After the death of frontman Ian Curtis, the remaining members of Joy Division decided to lay the band to rest. Ratherthantryto fill theunfillablegap left by Curtis' suicide, the band instead started anew with the appropriately named NewOrder.Withguitarist Bernard Sumnerassuming vocalduties, the group incorporated synths to their sound and upheld thedark,gloomyatmosphere they had adopted as Joy Division.Though on theirfirst few albums Sumner seemed only a shell ofCurtis,heeventually became more confident as a frontman and as anindividual, and the musicblossomed accordingly. Theyalsoshiftedaway from strict post-punk and experimented with the dance, club and ravemusic that was becomingpopular 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 Orderwasone of the paramount groups. To this day, they are recognised as one of the highlight groupsofthedecade, and continue to influencecountlessgroups 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-80sreleasesare far from spectacular. The most recent release, 2005's Waiting for the Siren's Callwasnotoverly successful eithercommercially orcritically, though it was not ravaged either. « hide
