With all the hype surrounding the break up of New Order and the rise of pseudo-super-group Bad Lieutenant I didn’t really know what to expect from Bernard Sumner’s new band. So when I got a listen to the first single off the new record I was very impressed. Obviously it’s not as good as Technique or Brotherhood-era New Order but I would certainly put it up there in the same category as Republic. I’m looking forward to hearing the rest of the album when it drops in the beginning of October.

  1. This is a great song, Bernard Sumner did it again, It stands right next to Regret, Crystal and Krafty which are NEW ORDER classics.
