Get Ready is the seventh studio album by English rock band New Order. Recorded between 2000 and 2001 and released in August 2001 by record label London, Get Ready was the group's first album in eight years, following 1993's Republic. This was the last New Order album featuring the classic lineup.
Peter Hook said of the album's title "The title of the album is Get Ready so it could mean anything or nothing. I thought it was just nice; New Order, Get Ready; 'cause we are, we're getting ready for the next phase of our musical lives both physically and mentally, so it's quite a simple thing but it's very pertinent."
The album features cover art directed by Peter Saville and designed by Howard Wakefield, who have also designed covers for other New Order and Joy Division albums. The cover model is German actress Nicolette Krebitz.
Get Ready has been generally well received by critics. The album currently holds an approval rating of 72/100 on review aggregator website Metacritic.David Browne of Entertainment Weekly opined that New Order have "never sounded stronger or more vigorous", calling the album "A stunning and confident return to form". John Bush of AllMusic wrote "their first work in 15 years that's focused on songwriting and performance rather than grafted dance techniques".Q wrote "New Order have made better records than this, but not many with such an emotional charge and the expansive noise to carry it off... [...] Get Ready is the sound of a great band breaking free of their past before your ears."
