Joy Division ended it has the ghost of that band drifting in and out of every song. The production is often criticized for having a mournful sound but it’s those moments I enjoy most. I can ignore the bits I don’t like and be left with the sound of post-punk in a state of flux. The bits I ignore introduce the dance friendly pop that would become the soundtrack to many a pill-heads Saturday night in later years. Bernard Sumner took vocal duties only because no one else wanted to. He did okay this time.
