Electronic: Electronic (Special Edition) – album review"

To look for comparisons with The Smiths, New Order and Joy Division is to overlook a record that stands on its own. On paper a collaboration between Bernard Sumner and Johnny Marr promises something different, and this is perhaps what later Electronic releases became, but what we have instead is a great electro-pop record and a deserved reissuing of something that should be regarded as a ‘classic’.
