Any Joy Division fans on UG?
IMO there one of the best british bands of all time!
#5
im gonna burn in rock hell for saying this, but i dont really like them. i find them very dry. i like a couple songs, but when i put on unknown pleasures i just get bored.

i prefer new order. anyone like them ?
#7
I actually can't stand New Order. I like Joy Division, though. I need to write myself a note or something as a reminder to get Closer.
#8
I'm ashamed of myself that I haven't bothered to listen to more than 6 songs from them.
#9
I like them, but Closer is one of the most overrated albums of all time.
#10
I love Joy Division and New Order.

Though they're nowhere near as good without Ian.
you tell me who's better. i think good charlote are better than the bealtes but that's only because their lyrics mean more and they are better musicians.

Yeah, same, there's something about New Order that I can't stomach, I don't even know what it is.

I need to look into more Joy Division though, I only have a few songs.

Me too. That's not to say that I hate Joy Division, I just prefer a larger amount of New Order's material (apart from when they play live, I've not seen one performance where they've come off well).

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Aren't Joy Division one of those bands where a thread saying how great they are is unnecessary? Surely their brilliance is obvious to anyone with ears.
#18
Meh, they're okay but I always thought theyre kinda boring.

for once, i agree with publicwitness ahaha

What album should I get first, people?


they have only released 2 studio albums, 'unknown pleasures' and 'closer'. 'closer' is the last album before Ian hung himself (RIP), therefore it is much more grittier and dark. 'unknown pleasures', while not as dark, is still a brilliant album, def in my top 10, its got some of the best production ive ever heard.

so i wud go with UP as an intro, and then get closer

I love em. Dead Souls is one of my favorite songs at the moment.

Joy Division are great. I've only got Closer and a couple of MP3s, and there are some weak tracks amongst them, but Love Will Tear Us Apart is like one of my top 10 favourite songs ever. The horns in the middle just give it something beautiful. Something Must Break and These Days are excellent as well.

Unknown Pleasures is all I've heard and own and it's a masterpiece.

Yeah Closer has a lot of boring songs. However Atrocity Exhibition, Isolation, Heart and Soul and the closer (no pun intended) are all bangers.

^ Nope.

If you ask me, if you're trying to get into Joy Division, get Substance first. It's got alot of the singles and b-sides collected; the albums aren't as catchy and will take you longer to get into... and alot of new fans don't want to listen to something like Unknown Pleasures 20 times before they really dig it.

and in case anybody didn't know, there should be an Ian Curtis biopic coming out next year... Anton Corbjin is directing.

Are all their songs as bland as Love Will Tear Us Apart?

Not really a fan.

Unknown Pleasures pwns. Need to get Closer though.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

but on topic, i only have closer and i hardly listen to it, but when i do i enjoy it a lot

Closer > Unknown Pleasures, in my opinion. Unknown pleasures just felt a little too. . . bland.

Closer is the Joy Division Masterpiece. It's like JUST before the original band would have turned into New Order
