AllMusic Review by

Total: From Joy Division to New Order, issued by Rhino U.K. in 2011, is an unavoidably awkward attempt at distilling the output of two connected bands to a single disc. Should you happen to want the biggest hits and an assortment of highlights, this might do the trick: “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” “Blue Monday,” and “Bizarre Love Triangle” are all included. Both Joy Division and New Order released crucial studio albums and were the subjects of landmark singles compilations. This release drastically shortchanges their legacies. There is no point to the disc's existence, unless you factor the one previously unreleased outtake -- a weak one at that -- recorded by New Order in 2005.
