Joy Division "Unknown Pleasures" LP

Joy Division again, but this time their other LP, called “Unknown Pleasures”. I told you I am on a Joy Division trip. I was actually buying these in reverse order, I mean, this one comes before “Closer“. In the sound you can definitely hear that they evolved out of the Punk scene even more on this LP than the second. I don’t know which one I like best, but to me the consolation of listening to the B-side “Closer”, never fades. So with that being said the choice is made. Although “Unknown Pleasures” is more well known and has more classics. It’s a close call.

The cover is made in textured cardboard, I didn’t make a picture because I want to keep it in the shrink wrap and it’s impossible to capture the relief with that shrink wrap. It comes in a white printed inner. The vinyl is also 180 grams and feels real good holding it in your hands.

This record was originally recorded and released in 1979. Has a keyboard involved so this is Post-Punk and New Wave combined together to create an atmospheric sound with varying rhythm and Punk basslines.
