Well, it's "Reagan Era" at least...

" I used to think that the day would never come..."

New Order releases Waiting for the Sirens' Call in the US on April 26. Most of it is available on iTunes now. It's their strongest release since 1990's Technique.

A review I read tonight hits the nail on the head as to why Waiting has entered UK charts at number 5 last week and has fans remembering why they loved this band so much.

Bill Lamb of

"Steering away from 2001's guitar-heavy
Get Ready, on Waiting For the Sirens Call New Order once again embrace a universe of instantly memorable pop hooks infused with an ever-present, but never oppressive, air of melancholy. It is music slow to sink in and possibly will even seem ephemeral at first listen, but when heard multiple times it is an album you will want to hear again and again. From the shiny pop-rock of "Morning Night and Day" to the Kraftwerkian electronics of "Krafty," Waiting For the Sirens Call is a pop masterpiece that ranks with the band's best work."
