TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘Low-life’ – Third NEW ORDER Longplayer…

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘Low-life’ by NEW ORDER
Released: 13 May 1985 / NO’s third longplayer

ALL MUSIC review: “New Order’s third LP, Low-life, was, in every way, the artistic equal of
their breakout, 1983’s ‘Power, Corruption & Lies’. The point where the band’s fusion of rock
and electronics became seamless, it showed the band members having it every way they wanted: heavily sequenced and synthesized, but with bravura work from Bernard Sumner’s guitar and Peter Hook’s plaintive, melodic bass; filled with hummable pop songs, but still experimental as far as how the productions were achieved – But there was no mistaking that New Order had reached a peak, experimenting with their sound and their style, but keeping every moment wrapped in an unmistakable humanness.”

Score: 4.5/5 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: A 24-hour party album and with previous LP
Power, Corruption & Lies‘ the very core of New Order‘s work to my ears.
