Joy Division

So...who else here loves this band? Their tense, dancey, ambient sound is so striking and was surely an influence on very early U2. They only recorded two albums (three if you count the aborted 'Warsaw') but in that small span of activity produced a markedly impassioned body of work. Too bad they only got to explore as a band for such a short time. If you haven't heard them, check them out.

I'm sure just about everybody on this forum likes a bit of Curtis and co action. I personally prefer Closer to Unknown Pleasures.

Disorder is probably my favourite song, and Unknown Pleasures is possibly a top ten album of mine.....

Amazing band. Both Unknown Pleasures and Closer are great records, although I'm leaning now towards the latter one as being my favourite (the last 5 songs or so are fantastic).

Plenty of non-album tracks that are equally amazing. Dead Souls

I will firmly maintain that Unknown Pleasures is a superior album to Closer. Songs like Disorder, She's Lost Control, and especially New Dawn Fades are fucking incredible. In fact, the only dud track on the album is I Remember Nothing, while I'm honestly not all that enthused by multiple tracks on Closer. That said, Atrocity Exhibition and Twenty Four Hours are exceptional.

Twenty Four Hours > The Eternal > Decades makes me want to kill myself. In a good way.

"Disorder" is brilliant. "Ceremony" ain't no slouch, either. The New Order version is immaculately recorded, and pretty much a note-for-note, word-for-word cover. Brilliant.

I've always liked Unknown Pleasures more. I love Closer but sometimes it's just a little too heavy for me to listen to all the way through...gotta be in the right mood. I also like the slightly dancier feel of Unknown Pleasures.

Amazing band.

Their music has such a unique feeling. Faith and Pornography by The Cure are the only albums that come close to the claustrophobic murk of Joy Division.

I see no need to listen to New Order when there's Joy Division.
