9/10 Jack 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.
