So farkin good, man.
Just greatness after greatness.
Still sounds incredible. I've been watching some Joy Division/Factory docs recently and the band thought Hannet had completely fucked up the production. How wrong can you be.
but I much prefer Unknown Pleasures to Closer.
it's just completely engrossing.
both albums are amazing so it's pretty much ok to prefer either of them.
For me UP is one of the greatest debut albums of all time, thrilling, brilliant but uneven. Closer is a fully realised, utterly beautiful, absolutely perfect work of art but probably a little less exciting than UP.
I prefer Closer but only by a whisker.
It's easily the better.
