New Order fans have waited a long time for a new release from New Order. This one does not disappoint. Great songs performed while Peter Hook was still in the band.

I must say on first listen I wasn't that impressed... by being a huge New Order fan, I played it again, now I love this LP. I truly grows on you with every listen. Don't let any negative comments shy you away from giving it a listen. It is now, in my opionion "VERY GOOD !"

Only 8 songs but 3 are absolute hidden gems! So exciting to discover new NO music!. Tracks 1, 4 and 5 are awesome. Have come to appreciate Hooky late in life. Another great bassist from the 80s is Paul Webb of Talk Talk. Enjoy.

Lost and Found Jan. 19 2013
By R. M. Ettinger - Published on Amazon.com
Technically 'Lost Sirens' is a new album by New Order. Actually, the songs are old(er).

All eight songs were recorded during 2005's 'Waiting for the Siren's Call' (one of their overall best disks) sessions. While not included on that eight year old disk, the intent was to include them on the follow-up, which never happened.

In the last half decade (plus), Peter Hook allegedly left the band in 2007 and Bernard Sumner said he no longer wanted to work with / as New Order. In 2011, some of the original members reunited along with a new member or two.

I'd say 'Lost Sirens' was released quietly, but it is the U.S. and unless you spend your time in dance clubs (I do not), where else would you know that New Order had "new" music?

...and it is New Order, so while I enjoy their sound, it is not radically different album to album - and 'Lost Sirens' is no exception. Overall.

Starting off with "I'll Stay With You", it is classic / typical Order. Not a bad thing. The light guitar and the underlying synth, the similar drum beat and the all too familiar Sumner vocals. It is like visiting a good friend. Comforting and no surprises. As stated, this is not a bad thing.

Ditto with "Surgarcane" "I've Got a Feeling" is good enough, but nothing you're going to remember forever. ....and let's face it, I remember a lot of their music.

The two most interesting songs are "Hellbent" and and the very moody "I Told You So".
"Hellbent" has way more guitar on it than most songs they've ever recorded. This is a good thing. "I Told You So" has an early New Order or even Joy Division feel to it. It is a good album closer.

Like any album, there are a few clunkers - but when you only have eight songs on a disk, you shouldn't have more than one. They do.

"Shake it Up" starts sooooo badly. You almost have to get to the two minute mark before it hits its stride. But I like it after that. Still two minutes is a long time to wait.

"California Grass" kind of bores me. To take a line from the song itself "I can't describe", but it just kind of sits there. There is a late '60s vocal vibe that runs through it, maybe to emulate music coming from that state back at that time. Or maybe I'm must thinking too much about it.

As it stands, 'Lost Sirens' isn't bad, but it is not standing up there with their stellar work. You can see why they opted not to include some of these songs on the original release, but some of them could have easily fit into that playlist.

Yet, I bought it, because I think I've purchased every new release New Order has put out. And even if some of the songs aren't stellar, they are better than most things that hit the airwaves, so why not give it a chance.

I suppose that is the good thing about iTunes and amazon - you can purchase individual tracks, but I'm still a full album guy.

A good album (or very good, given the circumstances) Feb. 11 2013
By Tony S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a solid effort by New Order, which is made even better if we consider that the songs included here are leftovers from their last proper album (Waiting for the Sirens' Call - WftSC). It serves as a reminder of the greatness that was (is?) New Order, and makes us miss them more. Furthermore, considering that WftSC was a rather uneven album, this new offering is, probably, better than it.

This is a rather short album, with 8 songs, including a mix of an already released track. I do not think that it was ever finished properly: the songs all sound fine, but they are more straight forward rock offerings compared to the traditional NO efforts. Maybe they were meant to be the perfect-sounding demos, waiting for a rich production, to elevate them to the level of Technique or Republic. We'll never know, I guess.

Nevertheless, what we have here are 8 solid tracks that add to the legend of the band. Personally, I find Recoil to be the standout track, followed closely by Sugarcane, and I was extremely impressed by the mix of 'I told you so': New Order meet Venus in Furs (Velvet U) to give us an outstanding Spiritualized-sounding track. Everything else is solid though, starting track 'I'll stay with you' brings back memories of Regrets, California Grass is outstanding in its simplicity, everything is fine.

I remain unconvinced that New Order is not the best band ever, and I hope that they can put their personal issues aside and grace us with another offering.

Leftover songs from Waiting for the Sirens Call that did not make the first cut. All in all a good up tempo release for New Order.

Better late than never Oct. 7 2013
By MisaelART - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A bit of a mixed bag, basically consisting of outtakes from their final album together 2005's(!) Waiting for the Sirens Call. Most are b-side material, however, there are two tracks that are absolutely necessary; I'll Stay With You and I've Got A Feeling: Both are terrific N/O tracks in a similar vein to their last two albums; Get Ready and 'Sirens. There are also two original mixes that are quite interesting: I Told You So and Hellbent, although, I personally prefer the original of 'Told and vastly prefer the previously released "remix" of Hellbent that appeared on the recent N/O compilation Total. Still, a must for fans and always great to have some "new" material from them!
