Curtis' vocals - the emotional depth he was able to bring to Closer - obviously couldn't be duplicated, although it sounds like the band is trying. Yet, there is a mechanical-computerized element in much of Movement that predates Blue Monday and which works quite well. Clearly, with the Bauhaus cover art and album title, New Order isn't just trying to recreate Joy Division. Even that exercise did yield good fruit, though. The song In a Lonely Place is great (the b-side for the band's first single).
Dreams Never End is similar to the original FAC 33 release of Ceremony. Both are excellent. (I prefer the original Ceremony to the version on Substance.)
The lyrics just seem like gibberish to me, they just evoke feelings and scenes but the interpretation is mostly in your head.
But be warned, this music is FATAL in its power of melancholy. Their friend and former band leader had just committed suicide so understandably they were in a mood of complete and utter despair when they made this album.
