As I mentioned on day 11, Joy Division’s Closer is my favourite LP — or album, if you must — and has been ever since I first heard it 30 years ago.
It remains on top of my all-time favourite records of all-time despite coming under heavy pressure of late from Cinerama’s Torino. I am an obsessive rater of songs in iTunes and these are the only two LPs in my collection in which every track gets five stars. So in the interest of balance and because I love them both so much, here’s a track from each.
