This is a lot of fun, never been the biggest CV fan but I like this.

You should check out the final 3 CV albums that came out on Instinct (at least in the US) Plasticity, International Language, and The Conversation. Very much of this style (though maybe a little lower in the BPMs?) as are his Sandoz/Electronic Eye/"Richard H. Kirk" releases circa roughly '93-'97...

Completely agreed. Love everything his made during this era but I am a sucker for that early 90s sound.

I feel like most people don’t rate those last few albums, and I never really understood why. 

SO many gems in the Sandoz/Electronic Eye catalog.

Virtual State is one of my all-time favorites.

 

Me too. World War III is one of my all time favorite tracks. Super funky.

Virtual State is great, as is The Number Of Magic and Electronic Eye's Closed Circuit and The Idea Of Justice. I think I'm going to get the Sandoz box next. Although Cabaret Voltaire is historically significant I've never been a huge fan, this new album has its moments but I'd still rather go back to those mentioned above.

Well I’m not really blown away by this at first listen, but I would get why fans of their older stuff would like it. 
 

The first few Sandoz albums easily stand up with the best dubby ambient techno albums of that era.

I mean, come on:

      The trio of Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire), Ben Edwards (Stendec, Tennis, Volume, Fader), and Phil Winter has announced their third LP with the release of a new single, “Anthropocene”. If you haven't listened to them before, their debut album LA Spark is particularly good.

      1st solo album since 2011!
       
      Really looking forward to this.  The Sandoz box set really renewed my interest in him.

      "New Order will return this autumn with their first album in over a decade, Music Complete.
       
      Largely produced by the band themselves, with a couple of tracks of helmed by The Chemical Brothers Tom Rowlands, Music Complete features vocals from Brandon Flowers, Iggy Ppop and La Roux.
       
      The first track to be unveiled from the album, however, is a straight-up New Order offering titled Restless, which finds the group contemplating life in the modern world. The single will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally on October 9, while Music Complete is out on September 25 on CD, download and limited edition clear vinyl. There will also be an eight-piece deluxe vinyl collection including the album plus extended versions of all 11 tracks on coloured vinyl."
