"[Low-Life's] varied menu of soul-pop, techno-rock, delicate instrumental moods, and driving, clattering percussion offers adventure in texture at every turn." - Los Angeles Times New Order are delighted to release the definitive edition of their 1985 studio album Low-Life. The 2-disc collection includes rare and unreleased material, including instrumentals of “Love Vigilantes” and “Sub-Culture," along with the “Album Session Unedited Version” of “Sooner Than You Think.” Low-Life was originally recorded in 1984 at Jam and Britannia Row Studios as the band's third full-length studio album, self-produced by the band. It is considered to be among the band's strongest work, displaying the moment they completed their transformation from post-punk hold-overs to dance-rockers. The album shows New Order's increased incorporation of synthesisers and samplers, while still preserving the rock elements of their earlier work.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
