Superfluous and bland

"A pointless tribute album is one in which not a single song merits comparison to the original. An album of remixes would have been more rewarding and appropriate."

"With its only saving grace being the covers as mentioned by others, Blue Order is otherwise nothing more than a very badly executed cash in on what there is of the 80's electro resurgence (not that said resurgence is a bad thing - far from it - but Blue Order is NOT doing it any justice). Cliche'd uninventiveness is the order of the day here - just like all these NuTrance collections going around. *ARGH*Do yourself a favour and make sure - instead - you grab The Best Of (blue ?), and The Rest Of New Order (pink ?). The latter especially, is a MUCH better collection - featuring as it does, 80 minutes of VERY good New Order mixes. Including such classics as Pump Panels' stomping acid mix of Confusion... Hardfloors' own floor-worrying acid techno mix of Blue Monday, and many other very memorable cuts.But Blue Order? No. Just... No."
THIS IS NOT A TRIBUTE BUT AN EMBARASSMENT

"Why on earth did they have to make a tribute like this to New Order? This is a mess! This is the poorest rendition of classic New Order songs. They made a terrible mess of Blue Monday and The Beach. The guys who did this tribute obliterated the theme and the groove of the music that made New Order the standard by which every modern techno music writers must aspire to be. The guys who did this tribute were definitely not from that generation. Too bad guys, maybe in the next life you might find yourself in the right generation when the sound was New Order and nothing else compared to it. Maybe then you'll realize what the sound of New Order is really all about. I'm giving it one star cuz it came in Cd format. That's about it. Dont buy this CD!"
