tl;dr: an all time favorite (reviewing the LP version, aka the first disc)

I’ve already stressed my love for New Order on here several times so I’ll spare you all my tired explanations I’ve used before. Instead I want to attempt to convey my experience with this band and why they’ve come to mean so damn much to me. Why I currently cite them as my biggest musical inspiration.

HEY WHAT is an absolute stunner. Low push further into the world they created on Double Negative by warping and ripping apart the sounds they make. It’s massive and shuddering record full of gorgeous vocal performances, all-encompassing noise, love, pain, and most crucially, hope.

Hey, I'm doing a community list of songs to hypothetically replace the U.S. National Anthem, would love to hear what your suggestion is and why you think it's deserving of anthem status (you don't need an explanation, but it would be nice :))
