This album offers great guitar play but bad vocals. There are not many really good songs like "The Perfect Kiss" or "Elegia" but even the weaker material always shows glimpses of greatness and the guitar sound of New Order ist very unique. Note that there's also a 12 Inch Mix of "The Perfect Kiss" and a 17 minute version of "Elegia" on the 2008 Collector's Edition of "Low-Life".

It’s difficult to hate them. Even if they sing completely off-key and use the same song structure again and again, they always know to give it a certain spin and throw in a new instrument in to keep your interest.

Solid album from top to bottom. The one-two punch of "This Time of Night" and "Sunrise" (deliberate back-to-back placement?) is what I keep coming back to.

Great album, New Order continues their brilliancy here with tracks such as Love Vigilantes, The Perfect Kiss, Sunrise, Elegia, and Sooner Than You Think. One of their best albums and my personal favorite New Order album

this is somber and wistful electronic music, which has an early-cure-like hypnotic touch (sunrise!) and imho a glimpse of "gentle ebm". i needed more than one attempt to like it but it grew better and better.

Why they didn't put the full version of perfect kiss on here is beyond me. Every time I hear this album I always wish it wouldn't fade out! What the hell were they thinking cos the full version is one of the best things I've ever heard. It fades just at the point it goes from fantastic to mind blowing. Had a video taped off bbc from world cup 86 with goals montage from past with the kiss instrumental over the top. Amazing. Didn't know who it was till got substance in 1990.
