The Killers. Interpol. Franz Ferdinand. Without New Order's influence they could have all ended up making albums of country & western ballads. Since the demise of Joy Division in 1980, the British synth-pop quartet has been diligently changing the course of popular music, lobbing unlikely but inventive hits like "Blue Monday" and "True Faith" into the charts. Twenty-five years on, New Order remains shockingly vital. Its eighth proper album overflows with shimmering melodies, anchored by Peter Hook's spine-tingling bass lines and Bernard Sumner's thin but emotive voice in thrilling new songs like "Krafty" and "Dracula's Castle." -- Aidin Vaziri --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

2- Hey Now What You Doing- Great song with a constant beat that keeps on going.4/5
3- Waiting For The Siren's Call- This would be my least favorite song on the album, but it is good no doubt about it 4/5
4- Krafty- The first single and it has a great beat with great simple lyrics by Bernard. Really stands out. 4.5/5
5- I Told You So- This song speaks for itself and the beat just makes you want to dance! 5/5
6- Morning Night And Day- Sounds Really good and theres nothing bad about it! more great lyrics and smooth riffs. 4/5

Ya ya I know, their 'comeback' album after an eight year absence was 'Get Ready', but that was merely shaking the rust off in comparison to this effort. Waiting for the Sirens' Call is easily their second best album of all time (Technique can't be touched).

Beautiful melodies, great production, and Peter Hook's amazing bass work come together to show case a band that sounds like they are just hitting their stride. I know that sounds ridiculous to a long time New Order fan, but would a newbie know otherwise? Would they be able to guess that their members are almost 50 yrs old and have been around as a group for almost 30 yrs (including Joy Division)? No way.

While some bands around for this long end up embarrassing themselves, New Order sound fresh and have put together their most cohesive effort. Not a dud in the bunch. No excuses or "hey they sound pretty good considering.." This work stands on its own. Who's Joe? was one of my favourite songs 2005. Turn, Morning Night & Day, ....k, i'll stop.

New Order fans - get this CD and give it repeated listens!

After listening to the preview clips for this album, I rushed in to my local Future Shop and bought this disc (on sale for $13.99) the day it came out. Although the clips gave me a sense of the album's melodies, a full listen reveals the top to bottom quality of this release. I have been a New Order fan since they rose from the ashes of Joy Division. Even so, I was shocked that 24 years on they are still capable of producing music of this quality. Some bands at the end of their careers produce albums that are, well, embarrassing. At the very least, their final efforts fail to stand up to their previous works. That is not the case with Waiting for the Sirens Call. New Order can proudly add this release to their collection and point to it as one of their strongest efforts of their long, and hopefully, continued career.
