"I need a guide to come and take me by the hand," Ian Curtis tells us in that flat, monotonous voice for the opening song, "Disorder". In every single way it sets the scene for what is to come from this album, which is regularly seen as one of the best of all time. The short, almost chirpy bursts of guitar riffs, the robotic, metallic like drumming, that harrassing bass and Curtis' truly frightening voice all make this opening song what it is, thrilling. However, you really feel the expectations of greater things to come, and that is absolutely correct. "Days Of The Lords" is stunning, with some monumentally good lyrics, "This is the room/The start of it all/No portrait so fine/Only Sheets on the wall", and guitar riffs that other bands would have killed to call their own. "Candidate" is a quiet (but highly bleak) song, featuring that now highly poignant lyric "It's creeping up slowly, that last fatal hour". "Insight" continues in the same way, with all sorts of clanging and dripping noises starting the track off, as if Curtis is making a journey through some sort of dirty jail. Indeed, a final slam of a door signals his arrival, as the music kicks in straight afterwards. "Wilderness", "New Dawn Fades" and "Interzone" are all incredibly strong tracks, but it is "Shadowplay" and "She's Lost Control" that really make this album what it is: A classic. "She's Lost Control" is hypnotic and gritty (the subject matter isn't on berserk girlfriends, but Curtis' worsening epilepsy), and at the finale features the most mesmerising guitar riffs I've ever heard. All in all, an album that will forever be seen as a bleak, but defining moment in music history. Joy Division and Ian Curtis may be dead, but these songs will always make them last forever.
