180g Vinyl Pressed at Record Industry from 2007 Master!

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 157/500!


Closer is the second and final studio album by the English rock band Joy Division. It was released on July 18, 1980 through record label Factory, following the death of lead singer Ian Curtis two months earlier. Closer has been painstakingly replicated as per the original release whilst also improving and enhancing on the quality of print. The album is pressed on 180g heavyweight, black vinyl using the 2007 remasters.

The news of singer Ian Curtis's suicide still hung in the air when this album was released. Given the deep introspective nature of Joy Division's music, his death invested Closer with an even greater pessimism. Yet there is a fragile beauty in its content and if Curtis's voice seems more distant, it complements the sparse textures created by mesmerizing synthesizer lines and occasional, highly effective, piano. Slow, hypnotic tempos increase the sense of brooding mystery and if the few faster songs provide musical relief, their lyrics prove equally tortured. Eerie, yet compulsive, Closer confirmed Joy Division's pre-eminent place in rock's pantheon.

"Joy Division were at the height of their powers on Closer, equaling and arguably bettering the astonishing Unknown Pleasures, that's how accomplished the four members were. Rock, however defined, rarely seems and sounds so important, so vital, and so impossible to resist or ignore as here." -Ned Raggett, allmusic.com
