  1. Technique

    Technique is the fifth studio album by New Order, released in 1989 via Factory Records. Partly recorded on the island of Ibiza, it incorporates Balearic beat and acid house influences into the group's electronic rock sound. Technique was the first New Order album to reach number one in the UK charts. "Fine Time", the first single lifted from it, reached number 11. Remixed versions of "Round & Round" and "Run" were also released as singles. John Denver's publishing company filed a lawsuit, alleging that the guitar break in "Run" too closely resembled Denver's "Leaving on a Jet Plane". The case was settled out of court. An instrumental version of "Vanishing Point" was used on the BBC series Making Out. Music videos were produced for the three singles. In 2008 the album was re-released in a Collector's Edition with a bonus disc.

Examples of technique in a Sentence

  1. Curtis Penix:

    I’ve heard of Wes Barnett, I think I may have met him, but I was not aware it had been that long, i adjusted my technique in the snatch in the build-up to these championships, which made a difference, and it was always in the back of my mind that I could win a medal here.

  3. Sigmund Freud:

    The analytic psychotherapist thus has a threefold battle to wage -- in his own mind against the forces which seek to drag him down from the analytic level; outside the analysis, against opponents who dispute the importance he attaches to the sexual instinctual forces and hinder him from making use of them in his scientific technique; and inside the analysis, against his patients, who at first behave like opponents but later on reveal the overvaluation of sexual life which dominates them, and who try to make him captive to their socially untamed passion.

  4. Doctor Alejandro Chvez-Badiola:
