AllMusic Review by

New Order turned entirely toward a dance approach on the 12-inch single "Blue Monday," resulting in their biggest single hit ever, Top Ten in the U.K., and high in the U.S. dance charts. The single's B-side, "The Beach," is an instrumental version of "Blue Monday." (Originally released on Factory Records in March 1983, "Blue Monday" was reissued by Qwest Records in June 1985, and reissued a second time in a remixed version as "Blue Monday 1988" in April 1988.)
