      A Great Album From The Godlike Geniuses

      So Long, And Thanks For All The Songs
      =================================

      Could this be the last ever New Order album? How many times have we heard that? Hooky has thrown his toys out of the pram and perhaps this really is the end.

      Still, New Order fans should be thankful as it looked like Republic was to be
      the last. So, assuming that this could be the swan song then does it do them justice?

      Well, my answer to that question would have to be yes. I know many would disagree with me on that, but this is my opinion. For me this is a good encapsulation of what New Order are about. A good mix of guitar and electronics, some catchy hooks and some rather dark lyrics and some uplifting too.

      There is only one collaboration on this, Annamatonic from the Scissor Sisters (thankfully it's only her from them) on Jetstream. I prefer them to work alone.

      Gillian is no longer with them having been replaced with a new guitarist, Consequently as with the previous album this is more guitar driven.

      This album is not pushing any boundaries which is often a criticism pointed
      at it, I don't really care about that as the songs stand up for themselves. They have been pioneers in the past, this is a consolidation of that.
      Some of it even sounds reminiscent of Joy Division, something I noticed in the album "Get Ready". Especially the drumming.

      There are no real weak tracks on the album, however my least favourite is
      "Guilt Is A Useless Emotion", this is the closest to a filler on the CD.

      On the whole I would recommend this album for the sheer quality of songs and some excellent performing, most of the guitar work is excellent. It's been in my car CD changer since I bought it. So it's fours stars for me, not five because they have made better.

      Recommended.
