Power, Corruption & Lies [Collector's Edition] (Bonus Tracks)
by New Order
Released: Mar 1983
Label: Rhino/Warner Bros.
The second in Rhino's 2008 reissues of New Order's '80s albums, this edition of New Order's landmark 1983 album catches the act at a transitional moment. Appended to the original eight-song set of guitar-based indie and DIY disco -- after singles "Blue Monday" and "The Beach," long included in CD reissues -- are electrofunk attempts "Confusion" and "Thieves Like Us"; "Murder," a shrieking post-punk mantra with proto-death metal vocals, suggest paths not taken (perhaps wisely).
