Product Description

Amazon.ca

With the 1985 release of Low Life, New Order put forth their most commercially accessible effort to date. While some of the dark-wave drippings of their Joy Division roots are evident, high-energy progressions, which would carry them for years to come, began to emerge here. Hits like "Perfect Kiss" and "Sub-Culture", with their synth hooks, club-stomping accents, and visceral lyrics, helped bridge the gap for growing synth-pop audiences who bolstered their success. Other refined techniques on the album became standard New Order conventions: sweeping analogue rolls, live and sequenced drum percussion, tight bass melodies, and edgy guitar leads. Sustained by a peerless level of emotional involvement, the vocals and lyrics further entice the listener with the obliquely nuanced style of Bernard Sumner. Standing the test of time, this release is a must-have in order to understand the origins of introspective pop-wave culture. --Lucas Hilbert

Format: Audio CD
With "The Perfect Kiss" New Order said thank you and bade farewell to Ian Curtis, and while continuing to pay tribute to this genuinely tragic and astoundingly creative young suicide by carrying forth with the musical innovations he inspired, the band firmly established on this album its own indentity and pierced the hearts of countless young people. I wore out three copies of the vinyl record at dance parties at home during the years when New Order defined New Wave, and these songs still have the power they had when released eighteen years ago. My personal favourite is "Sunrise", but there isn't a track on this album (now CD) that should be missed. Play it loud!

I still find myself enjoying the deep lyrics and melody of these songs. One of the most influencial albums in my life.

I did not even know about this band. I got this album for the track "eligia" after hearing it in the MGSV trailer. The rest of the album turned out to be pretty nice, except for one or two tracks.
