Album of the Day
Movement (Definitive Edition)
Out of the ashes of Joy Division, the remaining members decided to carry on recording under the name of New Order; the band's debut album was MOVEMENT. Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and Peter Hook's former group is echoed throughout the 1981 collection, which was helmed by Joy Division producer Martin Hannett and includes references to that group's fallen frontman, Ian Curtis. But true to its name, MOVEMENT also displays progression, with new recruit Gillian Gilbert and a funkier guitar sound (“Senses”) and electronic percussion (“Truth”) hinting at dance and synth-pop glories to come. The new Definitive Edition of the seminal set includes the original album on vinyl and CD, a bonus disc of previously unreleased tracks, a DVD of live shows and TV appearances and a hardback book.
