SAME. I don't get all the Republic bashing on this forum. Get Ready is the piece of shit.

An anal-ysis of New Order's first allbums
By Richard Staines
Movement. This is essentially a transitional album from Joy Division to New Order. It's as if they stopped being Joy Division and became New Order.
PCL. This is essentially a transitional album from Joy Division to New Order. It's as if they stopped being Joy Division and became New Order.
Low Life. This is essentially a transitional album from Joy Division to New Order. It's as if they stopped being Joy Division and became New Order.
Brotherhood. This is essentially a transitional album from Joy Division to New Order. It's as if they stopped being Joy Division and became New Order.
Technique. This is essentially a transitional album from Joy Division to New Order. It's as if they stopped being Joy Division and became New Order.
Republic. This album Is shit.

you give them way too much credit for this song.

i'd rate it a 2/5 at the most, the remixes might push
it to a 3, but thats about it.

repeated listens might force you to like it more, but when
there's not much there to dig into in the first place,
it just lessens what the song has (or doesn't have).

later
-1

Funny you should say that.
My rating was 3.5 up to a 4 in anticipation of the remixes - how optimistic is that!
Don't kill my enthusiasm LoL

I’m sorry but I’ve listened to be a Rebel about 40 times and it’s not sticking for me. It’s a nice throwaway pop song in the vein of Liar to me.

2.5/5

Not overstruck either but it's light years ahead of Liar. After the wait and the hype I didn't know whether to laugh or piss myself. Utter crud.

Yeah, same for me. 2/5 here.

It has a nice, summery, 'Republic' feel to it, but to me it just sounds like a demo made with basic MIDI synthesisers or soundcards.

Granted, it's wonderful they are still releasing new material, and long may it continue, but my main problem with the song is that after playing it many times, it doesn't stick in my head - I couldn't sing it to you if you asked me how it goes.

Hoping for something more interested in the Barney/Steve remixes...

I agree with you totally on these excellent observations, which I quote:

Everything else was bitter and grumpy which I've had enough of for 2020. More light pop music required.

I said Light years ahead... Of Liar. Kinda brings it down.
I think a lot of people are just pleased about (a) something cool in this shit year, (b) anything at all instead of yet another retread and (c) anything other than Liar.
