I love learning more about our favorite band thru all of these great reviews by Dennis and every comment.

Recent thoughts about the wonderfulness of New Order

Maybe some day New Order will be taught in schools, at least two or three semesters, like calculus, with wonderful professors

Where are the Guitar magazine articles about Bernard?, as he learned quickly ,and always added a great variety of well played wonderful guitar parts, but generally is overlooked for his brilliant guitar. Maybe Bernard should write the best shredding song ever and put the methhead guitarists on notice.

Same lack of reverence for his voice and lyrics is painful ,too.

Star Test with Bernard -- Awesome , fabulous , but not allowing it to be seen anymore is mean spirited

A New Order /Joy Division Magazine Book with lots of photos and art and important and fun stuff.,similar to the magbook tributes to stars that passed like Bowie and Tom Petty,or about fun stuff like Sherlock,Shakespeare, the Royals, Spitfires, ,Vikings, Lizards, etc.

A box set of all the videos, films, interviews , star test, etc.would be ok ,too

One last thing . Going over the Beatles illustrated lyric books reminded me that of course new order deserves as much because Bernard is as great as Paul and John and George .

Soundtrack is wonderful. Still revives a memory of wandering around that Saville exhibition in London one day in summer 2003. Feels like centuries ago now! Still great to listen to, a fantastic half hour chill out . Picked up the cd and Saville book at the exhibition shop before leaving. Seem to recall the cd was a bit expensive, £10 for half hour of music but worth every penny.

Quite liked Who’s Joe back in 2005, strong chorus and liked the keyboard chimes and rumbling sounds on intro . The tired guitar later in the song grates though.

Soundtrack (aka Ambient) is the only NO track I've never heard at all. Ever. Like, never ever (sorry that was All Saints and disrespectful to the Spice Girls). It came out (like Neil Tennant) at the height of my non-interest, was never included on an album, and never made BubeTube either.

Never heard it either, glad it was not like vietnam , glad it is much better than most ambient, including most of the 75 or so releases by Eno.
Not paying 200 dollars for it, but some smart computer literate teens might get it burned to disc for me and maybe these unknown brilliant lads or lasses can infuse some of Bernard's dulcet tones onto a second disc, perhaps adding some la la las, or whoops.
Where was he ?
Yachting , practicing football kicks, or dancing ?

Loving these reviews (as well as kic and mm comments!) WFTSC. Is with9ut doubt NO worse offering but a strange one after thoughts on it years past. When it was released at the time I did rather enjoy it. BUT the thing with albums they need time to ‘sink or swim’ thtats why reviews at the time are pretty useless. When I first heard the album I liked it better than GR but now it’s way off even that album. GR only had RTS I disliked but WFTSC had I told you so, morning night and day, Dracula’s castle, Jetstream, and working overtime that ranged from poor to average at best. Still has one absolute classic in the title track and another excellent one in Turn. I would rate Who’s Joe, HNWYD, Kraft, GIAUE as good solid NO tracks. But as has been said before best tracks from WFTSC and LS make a pretty solid album still.

Maybe in 30 years time when we arrive at the gig on hover boards and NO have been preserved forever out of legend status they will do another MIF they will start with an instrumental of Dracula’s castle and I’ll love it and then at long last they will follow up with Leave Me Alone and we’ll all die happy.

MC- songs are still good ,but not easy to repeat over and over. Are they too long?
Sirens - 18 magically diverse songs ,lots of great parts from everyone , maybe their best songs ,easy to listen to multiple times ,
GR- incredibly wonderful songs, plus all the singles b sides ,etc make for another 18 killer songs,all easy to repeat
Republic- love songs that make me hate most other band's love songs and those way too many popular stars that wrote love songs that sucked. Plus some kid friendly songs like chemical and spooky that made 5 year olds in other cars smile and dance and boogie ,priceless
Technique- not enough songs , but true faith and 1963, and love vigilantes add to it nicely .One song on it was just only ok, but name escapes me
Bro- all great ,tho ,maybe 1 of the 5 guitar songs not great, not sure which
Low Life - rerecord sunrise so it doesn't sound like murky Cure., Face up - boffo start but ,Bernard needs to rework vocals and the rest of the song.
Same for sooner.
Elegia- why an homage to Ian that has very little zip, vitality, or his humanity or his strength and brilliance and humour??, it would be better as tribute to Eregia, Roman woman in year 300 or so that led an entourage of 300 people to Holy Land , and if I remember my Latin she claimed to be at site of Lot's wife, but said she saw no pillar of salt anyewhere, thus a very honest and sober account of history. Also not enough good songs,and they could write another tribute to Ian and make it awesome if they try .
PCL- three miles to go no good and only 2 good songs on side 2 , LMA,and YSF
Movement- rerecord Dreams with a good Bernard vocal, maybe same for Doubts even here, but probably would not matter.

new great songs would of course be just fine, they can do it , and Bernard can get great wine and shine and opine all down the line

You've been reading too much KIC.
Who's Joe (aka Lordsy) is probably the best track on WFTSC, but that's like saying which politician you'd most like to sit on your face. HNWYD (Road to Ruin) is a horrible name for a song that sounds like an Oasis Bside. It's mostly downhill after this.

That made me laugh:

No, No. No, No, No, No. No, No, No, No. No, No, there’s no limits.

Yep. Saville’s sleeve design will help to illustrate that 90s Classic. Smile
