New Order, Get Ready

New Order make a triumphant return with Get Ready, their first record since 1993’s Republic. They’ve definitely tweaked their setup a bit (more guitar—a lot more), but they've retained their distinctive sound and, in many ways, have improved upon it—especially in ‘Primitive Notion,’ which is easily their finest song since ‘True Faith.’ I guess that’s why they’re the best band in the world. Favorite tracks: ‘Crystal,’ ‘Vicious Streak,’ ‘Primitive Notion,’ ‘Run Wild.’
