Let me just clear something up: New Order are not, nor have they ever been, a new wave synth-pop band. Their music inspired a lot of it, yes, and their most famous songs ('Bizarre Love Triangle', 'Blue Monday') were synth pop but the timelessness, power, emotion and innovation of their music has them being recognized now as easily one of the most respected, influential and popular bands of all time. Too much to be lumped in with some trendy garbage of the era. Their albums are modern classics.
It's too bad the sleeve for this album lost its magic in translation to cd format. The vinyl version of this album is stunning.
The music catches them wanting to ditch the heavy, stylized gloom of their Joy Division work and 'Movement'. Yet, they hadn't fully committed to making flat-out pop music like on every subsequent release. So every song bubbles with the sound of a psychedelic post-punk band with subtle programming echoing the New York City hip-hop and electro at the time. The lyrics are borderline incomprehensible, but they work because against the odds they evoke strong emotions, more so then on any other New Order album. The music is still overwhelmingly sad and joyous at the same time, a New Order trademark.
There are two very different versions of this album. The U.S. Warner release includes 'Blue Monday' and 'The Beach'. My problem with this version is that after the song 'Leave Me Alone' the album should just end, it's a natural and beautiful ending for the album, instead it jumps into a bouncy 7-minute electro workout 'The Beach'. It's just wrong!

This is a very good album, especially for those of us who came of age listening to Joy Division. In particular, it's an album that evokes a strange and almost sublime sense of nostalgia. Power Corruption and Lies achieves something quite rare in rock/pop music: sustained melancholia that it is never tacky, kitsch or heavy-handed. It's a subtle album best played when alone or with someone very close. The lyrics are mature and intelligent, and the production is first-rate. Good bass rifts complete the package.
Since this album was initially released on vinyl, it's no surprise the cover artwork is often mentioned. For those who have eyes to see it, the cover design tells you this is an album that takes its cues as much from art as from pop. It holds up remarkable well as a testament to the different - and higher - directions music took before the complete collapse of the industry into mindless irrelevance.

While Movement is an excellent record, the vocals and lyrics are like Joy Division watered-down. This record represents a clean break from the band's past, and more importantly, the songs are brilliant.
While the vocal ability of the singer is questionable, even with the heavy straining in Age of Consent, the songs are very appealing. I especially love The Village, Blue Monday, and Ecstasy. This record is one of the best of the 1980s. It stands head and shoulders above most other New Order records (especially Brotherhood), although Technique is pretty good.
The only sore spot on the CD is "The Beach" - which wasn't on the LP I gather. It doesn't belong on the CD - at least not without a big "empty space" between it and the true last song.

For new order's second studio LP they really came into their own as a band. Though traces of their previous incarnation, Joy Division, can still be heard, here their bold new sound really comes forth. This is a classic album that is beautiful to hear.

this is one of my favorite albums of all time. (look in my "so you want to..." lists to see what accompanies it if you want to). I'll tell you what about 1/2 of the other reviews already have, and that is that the original album didn't include "blue monday" or "the beach". it's true that the album does flow together more smoothly without them, but they aren't entirely unwelcome (though the last song really SHOULD be "leave me alone"; it's like adding something on after "some girls are bigger than others", know what i mean?) this is very moving music that never, ever feels smarmy. it's cold and detached while being warm and involving. i know that sounds impossable, but it's true. ok, yeah, as previously indicated, "age of consent", "the village", "your silent face", and "leave me alone" really are the best songs on the album, but the others aren't bad songs at all, it's just that these songs are so superb. these songs are all etheral stunners, and this album was the first masterpiece of the new genre.
