Product Description

Amazon.ca

On Get Ready, New Order, the band who wrote the immediate future of electronic dance music on 1983's omnipotent "Blue Monday", return ready to rock--there's nothing vaguely Arthur Baker or Balearic here. For the most part, Get Ready keeps the keyboards trim and unobtrusive and revels in raw drums and wires; Bernard Sumner's funk-inclined, scratchy dog-with-fleas guitars; Peter Hook's shin-level punk bass lines; sinuous human greyhound Steve Morris--possibly the thinnest chap ever to grace a drum stool--kicking the machines into touch and keeping time with clockwork proficiency. All that, and those finely conceived bittersweet melodies, plus some questionable phrases: "It's like honey, you can't buy it with money" sings Sumner on the otherwise splendid "Crystal", a natural, guitar-rock pop-song successor to the mighty "Regret". And if "60 Miles an Hour" is a mite melodically predictable, then "Primitive Notion" is a thrilling throwback to Joy Division's "Heart and Soul". Try humming that bass line, tapping out that drum pattern and then compare the line "Don't look at me with your critical smile" to Ian Curtis's "I observe with a critical eye". Whatever, there's a cracking chorus right up there in the naggingly memorable "True Faith" / "Love Will Tear Us Apart" category. Of the much-publicised collaborations (the Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan, Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie) it's the lusty half-Stones/half-Stooges leather-trousered swagger of "Rock the Shack"--with the Primal Scream frontman mewing like a lecherous tomcat--which steals the limelight. But in the grand old tradition of leaving the best until last, "Run Wild" is perhaps New Order's most touching moment--folky acoustic guitar, lonesome sentiment, teardrop melodica, the line "If Jesus comes to take your hand, I won't let go" and warm strings sweeping in to offer support like the touch of a much-cherished comfort blanket. Get Ready is a great album, one which secures New Order's future far further than they could have imagined. --Kevin Maidment

5.0 out of 5 stars another gem in thier catalog Jan. 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
i have been a fan of NO since they were joy division back in the late 70's. and as a fan of both electronica(what new wave became) and rock, they have always fit the bill. sumners wonderful voice and plain delivery fit peter hook's prominant bass on the rock songs as well as the keyboards on the more electronic songs. this album is a return to the form of the earlier albums before they experimented with pure dance on the last couple of albums. any new NO release is a highly anticipated event. here's hoping that they continue to work together. if you like this, also check out all of thier side projects like electronic, monaco, revenge, the other two, etc.
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Love that album Oct. 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
Picked it up 2 years ago at music store after I heard one song on the radio "Crystal". How can New order be bad I told myself. I was not wrong since they're even better than in the '80s. I was hooked at first listening with their processed beats, nice guitar and synthesizer.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best album EVER... Sept. 21 2003
By H. Yu
Format:Audio CD
I have been a longtime fan of New Order, since high school as a matter of fact! I have everything from MOVEMENT through the RETRO box set. And yes, I have the SUBSTANCE compilation as well. Simply put, GET READY is the best collection of songs I've heard in the longest time! While some of the songs are rock and pop-oriented, some of the other songs are danceable as well. Each song is rich, melodic, and very fulfilling to the soul in its own sort of way. Albums like SUBSTANCE, TECHNIQUE, and REPUBLIC were more synthesizer-driven while GET READY has songs that just rock out! And then songs like "Crystal", "60 Miles An Hour", and "Someone Like You" make you want to dance. But I think the most touching song has to be "Run Wild" which is about keyboardist Gillian Gilbert and drummer Stephen Morris' young daughter, who has some sort of terminal disease (I could be wrong). In any case, I consider GET READY to be their best album to date! If you haven't bought it yet, get it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Band Will Never Die. Aug. 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have been a New Order fan for the longest time. Albums like Low-Life, Brotherhood, and PCL are the greatest albums of all time. I'm not saying they are the perfect band or the best lyricist, but on those albums you will find some gems that I think no other band from the 80s ever could make, such as Love Vigilantes. I was not too excited about the direction the band was going in with albums such as Technique and Republic, but I feel with this album they have made it just right. Please check out those older albums if you want to know what i'm talking about. I have waited for this kind of album from New Order for the longest time and hope this amazing band produce more gems for years to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Order are back - if they ever went away Aug. 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
I must admit although New Order were one of my favourite bands all through the eighties, I gave up on them when they released that awful song about British football that came from the so-so REPUBLIC ALBUM. But when I heard "Crystal", the single from this album I was instantly grabbed by the resurgence of New order's hook-laden sound, deceptively so simple, so easy to copy, yet so uniquely theirs that no-one CAN really copy it! GET READY is a good mix of harder rocking songs and technoish and melodic numbers. New Order have not been radical for a long time but they can still write a nice tune! This one gets a good flogging on my soundsystem and is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome cd July 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
I heard New Order's song "Crystal" on the radio about a year and a half ago and could never figure out who sang it. I browsed online for cd's and randomly found "Get Ready" by New Order, not knowing that "Crystal" was on it...after reviewing the few songs that I could on this site, I bought the cd and would have to say that I love it. New Order is an excellent band and the compiled music on this cd is superb. A must-by for any alternative rock fan.

New Orders latest album "Get Ready" flat our rocks. Since when did New Order have so much guitar in their music? I love it!
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.
