Substance cover



New Order created one of the 1980s most iconic double albums via a deft, well-chosen compilation in the form of Substance, aiming to draw together their many notable non-album 12” singles in particular into one place (with the CD version adding a slew of B-sides on a second disc). Ranging from their debut “Ceremony” to their latest single and biggest American hit yet, the propulsive “True Faith,” it’s an embarrassment of riches, with standout mixes including “The Perfect Kiss,” “Bizarre Love Triangle” and of course their most iconic song, “Blue Monday.”
