A good find thanks to BEA.
Am I the only one who get chill when New Dawn Fades comes out?
Ok, screw everything I've ever said about this album. I don't know how I could have possibly been so wrong. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite albums.
I listened to this album for the first time sometime last year, and since then, I have absolutely hated it. But it seems it is finally growing on me. While Ian Curtis undeniably is not the best singer, the music really is extremely good, and is almost enough for me to overlook his singing.
"Lacks anything catchy. The atmosphere is there though. Sound has been improved by many successors."
Music doesn't need to be catchy to make a statement or be deeply inspiring.
Unknown Pleasures is the sound of manic depression. It truly captures the disorder as well as anything ever has.
Bands have been trying to re-create this sound for decades, and they fail to capture the urgency every single time.
Melancholic yet punky. Brilliance.
from the very first moment until the end of shadowplay is the best thing ever happened in post punk. but i don't like the last three songs that much.
While I see the influence it obviously had, and I like the tonal plays of the guitar, bass and vocals, (not a fan of the drums), this album just doesn't find me, like I would want it to. Maybe in time.
One of the best debut albums. Absolutely miserable but undeniably brilliant. Day Of The Lords, She's Lost Control and New Dawn Fades being my personal favourites.
Some really good songs, but after the first half I got bored.
