I always liked the songs here and there I heard from them. So about two weeks ago I saw there box set Heart and Soul for 40 bucks and bought it. Damn....I had been missing out. It has both their albums and just about every song they ever did and some live and remix songs.

The box set has been just about the only thing I have been listening to since I picked it up. I really dig Ian Curtis's lyrics and voice and the band is really good.

It is to bad he killed himself back in 1980...

I never knew that the rest of Joy Division started New Order. It is kind of hard to believe because Joy Division is so dark,deep and makes you think and New Order is more or less elctronic pop. I never really cared for New Order much.

I can say out of the 80 songs and 5 hours of music on the box set that there is not a single song that I dont think is at the very least good. Most of the songs are downright amazing IMO.

But yeah anyways I am buzzed and bumping the box set so I thought I would see if there are any other Joy Divisions fans on here...because I am certainly a fan now.

One of my favorite bands. They've been acused of being nazis since their names are nazi related.

We fought for good,
stood side by side
Our friendship never died,
stranger ways, the lows and highs
Our vision touched the sky
Mortal this, we parted too soon
I put my trust in you.

Yeah I heard about the Nazi thing but I don't really buy into it.

They were orignally Warsaw...but changed because there was a punk group called Warsaw Kamp or something like that.

The more I listen to this album the more it amazes me.

Dead Souls as of right now is prob. my favorite...

go get the dvd of '24 Hour Party People' its a funny take on the history of Tony Wilson and Factory Records, chronicles Joy Division, Ian Curtis death, New Order, Happy Mondays and all the shit that came out of Manchester UK in the 80's and 90's

I'll have to listen to that set. How is the name nazi related? First time I heard that.

Joy Division is what the Nazi's called the Jewish women that would give them sexual favors. I don't know why you would want to name your band after that LMFAO....but a great band they were.

TWENTY FOUR HOURS IS MY CURRENT FAV. BUT IT CHANGES FROM TIME TO TIME.

Twenty Four Hours is a fucking amazing song.

The part when Ian sings...

All the darkest corners of a sense I didn't know/ Just for one moment, I heard somebody call/ Looked beyond the day in hand, there's nothing there at all.

makes me think that he was hoping for a bright light in his sorrow but that he couldn't find it. No matter how down feeling Curtis's lyrics are you always hear parts where he has some hope.....to bad he couldn't find it before he ended his own life.

The songs I like constantly change....right now it is prob. Isolation...that song is crazy.

Yeah I heard about that movie about Ian Curtis's life. I am pretty sure they have already started the filming for it. I hope they get someone good to play Ian. The guy in 24hr Party People was alright but I think they could have got someone better.

510SIKNESS - Do you like New Order? I didn't know that the rest of Joy Division became NO until I got that box set. I really don't like NO that much. Blue Monday is a really good song. It has been awhile since I really heard their stuff and my taste in music has changed abit. Is there any other songs you would recommend that I check out from them?

Thanks in advance....

Love Will Tear Us Apart is a great song. That is what is inscribed on Ian Curtis's tombstone. Anyone who likes their music, even if you have both their albums, should pick up the box set Heart and Soul. It has damn near every song they ever recorded. I would recommend it even at full price.

Hell yeah. But i need to get into them more, I havent had the chance to check out most of their stuff besides the popular work. I like New Order... I first checked them out after Orgy did their version of "Blue Monday", that song rocks. I like a lot of the early electronic-movement groups and DJ's, especially coming out of "Madchester" in the early 90's.
Ill have to start getting some full J.D. albums.

Ill have to start getting some full J.D. albums.

Joy Division only had two actual albums...Unknown Pleasures and Closer. Which are both amazing albums. They released alot of singles that weren't on either album. They had a ton of singles, b-sides, and other material though.

This is why I say anyone feeling their music should go out and buy Heart and Soul. It is 81 songs long and clocks in at over 5 hours. It has both albums in full and all the singles. It also has rare songs and live versions of songs.

Pick it up.....you won't be dissapointed.

Joy Division and New Order sound nothing alike. I have tried but I really can't get into New Order (there are a few songs of theirs that I do like though.)

I love Joy Division. I have been a fan of thier music for about 11 years now. My first JD album was Closer...I promptly went out and got everythign I could by them. I was disappointed this year when i missed New Order out on tour as I hear they played a few JD songs...
