Movement is the sound of New Order searching for their own musical path after the suicide of Ian Curtis signaled the end of Joy Division. The album paints an extremely vivid picture that the band was struggling to find their own identity. The ghost of Ian Curtis hangs over each song like decaying bark. For starters, Bernard Sumner affects such a deep croon that it could be seen as an attempt to mimic the sad and somber vocal style of Curtis. When his vocals aren't deep enough, producer Martin Hannett steps in with a sound processor, and one is left with the unsettling notion that the band is treading on ground that almost smells of exploitation. Movement's music is strangely non-energized. The sound experimentation of Joy Division, much of it courtesy of Hannett, is everywhere. Tribal beats mar much of the album, as they relentlessly arise on nearly every song. Etched sound effects and weird tweaked and warped synth washes rise and bubble throughout. But what worked beautifully with Curtis at the creative helm barely gets New Order off the launch pad.
