A boxed set, by one of the greatest bands ever, New Order. How can you go wrong? Well here is my ratings on each of the discs...

DISC 1. This could well just be called a greatest hits, minus a few songs, and plus a few songs. With songs like "Ceremony," "True Faith," and "Crystal," the disc just seems like a number of songs from many different era's put together on one great disc.
Rating: 8 of 10

DISC 2. The second disc seems mainly to be a bunch of personal favourites of the band put together on one album. Most of the songs have been released elsewhere, but nevertheless, the second disc is great. Plus, it has "Your Silent Face" on it, which automatically makes it a great album.
Rating: 8.5 of 10

DISC 3. I am not one for all the mixes and remixes normally, but New Order did, in this case, manage to put together almost all their best remixes and load them onto one extremely dancy disc. The standouts are the "1963" mix and the "Here To Stay" insturmental mix.
Rating: 6 of 10

DISC 4. In the early days of New Order, Bernard Sumner's voice live really did get to me. I used to think he couldn't sing very well...but thankfully for us, they don't use old live performances here! It is a great disc full of songs from various concerts from '93 to 2002. And track 14, "Turn My Way," even features Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan on guitar and vocals.
Rating: 9 of 10

All in all, this is a great buy, but I really wouldn't recommend getting it as a first New Order buy. It cost me 60 dollars, and I got it for cheap! So, keep that in mind...
