Customer Review

on 19 February 2006
This is astoundingly beautiful album. Without knowing anything about Ian Curtis, it gives an insight into his mind before his suicide. The subject matter is bleak but more meaningful than any processed sanitized pop records. It begins with atrocity Exhibition and a drum roll which mimics a machine gun firing. Ian Curtis recoiling at the horror of war. The music is often slow and melodic, however this fits the themes and mood of the lyrics perfectly. Ian Curtis voice acutely articulates his despair and although maybe not conventionally brilliant singer it’s perfect for the atmosphere of the album. Any illusions to higher human goals and aspirations are striped away as he mockingly sings ‘God in his wisdom took you by the hand, God in his wisdom made you understand’. The big questions are asked ‘existence what does it matter?’ without seeming overblown or pretentious. Most people have only heard of ‘Love will tear us apart’, but this is truly their masterpiece and shouldn’t be ignored.
