AllMusic Review by

New Order scored a hit all over again in the spring of 1988 with a remix of its 1983 song "Blue Monday," which became a U.K. Top Ten hit for the second time and made the U.S. singles chart, helping sales of the compilation Substance, which went on to become New Order's first gold and platinum success in America. "Production supervisor on remix" was Quincy Jones, the head of New Order's U.S. label, Qwest. This maxi-single contained both the remix and a dub version, along witb remix and dub versions of New Order's 1987 U.K. single "Touched by the Hand of God," for a running time of nearly 27 minutes.
