Probably one of the most acclaimed albums of the post punk era, New Order's 1985 LP, Lowlife, is also one of the best electronic rock albums of all time. As the band became more accessible - even chart-friendly - New Order's sound and stark image continued to evolve, setting a template that the Manchester, U.K. quartet would follow for the rest of their long career.

The most striking thing about Lowlife is the songs. Where in their previous efforts, New Order had weaved instrumental experiments amongst the more conventional fare, Lowlife is more flowing, more continual, and makes a broader statement. When boiled down to its essence, that statement is that electronic-based dance music doesn't have to be cold, distant, or robotic; rather, New Order were the first new wave band to humanize the dance medium - even if they had to polarize it, in a sense, to do so.

Simply put, with Lowlife, New Order would begin to stake out two emotive territories - the crowded club floor and the lonely, isolated bedroom. Songs written from these seemingly at-odds points of view mesh seamlessly, however, making the band over into a newly complex creature, and pushing the Lowlife LP into territory only hinted at in the first two New Order records.

New Order live, 1985, 'Love Vigilantes'

The best song in the history of the world.
