Second and final LP by doomed Salford post-punk band Joy Division, this is perhaps most often cited their greatest moment. Recorded shortly before the untimely death of singer Ian Curtis, whose health deteriorated rapidly during the making of this album, and produced by Martin Hannet. Limited edition vinyl reissue.
9/10 Jack Customer review, 17th January 2015
Somehow, even through his surprisingly robotic, slightly off-key delivery, you know that Ian Curtis means it. He is authentic with every word, and you just know it. One of the defining Post-Punk bands, Joy Division would attract many followers, and rightly so - because they're just a simple, no-frills good band. Within the uncomplicated structures, hooks, and melodies is a kind of irreplaceable authenticity that sucks you into their depressed world-view and drags you down there with them. So much of the music rings true with the lyrics, a moderately lo-fi, stark sort of simple angularity that perfectly compliments Curtis as a front man.
