Reviews - What do customers think about True Faith: An Armchair Guide to New Order: Joy Division, Electronic, Monaco and The Other Two?
Interesting book for the casual to moderate New Order fan Jun 8, 2005
As a fan of New Order and their side projects I found this book to be a pretty interesting collection of details, reviews and anecdotes about Joy Division, New Order and their various outside work. I learned quite a bit about the back story behind the fall of Factory and the switch to London records that I did not know about. If you have not been a slavish fan of the bands who clips articles from the music press you'll find this pretty entertaining. For die hard fans who spend all their time on worldinmotion.net and neworderonline.com there is little new here that hasn't been hashed over 1000x in the forums.
It's a quick read and contains nuggets about their career most people don't even know about (Be Music & the influence of their manager Rob Gretton R.I.P). it will keep you busy this summer while waiting for the follow up album to Waiting For the Siren's Call (not mentioned in the book BTW) that's been hotly discussed among NO fans and confirmed by the band.
