  1. Started Following JD in 1980 have all original LPs 12"s and loads of bootlegs from back in the day. After Ians Death I started following New Order seen them Live Loads of times Around The Uk. Now Peter Hook and the Light the only real way to see both bands work Live. Great music as always

  2. fuck…. even after being a joy division fan for years and years, that guitar solo near the end of the song still always plasters a wide grin onto my face. even thinking about the solo while typing this comment is making me smile. one of my favorite guitar solos IN HISTORY!

  3. Passover by Joy Division from their 2nd studio album, Closer… that, my friend, is thee song for me. by the way… what do you think about New Order and how different JD's music is compared to NO?

  4. Top favorite song from them. Ian Curtis had epilepsy and suffered from Anxiety and seizures on stage. Lyrically, the song is awesome. You just have to listen to their Unknown Pleasures album front to back.

  5. Punk deconstructed in 4 minutes by Martin Hannett, sent straight off hurtling into deep space. No wasted notes. Awesome power.

  6. It funny because I heard this song for the first time today. I heard bit and pieces about this song Shadowplay in the end of it earlier today. I had to play this song to see if I would like the entire song and it grab a hold of me. The solo on the guitar was the signature point of the whole song. Ian doesn't have a talented vocalist in my opinion, but the song blended well with his voice. It a shame Ian Curtis passed away from suicide, who know how big this band could have been if Ian didn't passed on.

  7. Love Joy Division and Shadowplay is one of their best. It's worth checking out all their stuff including compilation albums Still and Substance. Here's five of their less obvious ones that I like:
    Exercise One
    Something Must Break
    Leaders of Men
