"Well, I saw the new versions of the 5 Factory reissues of New Order's catalogue on London/Warner/Rhino at Boston's Newbury Comics...you can tell the new versions, as they don't have the clear slipcases, just shrinkwrapped with the stickers on front and back, and they include a second booklet with the contents of all 5 reissues...so to try it out, get my feet wet so to speak, I bought "Power, Corruption & Lies", as it has the 12"s of both "Blue Monday" and "Thieves Like Us", as well as "Age Of Consent" and "Your Silent Face".
Kept my fingers crossed.
The album sounds great.
Kept my fingers crossed again.
Popped on Disc 2, Track 1, "Blue Monday"...the verdict??? It sounds fantastic, the remastering, and most important??? NO ERRORS!!!!!!!!!!!! This should have happened back in November, 2008, but I guess better late than never, right??? The booklet's packaging is great, down to the fine details, the liner notes are great and a fun read, and the info booklet is great because you know what's in the other 4 reissues, what Factory releases they came from initially, and you can compare them with the boxset "Retro" and other titles you may have.
So I then just bought "Low Life"...same thing, all great, even though the discs are reversed, like the label on Disc 1 should have gone on Disc 2 and vice versa...anybody else have this problem??? No biggie.
Will be buying the other 3 in time, and the 3 Joy Division deluxes...but any word on when/if deluxes of New Order's other 3 albums will happen: that of 1993's "Republic" with "Regret", 2001's "Get Ready" and 2005's "Waiting For The Siren's Call"??? If not, I'll buy the regulars, but I need to know, thanks.
In time...it's a green light on this corrected "PC&L"...and "Low Life"...buy it!!"

"Just purchased this on January 20, 2010, and received the 2008 mis-pressed edition. The 2009 fixed editions have been out since September 2009 but the original versions are still in circulation apparently. Buyer beware -"

"These CD's have been in effect recalled for numerous sonic errors primarily on the second disks. DO NOT BUY the November 11, 2008 versions. Rhino has re-released them as of August 25, 2009. These are the corrected versions."
