FACT > Initially created for Factory’s US subsidiary, this EP compiles three of New Order’s earliest singles—transitional productions that effectively formed a bridge between the group’s first album, “Movement”, and their second, “Power, Corruption & Lies.” This CD issue from 1989 was exclusive to Canada, and alters the track order from the original US edition. Also, FEP 313 printed on the insert is the catalog number for the Canadian 12″; this cover text is more commonly seen as FACTUS 8, the proper Factory US catalog code.

In the comments of the previous post, Asteroid327 suggested soliciting Top 10 lists of favorite New Order songs. Fair enough—I’ll start the ball rolling:
