This is New Order's most experimental album, and arguably one of their best. I'm not sure why its never mentioned along with albums like PC&L's and Low-Life. This may sound unpopular, but I truly believe its superior to either of those efforts. Both side one and side two have their own distinctive yet coherent sound. I will admit that "Paradise" is not as strong as an opener as "Love Vigilantes" or even "Age of Consent", but the tracks "Weirdo" and "Way of Life" are simply lovely and upbeat pop songs. "BLT" needs no discussion. "All Day Long" has an extremely off-the-wall contrast between the music and the lyrics (which are very good-child abuse), but it doesn't end up ruining this highly uplifting piece, which resolves itself with a lengthy instrumental exchange that is one of the band's finest moments. Finally, "Every Second Counts" reminds us that while New Order is passionate about what they do, they still have a sense of humor that can coexist with all the beauty. The song begins with a Lou Reedish tempo, but concludes sounding much more like the chaotic ending of the Beatles "A Day in the Life."
