Can't listen to this makes me want to commit suicide. Heavy dark depressing self indulgent angsty LP. I will avoid in future no wonder poor IC committed sluicide.

Someone knows where the original Bernard Pierre Wolff photo is located now? Maybe an exposition or a museum or I don't know.

the moderator of joy-division-central has found out that the colour of translucency depends on which sort of lightbulb is used.please check here for yourself (scroll to the bottom):

The advance promo pics of this implied there would be a clear (presumably plastic of some sort) insert included, when it is just white embossed card. It still looks very cool though.

Happy 40th birthday to FACT XXV - still (no pun intended) the best Joy Division album!

It arrived today and I played it. Perfect. High and Lo ends are precise and there is nothing on the record except a perfect album. As was already posted, they didn't put the record or sleeve into the inner printed cardboard sleeve. So they looked after collectors by doing so. The vinyl on the turntable is mesmerising. They did everything right. For 26 sterling, this album brought me back to my youth when I first bought it on Vinyl. Worth every penny. I have the original somewhere in the house, but can't find it to compare the sound

How is this getting determined from the normal red translucency ?
