Classic Songs From A Classic Band!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Still (Audio CD)
Some say "Still" is a bad album, but this simply isn't true! The first half is a collection of rare songs/outtakes which have been given some post production by Martin Hannett - to great results! The second half of the cd is a recording of Joy Division's last ever gig, from May 2nd 1980. The quaility of the content is superb throught the disk, from the magnificent and slightly prophetic "Dead Souls", the errie synth ridden "Something Must Break" to the emotional tidal wave that is the live version of "Decades". Just because "Still" looks like an odds and sodds album don't dismiss it. It's a fantastic showpiece of an album, that perfectly highlights just how good a band Joy Division really were. I Definately Recommend this album to all fans of Joy Division, New Order and alternative music in gerneal.
