    I prefer the sound of Power Corruption and Lies and the overall quality of Technique, but this is still number three for me. Great album.

    I like the songs except for Every Little Counts. I just don't like it, lol. It makes me feel uneasy. The rest of the songs are good.

    my 1st new order LP and forever an object of contention. still, must be worth something if it kept me going and keeps me coming back.

    I do not know why I never bought this on vinyl, dispite having Substance, Lowlife and Technique. For some reason I never got around to filling the gaps in my collection. I am quite ashamed of that really...

    I seem to love the tracks with the distorted guitar the best on this album. I wish they had more like Way of Lie and Broken Promise.

    I grew up with this album, and it's always been a favourite. One of their best.

    I don't think it sounds cold. Sounds like they're a proper band rather than a bunch of machines on this one (not that I dislike the more electronic stuff), and I also get the impression they're having more fun on this than on previous albums!

    hows it technique junior? technique is quite a warm sounding record where as this has a very cold sound and not a balearic beat in sight
