The Best of Joy Divison (2 Discs Special)



I am starting to really get into Joy Division. Is this album good? I am happy that it features such hits as "Disorder," "She's Lost Control," and "New Dawn Fades." But maybe it's a "grab bag" and Unknown Pleasures represents them as a band better. I don't know. Thoughts?

They only have two albums. Either pick up Unknown Pleasures and Closer or, if you want a collection, pick up Substance.

I said I wasn't gonna buy it (cause they only had two albums proper), but did anyway, which is my first Joy Division purchase.....
it's sweet, hearing some songs I've heard but never knew the names of......

It's just great to have compilation if I need to hear myself some Joy Division from time to time.

I'll probably buyUnknown Pleasures eventually anyway.....being a classic album, just something that I never got 'round to doing and then this compilation was released.....

Top sig by the way. Blur's 'Far Out' is a top tune.

I don't know why anyone would buy the Best Of for a band that only has 2 albums out. For rarities maybe?

I did just cause I wanted meself some Joy Division....and this has LWTUA, Transmission and Atmosphere, which are all anthems which weren't on the album.

It's a fair-enough compilation when you consider that factor.

Okay, but if money isn't a factor, then why not go for this?:

http://www.amazon.com/Heart-Soul-Joy...9347537&sr=8-1

You only get everything the band's ever put out.

I'd never seen it in music stores. It's quite expensive as well......would be a an enjoyable investment, but I wouldn't part with that money as a first sampling of Joy-Divvy.

Problem is, once you've sampled through a Best Of, what's the next step? Get the albums where you already have half the songs on them?

The whole thing doesn't make much sense to me, but that's okay, it's probably a cracker.

It is. And it is kinda pointless, but it still satisfies.

Would I get the albums when I've already heard 'alf the songs on them. Yeah probably, but that's nothing new. Didn't stop me from buying every U2 album after I'd bought the best of's.

Probably just worth it to get the tracks off of iTunes or something instead of buying the albums again.

Sure, it's not a hard copy, but you save money in the long run.

I am still sorrowful that Ian ended his life so quickly. If he didn't, there would be more Joy Division material. The Joy Division legacy would of increased but it still lives on!

Thanks for your help guys.

Well LMP, that's pretty much what I posted in the first place...what's the point of all these best ofs for Joy Division when they only had two albums, but it all really comes down to money in the end so

But rarities and bootlegs are cool too. Some of U2's best songs are rare like, Mercy, Always, North and South of the River, etc. But you are right, it comes down to the money, bono_212.

I've said this before, but I can't imagine a world without New Order's music in it.

So I can't really be that upset about Curtis' untimely demise.
