"I'll stay with you/Till hell freezes over," Bernard Sumner intones on the ninth New Order album. Chances are he's not referring to his bandmates: Allegedly the final release from the massively influential dance-rock group's original lineup (bassist Peter Hook departed in 2007), Lost was cobbled of outtakes from its previous album, 2005's lackluster Waiting for the Siren's Call. Surprisingly, it's a much better record. The mesmeric dance-floor electronics on tracks such as "Shake It Up" recall Eighties classics like "Blue Monday," while Sumner's six-string chime and plangently defiant vocals make this accidental swan song feel industrial-grade wistful.
