NEW ORDER – Released Glimmering Pop Pearl Album ‘REPUBLIC’ 25 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

2 May 2018



Released: 3 May 1993 – 25 years ago

ALL MUSIC / John Bush wrote: “Pulling back slightly from the raw, dance-oriented Technique, New Order took a break for four years and then crafted another slice of prime guitar pop. In keeping with previous work, Republic simply borrows elements of contemporary innovations in club music to frame a set of effortlessly enjoyable alternative pop songs. As on Technique, the singles (“World,” “Spooky”) are the most danceable on the record, while lyrical concerns are among the most direct of the group’s career, including “Ruined in a Day” and “Times Change,” sure signs of the demise of Factory Records.” Score: 8/10

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: “After all these years still a must-take-along-on-holiday album. From electro-fueled sparks to guitar spiced gems. Both relaxing and uplifting!
