Meanwhile, at the dancing part of town  . . . 
“True Faith” continues its ascendancy in the charts, Written for the singles compilation album “Substance 1987” it would be the first New Order song chart in the Hot 100 and even get inside the Top 40 (peaking at #32). Substance (released in August) included all the singles up to that point as their B-sides and also new versions of “Temptation” and “Confusion”. The whole album is full of bangers (for example Blue Monday” and “Bizarre Love Triangle”) and has become one of their most popular critically acclaimed.
This remix was included in the 12″ UK version.

The re-recorded version of Temptation is a 20.

It would be fair to say that the vast majority of people in 1988 had NO clue that this was a remake.

I dare say that this one might be a case of cultural policing inhibiting a genuinely interesting artistic statement, in which if we stay this course, artists will be forced to work within such narrow parameters that we will be left with nothing but innocuous and predictable art.

Came here to say the same thing. Looks like Beck’s touring guitarist too. Honestly made me wonder if Annie Clark had become a Scientologist — it would explain her kinda odd vibe and career choices the past 5 years or so.
