Better versions of the songs which are already New Order's best; it's incredible. One of the reasons why NO's albums might not always seem up to snuff is that the music was designed, a great deal of it, for the dance floor, and you don't get the full effect sitting in front of your computer in a drafty aparment. These single mixes, though, are so powerful that you begin to get a sense of what it feels like to listen to them surrounded by a writhing crowd in the modern religious ceremony of choice. The versions of Perfect Kiss and Bizzare Love Triangle are the most notable. It's hard to imagine how they could have allowed the public to hear the album versions, knowing that the songs could have been this much more. The break to ecstatic organ at the end of TPK - it's one of those moments where you feel your feet lifting off the ground, and the bridge, deleted from the album version, offers the elusive meaning of the title - "The Perfect Kiss is the kiss of death" - a line that made this fan of Yukio Mishima smile. The mix of Subculture is comparatively weaker, with a lot of unnecesary effects and secondary vocals, but the power of the original song remains. The earlier songs have too much of the Joy Division flavor for my taste, but are still of interest; 'Shellshock' and 'True Faith' are excellent. I'm not so up on the second side, and the instrumental remix of 'Perfect Kiss' seems unneccesary, but even the first side would be worth the double price.
