To celebrate next week’s release of New Order’s Lost Sirens mini-album — which will be issued digitally here in the U.S. beginning Tuesday — the good folks at Rhino Records have gone analog, hooking us up with a set of all five of the band’s classic ’80s albums on vinyl to give away to one lucky Slicing Up Eyeballs reader.

The winner, who must reside in the U.S. (sorry, that’s Rhino’s rule), will get vinyl copies of:

As for Lost Sirens (which you can now stream in its entirety), the eight-track set of material left over from the Waiting for the Sirens’ Call sessions in 2005 — and likely the last “new” New Order release to feature departed bassist Peter Hook — will be released digitally in the U.S. and as both standalone CD and CD/vinyl combo editions in the U.K.

TO ENTER: Simply drop a comment at the bottom of this post naming your favorite absolute New Order album, and give us a few words on why you think it’s such a great record.

RULES: This contest is open to U.S. residents only and we’ll take entries until 12 p.m. EST Friday, Jan. 18. After that point, we’ll select one winner at random and contact him or her via e-mail — so please remember to use legit addresses when you enter. And if the winner doesn’t respond after one full week, we’ll select a new one. One entry per person, please.

 

UPDATE 1/18/13: The contest is now closed, and the winner will be contacted via e-mail. Thank you everybody for entering, and sharing your thoughts and memories about New Order.
