Whereas Republic & Get Ready came crashing in with a big & obviously Neworder anthems with Regret & Crystal, featuring classic Hook basslines - and you could argue something similar for Sirens & Krafty - only to then falter somewhat in the longer listen (Liar, Slow Jam, Working Overtime being but 3 citations) - they seem to have come in low here, underplaying what has been built up thus far to be a more dance / synth than guitar led album.

Thus, Restless is not a crashing Neworder anthem but it is catching the ear of those of us who like a certain something about Technique's album tracks.



Or maybe after 10 years, I'm just happy I don't find it as 'meh' as Lost Sirens.

You'll have to excuse my (ahem) decade of lurking on New Order Online.

To throw in an opinion - I love it. I was secretly hoping for more of an 80s-twinged New Order, whether it be Low-life or Technique. So far, this song, I've gotten it. And it's not that I hate WFTSC or Get Ready (in fact, I like Get Ready more than, let's say, Republic), but this sounds more like the band I fell in love with. (Dracula's Castle: Never Forget)

Do y'all think NO released Lost Sirens to fulfill a contract? I do. A new New Order album on Mute of all places? I'm pretty sure 16 year old me is shrieking hysterically somewhere.

I just listened to "Dream Attack" and continue feeling great for their return until I'm confronted with the rest of the album, hoping the rest is just as lovely.

Sounds a bit like a demo hopefully once we have it on download format through better audio systems it may improve

Yes, and the vocals too deep in the mix don't help.

...It's like if they'd have chosen Guilty Partner for a single.

Have a closer look, that's on an album called New Order. It doesn't have New Order the band in it. The song is from 2012.


Ahh, cool, thanks for pointing that out. The snippet sounds like one of the lesser Spooky mixes, or of that era.

It is understated and surprising for a new order single but to be honest I fuckin love it. Gets better with every listen. One more for the fans than the casual listener.

Much like HeySquirrelPub, I'm a regular lurker on these here forums, making visits almost daily.

Upon waking up this morning, I googled New Order under the news tab and was elated to find Restless available for listen.

Instantly, I adored the song. Mr. Sumner is singing in a lower register, which I absolutely adore. The vocals are deep in the mix, allowing the pensive melancholy of the lush instrumentation to take center stage. By the second listen, I was grinning like the Joker and singing along with glee.

So - upon checking the forums - I was surprised to see the majority of opinions expressing a sense of mild (or greater) disappointment.

And that's great! I'm happy to see New Order crafting such a polarizing song. That's not a thing they often do.

This is a tough crowd! I think it is a beautiful beginning to what should be a fantastic album. I may be biased, as Technique is my favorite album, and Dream Attack is one of my favorite songs on that album, but I think this single is simply sublime, and well worth the wait.

It's a strong return. I suppose it doesn't necessarily sound like a single but singles don't mean what they used to these days. This is more of a taster for the album. It's not exactly crying out for a remix, is it? I certainly look forward to the extended version as the music sounds superb. I'm very pleased with the production as well.

I don't mind the lyrics either, as the theme is fitting for the times. I suppose this is another reason why it might not be considered "single material". While my favourite New Order lyrics tend to be about relationships as opposed to social commentary, I don't think these should be dismissed. Are people suddenly expecting Bob Dylan and William Wordsworth? Or perhaps they'd rather Barney sing about dropping an E and having a motorway penis.

Not impressed, if this is what they've chosen to release with a slew of remixes to introduce a new album I'm dreading to think what the rest of the album sounds like, it sounds like something that wouldn't stand out on the second Electronic album or a Bad Lieutenant offcut.

Actually, the more I listen to it, the more it reminds me of Lost Sirens (which is a good thing as it is their best "album" since Technique, IMHO). But that numbing lack of direction also brings to mind Bad Lieutenant (Poisonous Intent come to mind)...

It's kinda sad, NO were really a perfect album band up to 1989, after that it was hit and miss and mostly miss. Something got broken and never fixed (I still cannot overcome the title Dracula's Castle). So, yes, I'm looking forward the new album.

Despite not really being that impressed with the YouTube release I downloaded the tune from iTunes and my impression has slightly changed.

The proper version flows a lot better as it has a better song structure.

I can detect the dream attack comparison I. The bridge "how's much do you need" ("I don't belong to no one) but can't hear any loveless in it.

I think it's a pretty standard new order track. Guitars, high end bass, lush synth strings, random lyrics etc.

Definately a slow burner. At this point is say better than WFTSC, Krafty and Hellbent but not as good as Here to Stay, Crystal or Turn.

MP3 download is 1min longer with an extra verse - "...the fiscal climate isn't looking good..."


There are definitely subtle female backing vox on the chorus, which to my ear sound like Gillian from her TO2 stuff - this isn't one of the tracks EJ is supposed to be backing on.

What can you buy
That lifts a heavy heart up to the sky?
What makes your day?
What miracle of life
Has come to stay?
A taste of love
So sweet, so real you can't let go
And how does it feel?
It feels so good...

But how much do you need?
How much, how much do you need?
How much do you need?
How much, how much do you need?

I want a nice car
A girlfriend
Who's as pretty as a star
I want respect
As much, as much as I can get

But how much do you need?
How much, how much do you need?
How much do you need?
How much, how much do you need?

Restless
I feel so restless
And in this changing world
I am lost for words

I feel so restless
Ain't got no interest
I couldn't care less
Can't be a success

Due to current studies
The fiscal climate isn't looking good
Get out of town
The streets are running rivers full of blood

The more I see
The less, the less that I believe
The more I hear
The less, the less that I perceive

Restless
I feel so restless
And in this changing world
I am lost for words

I feel so restless
Ain't got no interest
I couldn't care less
Can't be a success

What can you buy
That lifts a heavy heart up to the sky?
What makes your day?
What miracle of life has come to stay?

A taste of love
So sweet. So real you can't let go.
And how does it feel?
It feels so good.

Restless
I am so restless
And this changing world
Leaves me speechless

I am lost for words
But I kept my nerve
But it's not hopeless
If you take rest

Heard it a few times now, couple of beers and with headphones. It sounds great but tune wise trying to compare apples with apples (i.e. post Republic) to me it's not up there with Crystal or Krafty as a lead single. But maybe that's the point, singles now are meaningless. It's a taster of the album nothing more. I remember when Twisted Tenderness came out and they put a taster song on an NME free disc (Haze maybe?) and I was not that impressed. Album after a few listens was very good. That others really like Restless is a good sign :)

Could be "You took..." but sounds like "Due to...", which doesn't make much sense (shocker!). Definitely "...current studies", though.
