AllMusic Review by

This five-song EP contains New Order's second single, "Everything's Gone Green"/"Procession," from September 1981, and third single, "Temptation," from May 1982. The singles, as relentless as the album tracks on Movement, their debut album, are more beat-oriented and feature the synthesizer more prominently; and on "Temptation," you can even make out the lyrics clearly, a New Order first. These songs headed New Order away from Joy Division and toward bands like Depeche Mode.
