New Order
“The first post-acid house masterpiece of British pop, Technique presents New Order doing what they’d done best for close to a decade – writing brilliant left-field pop songs and consistently blurring the line between electronic dance and alternative pop. From the driving singles Fine Time, Run, and Round & Round, it would appear that Technique was the band’s most dance-slanted record yet, though rockier album tracks like Love Less and All the Way reveal the band having it both ways. Mr. Disco proves that the group’s baffling sense of humor is still intact.” (Bush).
