This is a rollercoaster of an album and it could be their collaborators that have kept the ride enjoyable. New recruit Phil Cunningham gives an extra dimension of guitar, most significantly on the urgent "Morning Night And Day", star producers John Leckie and Stephen Street both polish the gems already present, and the Scissor Sisters' Ana Matronic brings her unique sense of style to the smouldering "Jetstream". Presumably, Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook's recent alliance with Gwen Stefani has given them a taste for raucous Americans. Tearing ever onward, the album drops in on New Order's biggest floor filler since "Blue Monday", the potent "Guilt Is A Useless Emotion", before rattling through a foot-tapping "Turn" and stomping to a halt on the Iggy Pop-esque, drum driven "Working Overtime". At this point, the non-believers exit, assured in their opinion. Meanwhile, the rest of us pull the harnesses back down, wait for the ride to start again, and let the joy of a fresh New Order album wash over us.
