New Order - Movement LP (Canada Import)


New Order's debut (from 1981) in name only, with the ghost of Ian Curtis still hanging heavy. 'Movement' is the sound of guitarist Bernard Sumner, percussionist Stephen Morris, and innovative bassist Peter Hook building a bridge from Joy Division's drone to New Order's considerably brighter dance pop. Peppered with dark highlights like the almost poppy 'Dreams Never End,' the electro chaos of the Pere Ubu-influenced 'ICB,' and 'The Him,' with its rhythmic echoes of joy division's 'Atrocity Exhibition'.
