Quite simple really. Joy Division were absolutely amazing, while most of what New Order has done has been horribly uninteresting.

Joy Division


Their dark atmosphere and post-punk style is far more up my alley. I like the big New Order hits, but I've never gotten into them much past that.

If you don't think New Order is very interesting, you haven't listen to enough of it.

New Order is perhaps the most groundbreaking band of the 1980's, fusing Joy Division's cutting edge rock sound with the most up to date (or ahead of their time) club sounds.

Curtis had something interesting to say, but I'm not so sure there was much more gas in that tank. It's not worth it to me, giving up all those New Order albums, just to see what JD would have done next.

And the last thing--New Order sure knew how to write and record a great pop song. If you think Love Will Tear Us Apart fits that bill, you're not even close. Not that the non-single songs are all filler (especially on the brilliant, rocking side one of Brotherhood--tell me this doesn't eclipse Joy Division's finest hour), but christ, look at this list of singles:

Blue Monday
Temptation
Bizarre Love Triangle
The Perfect Kiss
True Faith
Fine Time
Regret
Confusion
Round and Round
Crystal
Age of Consent
Krafty
Subculture

Not even The Smiths had this many killer tracks. No fucking contest.

New Order really did no how to write a killer pop song.

I'm having a ridiculously hard time choosing one over the other though...hence the thread and discussion.

Don't presume to know what I have and haven't listened to. I've heard plenty of New Order. Apart from Movement, which is largely decent, most of their work ranges from boring to downright bad. I don't care how innovative or up-to-date the club sounds supposedly were; they're as uninspiring as piss.

That said, I think Joy Division would have headed down a similar path had Curtis stayed alive, which would just have made them another band to prove the general rule that great bands have an unhappy tendency to go to shit after a few great albums.

Simply because they started rave music...

Ever since I bought their Singles compilation I've been listening to a lot of New Order. What little I've heard of Joy Division I like but New Order wins here for the sheer number of delicious dance songs like True Faith, Bizarre..., Regret, Crystal etc.

By the looks of the poll results, I imagine my thought of a Love & Rockets > Bauhaus thread probably won't go over too well.

New Order.

I've never been able to get into Joy Division. Other than the obvious Love Will Tear Us Apart, the songs do nothing for me.
