JOY DIVISION / Closer (1990)

The second and last Joy Division studio album carries on the monumental post-punk sound of their previous one.  It once more invites you into a world of cold beauty laid bare, and doesn't let go until the very end.  The music is a metronome of human emotion, filtered through the minds of four individuals that together achieved what they never could individually.
