The first session has a clutch of songs from Movement, which was the band's first album. On the album those songs have a sludgy sound and seem to drone on and on, but in session they're good fun. The production is cleaner than on the album, and the drum machines are a bit more prominent. Dreams Never End is very similar to the classic bass-lead New Order pop sound of the 1980s, although with a quirk whereby Peter Hook sings the lead vocals. I am thankful that Peter Hook decided to stay on the bass. Taken as a whole, the arrangements, performances, general sound are better than on the album, and I wish they could have simply re-recorded the entire album.
The second session is very dull. The band was moving towards a synth and drum machine dance style, but they were still experimenting. In general the arrangements are simple and monotonous. 586 has a great electronic bassline but after a few minutes it gets boring to listen to. Turn the Heater On is dub reggae; not really my thing, although the group seems to make a good fist of it. I am thankful than New Order did not become a dub band. Overall, the second session feels like an inversion of the first, in that it is less interesting than the album that ensued.
In summary this is a frustrating record. The first session is essential if you're a fan of the band, and it's a good listen even if you aren't. But the second session is really only of historical value, as a prototype of the band's sound on Power, Corruption and Lies.
The recording quality is excellent. The Peel sessions were something between the studio and a live show. Tracks were recorded in Peel's studios for broadcast later, giving them tape quality with live performance dynamics. This is the strength of these discs.
From the first few seconds of the cold, electronic thumping of Truth, the somber, blue cover art begins to make even more sense. I'm too young to remember this early incarnation of New Order, but today it appears like they were doing a pretty admirable job of regrouping after Ian Curtis' death spelled the end of Joy Division. On this release they're respectfully closing the door on that band with solemn vocals and cool musical trappings while dipping into the electronic beats and energy of what would characterize New Order's sound in the 80s.
The disc clocks in at under 40 minutes, and it's a real treat from end to end. Some of the songs are from the first New Order album proper, Movement. For Dreams Never End, the cooly catchy single, Peter Hook does the vocal duties. A couple of tracks are very rare, including a version of Turn the Heater On, a reggae tune(!) that the band manage to completely pull off. The version of 586 here is excellent as well, way different than the Power, Corruption, Lies version and the separate Video 586 disc.
This is also an excellent counterpoint to the other New Order BBC disc available that features excerpts from the 1987 tour which was plagued by technical difficulties and a drunken Bernie Sumner fudging the vocals. This Peel Sessions release has all of the quiet determination of young band and is highly recommended for new and old fans.
Now the last track has to be the greatest. The version of 586 on these sessions is quite different from the more poppy anthem it later became. While vocally inferior to the album version, the heavy synths and other instrumental components are amazing and to me this track has by far the best replay value! Personally I like both 586 versions better than "Blue Monday". Its worth the admission price all by itself, but all the tracks, including this one, make an odd, yet somehow beautiful blend of sounds that is undeniably irristable if you're really looking for something different than the stuff on the radio today.
It may not be a necessity, but I certainly recommend it for any well-versed New Order fan. Whether out of curiosity or a longing to go back to the old New Order and Joy Division days, this album should provide more than its money's worth of entertainment.
