This is a sister thread to the Charts & Rates highlight. Essentially, any views you have on classic pop that fly in the face of popular and/or critical opinion. To kick things off, I don't like New Order's "Technique." It starts with what I consider their worst '80s single ("Fine Time") and never really recovers. The sloppy vocal is the worst part about this song, but the production is equally mawkish. I can't believe the synth wizards responsible for "Blue Monday" and "Your Silent Face" made such an inelegant mess. Elsewhere, the songs just don't reach the highs of previous albums. I keep what amounts to about half of this (the last three songs plus "Round and Round") but even those have tricks PSB did 10x better. Bonus unpopular New Order opinion: "Movement" is a fantastic album that has never gotten its due. It may have no hit singles but the atmospherics keep me coming back to it often. Plus, you can hear the Joy Division sound slowly crystallizing into the New Order style in real time, which is fascinating.
