Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 309/500!
Limited edition 40th anniversary version of the band's second and final studio album, pressed on 180g crystal clear vinyl.
Originally released in July 1980 on Factory Records, the album reached number 6 in the UK Charts. In the same year, the album was voted number 1 in NME's 1980 Albums of the Year poll.
Closer was recorded in March 1980 at Britannia Row Studios in Islington, London. It was produced by the highly praised Martin Hannett whose distinctive production style utilised unorthodox sound recording and technology.
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.
Joy Division's start-to-finish masterpiece, a flawless encapsulation of everything the group sought to achieve.
