New Order always shone brightest as a singles band, and this stellar two-disc set collects most of the a- and b-sides from singles released between the band's inception and 1987. "Ceremony", a leftover from the band's past as Joy Division,opens the proceedings. It is followed by 150-odd minutes ofmaterial that, through the 1980s, set the standard for dance music. Classics like "Everything's Gone Green", "Perfect Kiss" and "Bizarre Love Triangle" appear next to alternate versions of the stunning "Temptation" and "Confusion". Also included is "True Faith", which, along with "1963", was recorded especially for this collection. Opening the second disc is another Joy Division leftover, "In a Lonely Place", a haunting epitaph for the former band.
"Procession", "Mesh" and "Hurt", all great evocations of loss and healing, lead into "The Beach", an instrumental (and far superior) version ofthe dance classic "Blue Monday". "Murder" is New Order's creepiest moment, with its sampled "I hate them!" from the film "Caligula" and assorted samples of HAL, the computer from the film 2001, descending into insanity. SUBSTANCE is not only the sound of an evolving band, but the sound of an evolving musical style that has influenced countless other artists.

Good discs, a hot deal five pounds for a ancient cd tho? not so sure

Everyone a winner, and no filler

One of the best albums of all time :thumbsup:

I have this on cassette someplace - perhaps time to upgrade
My version of Blue Monday (12" , of course) has the labels on the wrong sides - must be worth millions - not.

a fine album - one of the 1st cd's i ever brought - cough, about 20 years ago - blimey i feel old

same here, great cd, in fact I might just buy this again at this price as my original one is a little worse for wear

one of the best collections of all time IMHO. there have been a few new order compilations, and most of them have their merits - but Substance is by far the best. New Order in their prime were awesome

Quite possibly New Order's finest moment, even if it is a compilation.

Hot!

Ancient? ANCIENT??
This is new stuff as far as I'm concerned - I was 21 when this came out! Go back and listen to Speech Debelle along with the other 2,999 people who bought the album

Oh, and it's £5 instore at HMV if you can't wait (and well worth the £15 I paid for it some years back).

great album - great band - scorchio !

Just for the record :roll:, Joy Division's 1988 compilation was also titled "Substance". :thumbsup:

Good music will always be good music whenever it was made. If you haven't got it already, buying this album will probably represent the best five pounds you've ever spent.

Echoing others, this is one of the best compilations ever put together. And just so Tony Wilson could have all his favourite New Order tracks in one place. Top bloke.
