After the death of frontman Ian Curtis, the remaining members of Joy Division decided to lay the band to rest. Ratherthantryto fill theunfillable gap left by Curtis' suicide, the band instead started anew with the appropriately named NewOrder.Withguitarist Bernard Sumnerassuming vocal duties, the group incorporated synths to their sound and upheld thedark,gloomyatmosphere they had adopted as Joy Division.Though on their first few albums Sumner seemed only a shell ofCurtis,heeventually became more confident as a frontman and as anindividual, and the music blossomed accordingly. Theyalsoshiftedaway from strict post-punk and experimented with the dance, club and ravemusic that was becoming popular inthe80s. INfact, New Order helped popularise it and bring it into the mainstream.

Power, Corruption and Lies, Brotherhood and Low-Life are among the best albums of the 80s, adecadeinwhich New Orderwas one of the paramount groups. To this day, they are recognised as one of the highlight groupsofthedecade, and continue to influencecountless groups to this day. Even to non-fans, 'Blue Monday' is one ofthemostrecognisable songs put to record.

Though the group continues to record and all of their albums are cherised by hardcore fans, for average listenersandcriticstheir post-80sreleases are far from spectacular. The most recent release, 2005's Waiting for the Siren's Callwasnotoverly successful eithercommercially or critically, though it was not ravaged either. « hide
