2.0 out of 5 stars Avoid, 16 Sep 2004
This review is from: Permanent (Audio CD)
The record company most probably believed that with this compilation, they would appeal to the casual record buyer and enticed new fans with a remix of "Love Will Tear Us Apart". It features selections from their two studio albums "Unknown Pleasures" and "Closer" as well as their most famous song, but Joy Division are a band more than most that does not appeal to the casual buyer. They are a band that stand out and command a fanatical fan base that over scrutinize every Ian Curtis lyric to the most extreme point. The compilation isn't as useful as the singles collection "Substance", nor is it as mesmerizing as the band's two original studio albums. This means that is should not appeal either to the dedicated fan and is a misleading introduction for casual fans, even though it contains a wealth of brilliant music. Buy the bands two studio albums and "Substance" as they are the records that the Joy Division legend was born from. Not this half baked attempt to cash in on them. AVOID!!
