    for a band that have done so much hits and returned in 2001 with such a great and inspired album (called Get Ready), this one is really awful. i can only describe as "poor pop". maybe "krafty" is the only song that survive from this bad album.

    How the mighty have fallen! WAITING FOR THE SIRENS' CALL, unfortunately, lacks any semblance of inspiration or passion. Barney and Mr. Hook have never sounded more generic; New Order have made an album that is as vapid, dull and thoroughly uninteresting as the lyrics to "Krafty." Avoid this one at all costs.

    Touted as half 'Get Ready', half 'Technique', it lives up to every predictable stylistic retread that entails, to the point of self-parody.... Thank Christ, then, that the songs are so good. [26 Mar 2005, p.49]

    Zigzags between immensely beautiful and crushingly ordinary with disorienting regularity. [May 2005, p.122]
  3. Their best since Technique.
