Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
This 14-song retrospective traces New Order's unlikely career arc from post–Joy Division post punks to the most original dance-pop group of the past two decades. More concise than the two-disc, 1987 collection Substance and more current with six more recent recordings, International rightly emphasizes the group's body-moving best, from innovative early club favorites "Blue Monday" the bestselling 12" of all time and the Arthur Baker–produced "Confusion" to mid-period dance-floor standouts "Shellshock" and "True Faith" to recent cuts "Crystal" and the Chemical Brothers–produced "Here to Stay," which appeared on the 24 Hour Party People soundtrack.

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
This 14-song retrospective traces New Order's unlikely career arc from post–Joy Division post punks to the most original dance-pop group of the past two decades. More concise than the two-disc, 1987 collection Substance and more current with six more recent recordings, International rightly emphasizes the group's body-moving best, from innovative early club favorites "Blue Monday" the bestselling 12" of all time and the Arthur Baker–produced "Confusion" to mid-period dance-floor standouts "Shellshock" and "True Faith" to recent cuts "Crystal" and the Chemical Brothers–produced "Here to Stay," which appeared on the 24 Hour Party People soundtrack. New Order's more cerebral side is less well represented, with their eerie first single "Ceremony" and the sad synths of "Thieves like Us" for more, get the simultaneously released box set, Retro. Of course, there will be omissions: Notably absent are the essential singles "Everything's Gone Green" and "Temptation," but the space is ably filled by 12" mixes of "Bizarre Love Triangle," "The Perfect Kiss," and "Touched by the Hand of God." Taken as a whole, International adds another layer of blacktop to the road New Order long ago paved for Moby, the Pet Shop Boys, Madonna, and so many others. Initial, limited-edition copies are packaged with a bonus DVD including videos for "True Faith," "The Perfect Kiss," and "Blue Monday."
All Music Guide - John Bush
Any band that's released nearly as many compilations as studio albums in the past 15 years certainly doesn't need another one, but International appeared anyway, and though it's slightly better than The Best of New Order, it's not nearly as solid as Substance. Beginning with New Order's recorded debut, 1981's "Ceremony," the collection proceeds immediately to the group's worldwide breakout with 1983's "Blue Monday," then slots mid-'80s classics "Confusion," "The Perfect Kiss," and "Bizarre Love Triangle." It certainly didn't need three tracks from 2001's Get Ready. Most of the tracks are album versions, though the compilers made wise choices on remixes of "Bizarre Love Triangle" and "Touched by the Hand of God." As befits a middling compilation from an excellent band, International is a take-it-or-leave-it proposition.

    Fantastic Collection

    Although New Order has several other compilations available, I have to say this was a welcomed release. You can really see the progression of the band here. Chart toppers like "Electric Avenue" and "Pass the dutchie" give you a taste of their reggae influence, and then the album fades into their darker, more introspective tracks. I have to say that by adding Duane Allman into the mix on slide guitar they really made a wise move, as he gave them more of a broad appeal and was more or less their ticket into the honky tonk circuit. If you're looking for a cross section of what goth-pop has been up to over the last 6 years, this is a great place to start.
