Woah, this is actually fucking great dance music. Not something I had expected from a new wave band.

I remember when this came out. I was 16, in a school trip in Italy, and my roomate made me listen to this in his yellow Sony sport: a dance 80's sound that had just came out of fashion in 89, and a very weak singer, sometimes off key. I thought waouh, that's so snob, ironic, and yet great in a way!

An accessible New Order album. It's one of their strongest but hampered slightly by Sumner's weak vocals. Apart from that it's a fine marker to where New Order were at, at this time.

One of their best albums! The combination of the the acid house and dance music in Ibiza with the signature New Order sound equals something magical. Favorites are well, the whole album! Probably the most cohesive album from them

New Order is still my favorite band from this era, and this album ends a wonderful streak of quality, creative, alternative 80s music. At the time I might have said this was my favorite album by New Order, but as time has gone on I find that I care less for the polished synth sounds of this album and prefer best the rougher, more creative sounds of Low Life and Brotherhood (my favorite two New Order Albums). In particular, the first track of this album at the time it came out captivated me; now I just skip that track and listen to the rest of the album. Still a great album, but if you're looking to explore New Order, I would start with Power, Corruption and Lies, or Low Life. Personally, I would now consider Low Life the most classic of all their albums.

I like the album ALOT, the second track sounds like a cross between the cures just like heaven and dinosaur jrs version.

New Order's best album. Technique is a perfect combination of the band's synth-based music, mixed with the House and Acid music that was becoming popular at that time.

A beautiful album and a great way to end possibly the greatest album streak of the decade (Power Corruption and Lies, Low Life, Brotherhood, this)
