Oh, it's a strange day
In such a lonely way
I saw some children dance
I watched my life in a trance

    Good album but this track is bobbins, This is the scenario if New Order kept trying to be Joy Division ( No Chance ). Thankfully New Order found their own equally brilliant direction on their next album Power, Corruption, & Lies

    holding the last of the totally awesome post punk guitars of joy division. every album after musically lost that talent.

    Joy Division-ish feelings this record could be a 3rd Joy Division Album. (:

    new order never got any better than this imo. the danceable stuff was okay in parts, but nothing beats the post-Joy Division music [2]

    tomrud73 - totally agree about yr first post. Movement is a much more interesting album than their later stuff. They became progressively more blander after the first few albums.

    The Western Works demo version might be even more downcast than "In a Lonely Place."

    the drum machine sounds pretty futuristic for 1981, or whatever the year was when this came out
