Republic is a solid album, but not necessarily what most fans would consider a great New Order album. The album is rooted in early-nineties house music. But, well, that was a good time for dance music -- the beats are fast and detailed without being too aggressive, and the album sounds much more lively than a lot of later nineties techno. Furthermore, the focus is on the keyboard melodies, all of which display New Order's signature style. This saves the album from sounding dated, even in the few places where it kind of is.
