Oh damn. Joy Division hits hard. A sound like nothing before or since. Darker and more moving than any of artist. And what a story they had; all over within a few years.

But no other band has achieved more than Joy Division did in their time together.

If you could just see the beauty, these things I could never describe.
These pleasures a wayward distraction, this is my one lucky prize.

Though they had only two albums, they are a definitive Post-Punk band, Unknown Pleasures is one of the best albums of the 70's

One of the greatest bands of all time, influenced Punk Rock, Gothic Rock, and of course Post-Punk massively. And all of this in just two albums, that takes effort.
