“Peter Hook & The Light deliver these songs better than the current line-up of New Order” - Drowned In Sound
Released in 1987, New Order's Substance was originally conceived as a way for Factory Records boss, Tony Wilson, to play the New Order singles on the CD player of his new Jaguar car. Substance became Factory Records’ 200th release and remains the best selling New Order album.
Running from "Ceremony" in 1981 up to "True Faith" in 1987 the set takes in the high points of New Order's catalogue, including “Blue Monday”, "Bizarre Love Triangle", "Temptation", "True Faith", "The Perfect Kiss" to name a few.
