Is the best joy division song."
Its good, but it doesn't have a mood to it.
There are so many better others. See:
Everything on Closer
Feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling ,feeling, feeeeeeeeeeeeling.
'closer' knocks 'unknown pleasures' into a cocked hat. i think disorder DOES have a mood though, a pretty chaotic one. FEELING FEELING FEELING FEELING FEELING FEEEEEEE-LING.
But it does take the whole song to get to it.
Candidate, and Side Two of UP are just not that good. Its WELL over-rated.
The rest of the songs are super though.
it has the best intro to any song, ever.
Drums, then bass, then guitar, the vocals. It's like the band is being introduced one by one.
with the original post.
'Disorder' was the one that got me into em, not 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' or any of the more frequently played radio friendlier ones - not that there's anything wrong with those songs either, of course!
who thinks 'love will tear us apart' is a shit song?
what's the point to it? it's like a little advertising jingle.
There's nothing wrong with melodic hooks.
It completly slays, the drums are so much punchier and the guitar is really grimy sounding.
there's one on CD4 of the Heart And Soul boxset. Thing is, everything sounds low and muffled in the mix. I can imagine a decent recording of it sounding spot on though.
you do think - "this is better than life itself"
it's that low note at the end of the decending riff, you think "hang on, he just hit a bum note" but then NO! it's meant to be like that! <3
and the Live in Les Bains Douches version COMPLETELY kicks ass, except that ian fucks up the ending and doesnt sing enough "feeling"s
That's the live version i've got, that whole album is great. It shows a far more vicious side to the band. Shadowplay is also particularly ace live.
fucking sick it is.
this thread was going to be about the legendary punk band Disorder for whom I played a few gigs in Germany for.
I don't rate Joy Division.
I don't rate you.
does that make me a heathen?
i love it too, though my fave is probably The Eternal or Decades
