Singles (2005)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Oct 25, 2005; Lead Performance: New Order; Genre: Rock

Eighties synth-pop masters New Order were always a singles band. So this two-CD anthology, Singles, which expands on the concise Substance and telescopes the four-CD Retro, makes sense. Diminished returns by set's end, but less so than you'd expect; they can still wring more soul from a drum machine than most anybody. And any CD with ''Blue Monday'' and ''Temptation'' will improve your day.
