Waiting for the Sirens' Call

The Age reviews New Order's new album, drawing attention to Bernard Sumner's uniquely leaden songwriting:
Guilt Is a Useless Emotion provides the classic dodgy lines: "Real love can't be bought/It is wild and it can't be caught."

And below that, it accuses New Order of having been "the whitest - that is, most blindingly uptight - disco band in the world" (not that that's a bad thing; one doesn't listen to New Order for the same reason one listens to, say, Prince).

Was True Faith about falling in love with a person or falling in love with your sequencer?

Neither, actually -- it was about heroin.
