Regarding the inner sleeves, it's worth noting that there are actually two quite different shades of blue...

The quintessence of New Order in 8:46. Sheer perfection in music and design.

I agree with Spacemoth below - this is a real masterpiece, a stroke of genius from a band at the top of their game. Brilliant piece of music.

2015: Thirty years later - just look at how far New Order have fallen.........reduced to mere middle-aged shadows of their former selves with records that have become increasingly unessential [from 2005's '....Siren's Call' onwards and countless shoddy compilations / repackages with errors aplenty]. Re-evaluate this simplistically towering masterpiece - and remember their halcyon period this way.
