Get Ready is an album by English rock band New Order. The song "Turn My Way" features contributing vocals from Billy Corgan. The album was released on August 27, 2001. Earlier that year, Corgan performed as a touring guitarist at select New Order shows. It was the first appearance of Corgan following The Smashing Pumpkins' 2000 breakup.[1]

Corgan's involvement materialized from his long-standing friendship with Peter Hook. "I first met him when he was 15 and thinking of forming a band," said Hook. "He was a big fan of Joy Division and New Order, and he came to dinner with us one day as a friend of the promoter."[2] Corgan's influence is evident on "Turn My Way", which begins with Pumpkin-esque noise and Corgan's voice, taking the song into American rock territory.[3]

Reception[edit | edit source]

Get Ready received generally positive reviews from music critics. David Browne of Entertainment Weekly opined that New Order have "never sounded stronger or more vigorous", calling Get Ready "a stunning and confident return to form".[4] Robert Christgau of The Village Voice deemed it the band's best album "in 15 years",[5] while AllMusic critic John Bush described the record as "their first work in 15 years that's focused on songwriting and performance rather than grafted dance techniques."[6] Q listed Get Ready as one of the best 50 albums of 2001.[7]
