A review of the New Order album Music Complete.

 

After revealing their first state of new music in years with techno-oriented lead single “Plastic” (which we also recently reviewed), new wave pioneers New Order unleashed their latest album, Music Complete on the market.


It features 11 songs that feel like a great summary of what the band has been up to over the past few decades. While the opener “Restless” feels decidedly brit-pop, electronic influences start to creep in on “Singularity,” a track that sounds like a great blend of old and new, boasting some classic New Order grooves.


The album becomes even more dance-oriented with previously mentioned single “Plastic” and “Tutti Frutti,” a song that echoes the early days of house. “People on The Highline” keeps the dance party going, but sounds like an attempt to travel the funk-laced road of Daft Punk’s latest studio effort.


“Stray Dog2” brings the album into darker territories, with some menacing spoken words and drum patterns. The second is an introduction to another part of  the album, a coda that showcases the band’s power-pop and rock soul with songs such as the catchy “Academic” and the up-tempo closing number “Superheated.”


Music Complete is an album that lives up to its title, showcase many different sides of an iconic band.
