ps. i did think that the reviewer that was surprised that NO was making rock music and called NO a "techno" band was funny. NO was rock before they were ever dance. IE, joy divison
I like the processed beat of "Primitive notion" conjugued with the guitar, my favorite song. When I heard "Turn my way" I tought it was cool to sound like the "Samshing pumpkins". My second favorite is "Close range".
It was a great guess since all songs are good.
I will try to describe the majority of the album as guitar rock fused with dance music and 80's synth. This is my favorite New Order album. Truthfully I only own this one and "Republic", which was good but had too many dance songs, not enough guitar rock for me.
Bernard Sumner's lyrics and vocals are top notch. He even collaborates with Billy Corgan from The Smashing Pumpkins on one track, and I think 2 of the members of Primal Scream on another.
It is very refreshing to hear New Order come out with a cd that does not abandon their musical style, but also doesn't sound like it belongs in the 80's. It seemed like a New Order full of life and not like a band of aging musicians. From what I have heard of New Order this is their most rock-oriented album. Prior to this I bought "Twisted Tenderness"; it is an album by Electronic, which has the lead signer of New Order Bernard Sumner collaborating with the Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr. It also is a mixture of rock guitar and dance music. However, I feel that New Order's "Get Ready" is much heavier with layered guitars and huge beats.
I recommend this album and it has been spinning in my cd player at least once a week for the last year.
