As usual I will have to agree with Bernard. He makes arithmetic more fun simply by singing about it ,and when he includes birds ,skies,and beer I'm all in.
Hey , calculus, cosmology ( not cosmetology) and astrophysics are more popular thanks to NO.
And politics needs growling raunchy butch slapping monster jams,instead of hairy sissy little metal prancing gigolos emoting like goats
Who in their right miind could possibly prefer noise by bc/dc, oxxy, metaldearh Julus prick ,or pissy bohunk. Me ,i like my hard noise by New Order. Just 2 more awesome songs by the fab 4, now fab 5

Someone Like You + Close Range reviews now posted.

...including a digression on the idea of a Substance II.

Someone Like You is a bit meh for me.It's not bad but it's not great either.Some likeable parts but not a life changing New Order song.And i always heard "we're children on holiday, here comes a cloud".Same with Close Range though i've often thought there's some great melodies & ideas not completely realised on that track.


Substance 2 wouldn't work IMHO.

Two more phenomenal songs, add to Crystal, PN, and VS, and SJ . SLY does reverberate, right into another universe and back. CR takes a journey to the past , and Hooky makes it beyond beautiful at the end, it could go on forever, a stellar ending .
So, they just cranked out at least 5 phenomenal songs per album from brotherhood on , at least 3 per before , and several singles beyond belief during their sleep ,and added 5 or 6 more great songs per album.
Unprecedented, never to be equaled . . Other bands simply haven't got what NO has .
Plus ,some of the revenge and Monaco songs are excellent , and the 3 electronics and BL are treasures .
There are popular stars out there who never created a song half as good as any from get ready, and they know who they are

Well, if keepitcoming feels Someone Like You is phenomenal who are we to argue. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder they say.

Though I was slightly startled to realise the last New Order “b side” was Such A Good Thing way back in 2002.

Yeah. The lack of post GR b-sides is a bit odd.
Especially when you consider the wealth of unused material (at least by NO standards) the band had around the time of WFTSC.

Recoil, Shake It Up and California Grass, although not my favourite tracks on Lost Sirens, would have made reasonable / appropriate b-sides for Krafty, Jetstream and WFTSC. Would’ve been preferably to the plethora of (mostly superfluous) remixes that accompanied the single releases.

Perhaps the songs weren’t in a finished state at the time.

On the rare occasion I listen to Lost Sirens, I get the impression that none of the songs were in a finished state years later, at the time of release. :-/

I’m glad that Lost Sirens was released but I think I’d have rather the tracks had been included on a deluxe edition of WFTSC. Perhaps released 6-12 months or so after that LPs initial release.

I just don’t really feel that the tracks were good enough for an independent release.

Bonus tracks? Sure.
Separate LP? Not so much.

Yes, you can always rely on KIC for sobre, reasoned comments based firmly in reality.
There's a good album to be culled from WFTSC / LS (like RTP and its B-sides) but that's beer and Mel C time. I'd've preferred the tacks plus the full-length Cuntrol but...

Substance 2 was firsr mooted by Hooky in 94 but I've said that 47600479 times. I wouldn't be up for it because:
1. ANOTHER rehash, 2 years on from their last 'proper' release? It's getting ridickless.
2. It's been so up and down since then: offshoots, one-off collaborations, personnel / personal issues... There's mathematical satisfaction in Substance.
3. I wouldn't.

Run Wild and the magic melodica is coming soon , and all those wonderful sirens, too. But, sadly I must cry another tear for all those gorgeous Eelectronic songs,and , Bad Loo Tenant songs, and Monaco and Revenge songs that may not get reviews.
And In the Ghetto and Miracle Cure, oh my , it is truly a wonderful world when there are almost an infinite number of new order songs , at least a thousand years worth
