I know this came out last year and this band is unhip and supposedly long past its prime, but I beg to differ. I enjoy the hell out of this disc. Sure, the lyrics are embarrassing at times, but there's more spark to this record than the lazy sods of New Order have mustered up in ages. Shit, they even play real drums occasionally, and Peter Hook's trademark bass melodies are all over the place. Plus you can dance to it. (www.neworderweb.com)
