8 Songs, 42 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Few albums are more emblematic of the '80s than New Order's triumphant Power, Corruption & Lies. They emerged from Joy Division's ashes a bolder, more inventive band, balancing the last vestiges of post-punk gloom with pulsing synths and drum machines that signaled the dawning of a new era. The band's melodic sensibility was never sharper than it is here, and their mix of emotions was never more exquisitely bittersweet. The worldwide club hit "Blue Monday," meanwhile, sealed their reputation as dance-music visionaries.

Blue Monday….

I think The Beach and Blue Monday only appeared on the American issued record. Everybody else on the planet got this one. Blue Monday, I think, was the biggest selling 12” of all time and it looks like iTunes is happy to keep it there.

Not the whole album

Why isn't Blue Monday on here? Or The Beach? It seems like other songs are missing as well. It's not Power, Corruption and Lies if it's not complete!
