The second album by New Order, released on 02 May 1983.
With its electronic-based sound it marks the definitive turning away from the rather gloomy predecessor and the Joy Division legacy. The album was included in the top 100 albums of the 1980s lists in the Rolling Stone magazine.
The cover features a reproduction of the painting "A Basket of Roses" by French artist Henri Fantin-Latour, which Saville found on a postcard he bought at the National Gallery. His then girlfriend Martha Ladly (of Martha & The Muffins) asked him if he was going to use it for the cover. He then realised it was a great idea.
The album cover was chosen by the Royal Mail for a set of "Classic Album Cover" postage stamps issued in January 2010.
