"Murder" is a great statement of evolution from New Order – a track that has a title that would have been right at home in the Joy Division years, and the same sort of heavy drums you'd hear on Closer – but a more far-reaching sense of progression as the murky vocals mix with all sorts of nice guitar clusters and electronic elements! The track is backed by "Thieves Like Us" – a fantastically tuneful single from New Order – but one that also still has the group at their best pre-pop level – catchy, but moody at the same time – with really strong basswork from Peter Hook, and a keyboard line that's light and dreamy as a nice contrast!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

One of the first really catchy songs to ever come from New Order – but served up here on a single that still retains some of the moodier elements of their Joy Division years! At some level, "Everything's Gone Green" is almost a blueprint for everything that would follow – ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
