Couldn't put this down. Made me cry. Read it! Especially if you are middle-aged with partner, ex and teenagers around you.

Love this book. Saw Hogarth's prints at Temple Newsam House in Leeds, then read this book. Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practically essential, 28 May 2012
This review is from: Louder Than Bombs (Audio CD)
This complication came out in 1987 as a US release of all singles and most B sides released there, with the This Charming Man and How Soon is Now singles being included on the US editions of the debut album and Meat is Murder. All new editions of these two albums in the UK include these tracks too so with this album after buying the four studio albums you are collecting the rest of the bands singles. It is of course a stunning collection, with the highlights being: Panic, William, Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now, Ask and Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want
Only down side is the inclusion of Hand in Glove, why put this on as it is on the debut?!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums ever, 4 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Unknown Pleasures (Audio CD)
If you are new to this album you are probably intersted based on its legacy. Since its release in '79 it has grown in stature and grown a reputation as one of the best albums of all time. This is because simply, it is. Joy Division were a band who formed in Manchester in around '77 from average backgrounds, as demonstrated in the film "Control". They were original and groundbreaking in their live shows and even more in this, their debut album. It touches human emotions that had never been seen before and havent truly been seen since. Both the bass heavy electronic feel of the songs and Ian curtis' lyrics portray fellings of loneliness, depression and frantic isolation that much of the "Goth" genre that it inspired missed. The album has depth that seemed to have come out of nowhere, so is essentially a grower. It starts with my personal favorite Joy Division song "Disorder". This is a blinder of a track and one of the greatest album openers of all time. It skillfuly captures the albums sound with a tight electronic drum beat, catchy bass riff and Ians haunting vocals. This is infact avery accesible and energic song. Followed by the doom-laden "Day of the lords" (weakest track in my opinion), then "Candidate", one of Joy Disions bleakest songs, a fantastic song non the less. Then comes the brilliant "Insight" despite the slightly dated computer effects chorus. "New Dawn Fades" follows and it rightly believed to be the the best song on the album. It is very dark and contains the lyric "A loaded gun wont set you free,so they say". The second side begins with the classic "Shes lost Control", and the rocky "Shadowplay", adding a new dimension to albums sound. "Wilderness" and "Interzone" are two fantasticly frantic rockers, strickingly different from the final track "I Remember Nothing". It is 6mins long and does not change in pace or volume much, but it shockingly re-listnable, a good example of the albums power.
This is my favorite over 1980s "Closer" (also brilliant), because it follows more of a theme, and is much harder to get into, especially "Candidate". 4-5 concentrated listens should do it though, the best time at midnight in your celler.
10/10, Classic

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, 27 Jan. 2011
This is my favorite Bowie album. I believe it tops Ziggy Stardust based on consistency, This is how I rate it:
Wach That Man 5/5
Alladin Sane 4/5
Drive In Saturday 5/5
Panic in Detroit 5/5
Cracked Actor 5/5
Time 4/5
The Prettiest Star 3/5
Lets Spend the Night Together 3/5 (Stones Original is Better)
The Jean Genie 5/5
Lady Grinnig Soul 3/5

This album is not in Qs "Best Albums of the 70s" list whereas Ziggy, Hunky Dory and Low are. Martin Strong gives it a deserved 10/10 rating though, and i agree

This review is from: The Queen Is Dead (Audio CD)
This is without a dobt one of the best albums ever. People who hate this just dont understand it, so can they stop giving it 1 star because their bringing its average rating down. This is an almost perfect album, but as we all no, "Never had no one ever" isnt very memorable.
