Great choice. I always thought it's quite a cathartic listen.

It’s so great. It’s weird though that it opens with “Disorder,” and that “Disorder” is so goddamn good, because that song really isn’t a good example of sound of the album as a whole or Joy Division as a band.

Kinda like... hmm... kinda like Stone Roses’ “I Wanna be Adored.” No other Stone Roses track really has that same anthemic, post-punk thump. But it’s the best track on “Stone Roses” and “Disorder” is the best track on “Unlnown Pleasures.”

But really not indicative of what Joy Division did. Someone looking for more of that might be disappointed by the album and by “Closer.” But whatever, because it’s all fucking great.

'Disorder' was the one that I took notice of - Spotify had their Behind the Lyrics thing up for it, and I was thinking 'holy shit' as I went through it. It hit me hard.

Disorder used to be my favorite song of theirs when I was about 17. I still love it to bits. There's something to that smooth bass and the playful guitar. It just feels so warm, despite the melancholic lyrical input. For me at least, it's probably that playful warmth that sets it apart from the other songs on that album.

Later on, I'd shift my attention towards New Dawn Fades and its heavy atmosphere. I distinctly remember listening to it on my 18th birthday, being on the bus on my ride home from school. Had a shitty day, that song blasting from the headphones and the wintery grey industrial town passing by right next to me. It was just one of those moments that would reassure me that good music can transcend being just temporary noise that may or may not be enjoyable. This was something else entirely.

But damn, the whole album is such an experience. These days I gravitate towards Insight every now and then. Guess it's the ambivalent atmosphere it conveys. There's a bit of warmth in the melodic sections of the arrangement, but the foreboding FX, the pace and of course Ian's tortured voice imply something more sinister. I really like that.

Oh god, New Dawn Fades is brilliant. Day of the Lords is brilliant. Fucking Shadowplay. Goddamn. Yes, all of it. Yes.

I still consider Disorder my favorite on the albums because given its aforementioned position as the lead track, it takes me back to my first time hearing the album at all... way the fuck back when. High school. And as a result, despite not really being a very representative Joy Division song, it’s still the song that kicks off the whole mental experience in my mind.

(Similarly, “I Wanna be Adored” is my favorite song on Stone Roses s/t)

Also, I first heard Unknown Pleasures while in transit. On a bus to be specific. Through some desolate places, too. And at night. A long, nighttime bus trip home from some weekend trip to a friend’s house in the city. It was almost a bit much, as I was alone and not 100% sure I had picked the bus I was supposed to take.

So, it’s a cemented first-time listen for me too.

Because you talked about it, and I replied, and you talked about it more, I too am now listening to Unknown Pleasures.

I really like what I've heard by them so far, but I still have some catching up to do in terms of their body of work. They were quite prolific. Been listening to the track "A Mutual Friend" quite often. In general they're really up my alley - late 70s to early 80s artsy Post-Punk: I'm in!
