  1. Obviously it's not perky enough, funky enough either, but their best (and third) album in 15 years (and probably last ever) sounds an awful lot like what kids today call pop.
  2. New Order roll out that trademark sound again, and it's never sounded stronger or more vigorous.... A stunning and confident return to form. [19 Oct 2001, p.80]
  3. Demonstrates a virility missing from [1993's "Republic"].
  4. The best tracks--"Crystal" and "Turn My Way"--sound like they were recorded in 1987.

    I'd have to rate this as highly as PC&L, and Technique - ahead of Republic, Movement, and well ahead of Brotherhood & Lowlife. there are a bunch of great tracks here & I really only skip track 3 because of Billy Corgan's additional vocals. Full Review »
