Joy Divison’s debut masterpiece Unknown Pleasures, with it’s iconic Peter Saville album art is regarded as a pioneering and influential post punk album. Produced by Martin Hannett it featured guilt-ridden, romantic and claustrophobic tracks such as ‘Disorder’, ‘She’s Lost Control, ‘Shadow Play’ and ‘New Dawn Fades.' The album has been named as one of the best albums of all-time by NME, Mojo, Pitchfork, Q, Rolling Stone and Spin.
Closer the second and final album for Joy Division was highly acclaimed, and is often cited as Joy Division's finest work. Featuring breathtaking and irresistible tracks ‘Isolation’, ‘Atrocity Exhibition’ and ‘Decades’. Closer was vital, impossible to resist or ignore. A flawless expression.
