|CPD May 31 1993 - "New Order survives tall order of time" (Article written by Andy Plesh) Four years after its excellent last full-length release, "Technique," New Order proves it can still make good music.|
The proof is "Republic," a retrogressive yet well-made record that mixes '90s synthpop with modern computerized techno.
New Order was on of the original electronic dance bands; techno and rave groups such as 808 State owe many of their ideas to this pioneering band.
On "Republic," most of the techniques New Order have used for the past 12 years can be found -- the thin, often emotionless voice of Bernard Sumner; a rhythmic melancholy bass guitar; orchesteral synthesizers; dance-oriented electric guitars; sad introspective lyrics and lots of drumbeats.
Songs such as "Special," "Regret" and the mostly instrumental "Avalanche," deal with feelings of lost love, sadness and regret, with beauty and tenderness.
"Special" is memorable for the refrain, "It was something special/it was like water down the drain/I'm intoxicated/every time I hear your name." "Regret" is receiving airplay on WENZ-FM 107.9 and MTV.
In "World," Sumner sings sweetly about bitterness with the help of backup vocals and a piano. "Chemical," the only song that doesn't sound like it's from the '80s, is a well composed computerized techno romp.
"Regret" sounds a lot like the 1981 song "Ceremony," and "Chemical" sounds like a techno counterpart to 1989 acidhouse hit "Fine Time."
Someone who already owns a few New Order albums might wish the band would find some new hooks and a fresher style, although the group's excellent songwriting shouldn't disappoint anyone.
People who are into the cure -- especially "Mixed Up," Depeche Mode and techno music -- will probably like New Order's "Republic." [Photo accompanies article]
