New Order's 30 greatest tracks ranked

https://www.theguardian.com/music/20...lXVcKA88F4s7ac

Agree/Disagree? I have to agree with #1. It may not be their best, but it's my favorite. "Touched by the Hand of God" should be on this list. "Waiting for the Sirens' Call" should not. And thumbs down on that 7" version of "Fine Time". Trimming that great song down to barely 3 minutes is just wrong.

Ceremony would definitely be #1 for me followed by Temptation.
I don't agree with many of those choices though, and would replace several with these:
Touched By the Hand of God
Confusion (Pump Panel Reconstruction Mix) - I LOVE this scene in Blade and this was a perfect song choice for it. Sadly, the rest of the movie was blah.
Procession
Dreams Never End

Saw this the other day and all I can say is, they got the top two correct and so I'm fine with it.

I'm not familiar with their entire catalog, so I can't speak for all the songs on the list, but "True Faith" is definitely my favorite New Order song, so I agree with their number one for sure.

I'm probably one of the few New Order fans that likes the album, but I wouldn't of picked that song. And the list shouldn't of had 2 songs from Music Complete on it.

But I agree with True Faith being #1, and I would of put Perfect Kiss at #2.

My favorite New Order Albums are the first two so for me the top 16 would consist of every song from Movement & Power, Corruption, and Lies.
The rest I need to think about.

Agree to disagree, but "Music Complete" was a fantastic album. And most of the critics gave it high marks. I think it's their best since "Technique".
