New Order – “The Him”

So a couple weeks ago Joseph Kyle posted on Facebook about New Order’s Movement being a good record.  I bought the album back in 1995 & listened to it maybe twice & it never grabbed me.  It just felt like a transition point between Joy Division’s Closer & New Order’s Power, Corruption & Lies (the only album by anyone I’ve purchased on cassette, vinyl, & CD).  So I decided to check it out again.  In general I still feel the same.  It feels a little rushed & poorly mixed to me; I bet the songs are all fine, but it just seems like it’s not ripe in general & could be revisited for a remixing & remastering.  However, there is one huge exception & that’s a song called “The Him” which feels more Joy Division than Joy Division.  Here’s a live version of the song.
