Today marks the 12th edition of a special series within my weekly feature, Friday On The Turntable - instead of looking at one album, I am featuring all of the studio albums from the UK band - New Order - and ranking them. It was a mammoth task, and proved frustrating when putting albums that I love against other ones that I love. Nonetheless, I've provided a ranked list - from #8 (good) - #1 (the best).
If you would like the short / textual version of the list, please scroll past the video. If you would like to watch my video discussion, check out the embedded video below - and be sure to click 'Subscribe' on my Youtube channel - for immediate access to all of my video posts. As always, I look forward to reading your comments and feedback. Click on any of the album titles if you'd like to purchase them. At the very bottom of this article is a link to a playlist of New Order that I created in Spotify, which features my 3 favorite songs from each album. :)
And as always, here is a link to my band Audra's Bandcamp Site. Thank you!
The text/pics version is below - don't scroll down yet if you want to enjoy the video.
