From Q magazine
The full remastered horror from New Order's bassist's first solo venture. Peter Hook, was so miffed when Bernard Sumner formed Electronic with Johnny Marr in 1989 that he did New Order all over again without him, or indeed "The Other Two". The result was not inspiration-free, but every New Order signature was reprised in rockier, paler form, with only Hook's bass stomping through. Even he, though, now admits he chose the wrong guitarist / vocalist in Dave Hicks. The best moments here, The Wilding and Televive, are new recordings of unreleased tracks from the period - they now open the album, which indicates he's learnt his lesson. Martin Aston
