#468 Joy Division – Closer

Joy Division‘s Closer was released two months after the death of lead singer Ian Curtis. This album is the bridge from their debut to New Order‘s debut album. The remaining members formed New Order after Curtis’s suicide.

My favourite songs are all of them. I would listen to the whole album. There is no filler on it.

This is an excellent album. I think it is a masterpiece. Each song has a mood, a bleak mood that sinks into your soul. Curtis’ had a sadness in his voice that conveyed what he must have been feeling, but I wonder if anyone was listening. I would not listen to Closer on a sad day. It can move you to tears and depression. 10/10.
