Great compilation. Like someone below said, this band was well ahead of the curve.

“Blue Monday” was so ahead of its time, it’s not even fair.

Disc 1 is fantastic, not a bad song. Disc 2 is a little annoying with all of the instrumentals, which are not all bad, and the remixes, which are also all not bad, but with the actual songs in Disc 2 like Procession and In a Lonely Place, it is annoying to have to listen to the remixes and instrumentals.

just picked this up from a record fair. Been playing this all night. Had forgotten how good it is. A must for fans of post-punk dance music.

Agree with most of the other comments, the first disc of Substance (up through True Faith) is unbelievable, better than any New Order studio album imo, the tracks are in chronological order and this gives the listener a great sense of the band's progression throughout the 80s.
