I like New Order better than Joy Division. I can only take so much of Ian Curtis' voice.

Joy Division has the coolest bass sound EVAR. Can't get enough of it. Ian Curtis' voice, yes. Peter Hook, no.

New Order is more feel-good obviously, but much better to dance to than Joy Division.

new order always struck me as the bad kind of 80s music, i never could get into them. feel-goody happy music? no wonder i don't like it. joy division makes me happy.

the killers version of "shadowplay" sucks in a way that is almost a musical crime. way to take a kickass song and make it boring.

That is a very cool movie. Great lead performance by whoever that dude is that plays Curtis.

I really liked the movie, and it made me give Joy Division another try. But nope, still don't like his voice. I like the songs, though, so it just made me bummed that his voice bugs me so much.

Sorry, dead guy.

I think they really had their own sound, their wasn't a broad-application for it, nor were they going to be master artists in terms of music composition or sound-production, but they were definitely influential on the 80's sound that followed, however (and this is coming from someone who listens to JD) their cemented place in history both in influence and in popularity stems from the unfortunate unbalance of their songwriter much like Nirvana, neither were completely written off and unpopular prior to the deaths, but they certainly gained a following, legend and influence as a result of those events. That said, you can very much doubt that the mood they got across or the pain they explored would come from someone a little more run-of-the-mill and stable.


All that said, Shadowplay is one of the coolest songs ever, same with Transmission.

yeah, that's what my buddy from work was saying, i need to see that. i'm still working on tracking it down. i'm thinking i'll sign up for netflix, get that for my 2 week free trial and then cancel. i meant to keep an eye out for it to come to one of the small, independent theaters around here when it came out, but if it did i completely missed it.

You're probably at least partially right as their deaths certainly added another dimension to their songs, but I think its also a case of both bands not having a chance to fuck up their legacies.

True, which adds to what I meant about their legacies being cemented by those events.

Also, question Jive, what the heck is your avatar?

People didn't like U2's and Arcade Fire's version of Love Will Tear Us Apart but they liked The Cure's version of this song.
