Joy Division and New Order – Total (2011)

This is most likely an opportunity to discover Joy Division for those who one way or the other miss the end of the 70s, beginning of the 80s, rather than something spectacular for fans. Songs taken in chronological order and placed in the timeline since “Transmission” by Joy Division released in 1979 till “Krafty” from New Order’s latest album, “”Waiting for the Sirens’ Call”, released in 2005, plus a previously unreleased track, “Hellbent” from the same era. Joy Division enjoy the well deserved cult status while New Order gained eventually respect, otherwise many criticism being Joy Division minus the unrepeatable Ian Curtis. Joy Division were pioneers of the post-punk era, their gloomy, dark sound influenced considerably many following generation, they were quite “emo” long before “emo” was invented as expression and label. On the other hand, New Order get on a much more radio friendly and new wave path of the music…
