Rockarama Album of the Week (10/1)
Movement, New Order (1981)
New Order’s debut album didn’t get a lot of lovin’ from critics or the charts when it was released. Retrospectively, however, several influential music blogs have given it the thumbs up.
At the time Movement was recorded, New Order had not appointed a frontman; were experimenting with new sounds & styles. Not surprisingly, Movement sounds exactly like what it is – a transitional work that is the missing link between Joy Division New Order.
