Unknown Pleasures album for sale Product Description



Unknown Pleasures album for sale by Joy Division was released Oct 30, 2007 on the Rhino (Label) label. If U.K. punk was the outward expression of nihilism and youthful rebellion, the music of Joy Division signaled a sea change toward its bleaker, darker, more introspective side--in the process, giving birth to an influential, highly original sound that was to have recurring echoes in the subsequent goth, new wave, and post-punk movements. Quickly following on the heels of an aborted album for RCA, the band regrouped with producer Martin Hannett for their 1979 debut, UNKNOWN PLEASURES.   ...See Full Description

A Masterpiece
Unknown Pleasures CD music Manchester, in the late 70's and early 80's was pretty much a dead post-industrial atmosphere with manufacturing industries long since shut down and people out of work. It's no wonder then why stark, bleak introspective music came out of Manchester in the late seventies and eighties - The Smiths and Joy Division being the key examples here. Although you won't find any jangly guitar-pop here. This album is extremely dark and atmospheric post-punk, although the opener disorder is quite upbeat; infact the only upbeat track on the album. This is worth buying even if you don't like dark music, because it's sheer honesty makes it so easy to relate to no matter where you live or what your situation is. If you like Joy Division you may also enjoy Gang Of Four, Bauhaus, New Order, Morrissey/The Smiths, PIL and XTC. Best songs - Disorder, Day Of The Lords, Insight, She's Lost Control, Shadowplay.

The sound of horror...
Unknown Pleasures buy CD music Every now and then, there emerges a group who appear to come from nowhere, that can turn rock music upside down. Joy Division were such a group. I was very fortunate to see them perform in early 1980, and can say that I was in the presence of something truly epic. Their debut album was a magnificent statement of intent that was at total odds with the prevailing music scene at the time. Fusing Can with The Stooges and early Doors,("Interzone" is obviously in debt to The Ig and crew... ) Martin Hannett's production was massively influential in determining the ominous aura of dread that was being projected. Sadly, Ian Curtis didn't live to see the impact he made, but the legacy has remained intact nearly thirty years on.

Absolutely amazing!
This is comfortably Joy Division's finest hour! All the songs are amazing, especially Disorder, New Dawn Fades, and She's Lost Control. The perfect mix of superb lyrics, superb music, and superb production. Also a phenomenally influential album. Essential!!

Essential 1979 punk album
This is one of best punk albums released in 1979 along side the Undertones' self-titled debut, the Jam's "All Mod Cons" and Gang of Four's "Entertainment." "Unknown Pleasures" is a stark and moody album but also has some rocking moments. If you only buy one Joy Division album, make sure its this one.
