Anmerkungen:
The second and final album by Joy Division, released July 18, 1980 on Factory, two months following the suicide of lead singer Ian Curtis.
The album was recorded from 18 to 30 March 1980 at Britannia Row Studios, Islington, London.

The cover photo is a detail of the Appiani family tomb in the Staglieno Cemetery in Genova, Italy. The sculpture was made by Demetrio Paernio.

FACT 25 comes in two vinyl editions: Black and dark translucent red. It can only be differentiated when holding against a strong light source. Apparently, this is due to Martin Hannett, who ordered a second master cut after he found out that 5000 records were pressed without the initial master having been approved.

There also are two sleeve variations: A plain carton cover with glossy inner sleeve and having straight corners. Or a thick rough cardboard cover with rough inner sleeve and having rounded corners. However, the two vinyl editions can come in either cover.

145'091 copies were pressed in total until 17 July 1981.

I don’t have another pressing to compare it to but this Italian pressing sounds great. It’s a record with a great variety of reverb and I really like how they (and the snare drum) come across.

Did this variant come with the printed inner sleeve? Mine didn’t but I thought nothing of it until I compared to other versions on here. The submission pictures do not appear to have it either so maybe not. It did annoy me a bit at the time if I remember correctly.

Mine is plain black vinyl as well, but includes the dinosaur and all the other details contained here, although the corners look square to me, not rounded.

If someone would ask me, what style Joy Division represent, I would never say New Wave. Post Punk or even Goth fits much more, doesn't it? So who will dare to correct this thing up there?

Joy Division was as legendary, and in the spirit of the great bands that came out of the 60’s psychedelic movement. The difference being that this band was dead serious about their music, life philosophy and the quality of material that they put out. They have become a mythical band for a couple of reasons ... One, they only put out two actual albums as a group, Unknown Pleasures and Closer, along with a mini disc that came with the paper backed book regarding the history and times of Joy Division. Two, they played so seldom live, and in such a confined area, that their performances have become the stuff of legend. And three, at the time there was no one like them, period. They seem to have arrived developed and fully formed as a new species of music to be recorded with and then disappeared with the death of Ian Curtis. I would venture that there is still Joy Division material out there that has not surfaced as of yet, only time will tell.

To say that their music wasn’t happy would be an under statement. Their music was dark, moving, haunting, full of dispair, longing, self reflective and perhaps overindulgent (but that’s not a negative here, we all need to overindulge sometimes). Even their choice of name, Joy Division, comes from a dark period in European history, where women were used as sex slaves for the pleasure of the Nazi’s in concentration camps. Ian was also epileptic, and the strobbing lights during live performances often causing seizers while on stage, adding to the demented spectacle unfolding in theaters. All of this created more sensation then one could hope for, and with their release and charting of "Love Will Tear Us Apart," the band was bound for glory. But glory ment coming to the United States and shaking our shoals, Ian killed himself right before that was to happen. Nevertheless, this band has deeply etched their place on the musical landscape of this planet, and in the lives of so many listeners across the world.

Their music is heavily laden with atmospheric conditioning by synthesizers, bass lines in time with heart beats, guitars that moved left, right and back to center, all with the low lovely voice of Ian holding his own in the mist of all these emotional spirals. His vocals were never mixed front and center, they were always a part of the production, his lyrics and vocals being used as any other instrument might be. One had to really listen to understand what was being said, to the point that most often the listener just drifted off into their own world as the music and lyrics entered our brains on a subconscious level.

This wasn't late in the night music only, this was solitary morning music, sunny afternoon music, keep you awake during the small hours of the night music. This music was so dark and warm, so perfect all of the time, one could not help but be drawn in. But it wasn’t a place to stay, for if you stayed there too long there would be serious repercussions. Joy Division took you so deeply into regions of yourself, those places you wanted to see, places that you wanted to show to the world, but doubt, fear and the power of these places compels you to keep them hidden, even as Joy Division slides under fingernails and shows you the face in the mirror.

‘LOVE WILL certainly TEAR US APART’ ...

The ultim work of Ian Curtis is the beginning of the so called "New Wave" that New Order will explore later.
After an excellent album like "Unknown Pleasures" (1979) which was already innovative for this period, Closer is probably the most brillant innovation of Joy Division since their beginnings.
Even if the second part of the album (Heart & Soul to Decades) will always remain my favorite, listen to every song carefully, understand the powerful lyrics of a desesparate man, be the one who can't stop to listen to Joy Division !
