New Order’s recent outings have been spotty as of late. Still, expectation and speculation are rife for the band’s latest offering, Lost Sirens, a mini album made up of eight tracks condemned to seven years on ice. While the latest offering doesn’t find the UK outfit at the top of their game, it does play host to some infectious songs, overshadowing its parent album, 2005′s Waiting for the Sirens’ Call. The tracks, which the band emphasizes were originally slated for a double album, make for an intriguing enough anthology on their own. What’s more, this is likely to be the final release to feature Peter Hook’s hallmark bass work, something that won’t sit well with diehard fans.
