".

The cover features a reproduction of the painting "A Basket of Roses" by French artist Henri Fantin-Latour, which Saville found on a postcard he bought at the National Gallery. His then girlfriend Martha Ladly (of Martha & The Muffins) asked him if he was going to use it for the cover. He then realised it was 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.
