Your Silent Face by New Order (1983)
(Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert)

10.0 “Utterly perfect” Electronica
TJR saysFrom their second album “Power, Corruption And Lies” released in May, 1983. This breathtaking piece opened side two grandly, memorable for the luscious swells of synth, Bernard Sumner doing his Augustus Pablo on the melodica, a sweary word and Hook's masterclass in alternative bass economics. Their greatest track from their greatest album.

Temptation by New Order (1982)
(Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert)

10.0 “Utterly perfect” New Wave
TJR says7" single released in May, 1982, @ 33⅓ RPM to accommodate the 5½ minute runtime. This masterpiece was their 4th single already and their first to break the Top 30, peaking at #29.

Run by New Order (1989)
(Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert)

10.0 “Utterly perfect” Indie
TJR saysFrom their fifth album “Technique” released in January, 1989. It runs “P, C & L” close as the finest set in the catalogue, and this standout single is indiepop perfection personified, bursting out with gloriously moody melodies at every turn, of which there are many, as each group member takes it in turn to shine.

Age Of Consent by New Order (1983)
(Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert)

10.0 “Utterly perfect” Indie
TJR saysFrom their second album “Power, Corruption And Lies” released in May, 1983. Ultra rhythmic, the piece is underpinned by Peter Hook’s famous high-on-the-neck bass riff and Stephen Morris’ rollicking punch, baiting the others to match the adrenaline. Who can resist this indiepop masterpiece? Not I.

Blue Monday by New Order (1983)
(Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert)

10.0 “Utterly perfect” Alternative Dance
TJR says12" single released in March, 1983, giving them their first Top 10 success in the UK. With 700,000 copies sold, it still stands as the biggest selling 12" single of all-time.

Vanishing Point by New Order (1989)
(Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert)

10.0 “Utterly perfect” Alternative Dance
TJR saysFrom their fifth album “Technique” released in January, 1989. Club culture was dominant in Manchester at this time and New Order rose to the challenge splendidly.

Bizarre Love Triangle by New Order (1986)
(Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert)

9.9 “All-time classic” Alternative Dance
TJR saysFrom their fourth album “Brotherhood” released in September, 1986. Such an Annie Nightingale song as I remember it, the listenership requesting it every other week for what seemed like years on end. Only got to #56 in the UK pop chart - what was THAT all about?

Atmosphere [peel session] by New Order (1998)
(Ian Curtis, Peter Hook, Stephen Morris, Bernard Sumner)

9.8 “All-time classic” Moodcore
TJR saysRecorded on 24th November, 1998 and first aired on 30th December, 1998. The four were in the studio for this Christmas special, which featured lots of informal chat and 10 New Order songs all told, 5 of which were from the especially recorded career-retrospective session featuring 2 Joy Division and 3 New Order oldies.

Love Vigilantes by New Order (1985)
(Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert)

9.8 “All-time classic” Indie
TJR saysFrom their third album “Low-Life” released in May, 1985. Something a little bit different wasn't it? A soldier returns home from Vietnam to find his darling wife dead on the floor having committed suicide, having been mistakenly informed that her soldier boy had died. A heartbreaking tale of the unexpected from New Order!

Ceremony [12" 1st issue] by New Order (1981)
(Ian Curtis, Peter Hook, Stephen Morris, Bernard Sumner)

9.7 “All-time classic” Post-Punk
TJR says12" single released in March, 1981. Within days after the death of Ian Curtis in May, 1980, the three remaining members of Joy Division made a firm resolve to carry on, even if they were still very unsure of what the future may hold. Said Peter Hook: “I didn't think we stood a cat in hell's chance of getting anywher without Ian, I really didn't.” It was a bit of an ask to replace the enigmatic one but the debut single was an all-time classic and made #34 in the Pop Charts. They were on their way.
