NEW ORDER / Lost Sirens (2013)

Lost Sirens is a collection of unreleased tracks originally written during the Waiting for the Sirens' Call (2005) recording session.  It’s not surprising then that it sounds very similar to that album.  There are some old hooks played in new ways but once again it’s the choruses that really shine on each track.  However, there's nothing on here that will convince you to like them if you didn't before.
As much as I enjoy the modern New Order sound, I can’t shake the feeling that it’s all too safe.  It needs more danger.  It needs a kick up the ass.
