Album of the Day
Power, Corruption, & Lies Definitive
While traces of their Joy Division past can still be heard on POWER, CORRUPTION AND LIES, the 1983 collection marks the emergence of New Order as a great band in its own right. Recorded at Britannia Row Studios, Islington, the self-produced set mixes irresistible pop melodies, adventurous synthesizer sequences and danceable grooves on eight originals including such standouts as club classic “Age of Consent,” “The Village” and “Your Silent Face.” Now available, the new 1-LP/2-CD/2-DVD Definitive Edition of the album includes the remastered original, a disc of previously unreleased writing sessions and BBC recordings as well as rare live & TV performances. This is New Order frontman Bernard Sumner's birthday, and we'll wish him a happy one with another spin of POWER, CORRUPTION AND LIES.
