“Unknown Pleasures” (40th Anniversary Edition) , Joy Division
Rhino Records, 2019
Ashley’s pick: How does a record sound when it’s 40 years old but hasn’t aged a day? It sounds an awful lot like Joy Division’s debut. This is the band, and the album, that defined a genre. It created a sound and a mood that has never truly ever been replicated. Joy Division play with robotic precision but ironically these songs are as human as music can be and Ian Curtis’ moan is felt in your soul and aches in your bones. Celebrate the 40th anniversary of this landmark album with this beautifully reissued 180 gram version on limited edition red vinyl.
