Joy Division - Heart & Soul BOX SET 4DISC, Substance & A Means to an End: The Music of Joy Division  [DEX]
As I have never really spent any time listening to Joy Division, I asked the woman of my dreams, She Who Must Not Be Named, to say a few words about them.
The files are all hosted on some directory but I took the liberty of downloading them all first so that if you go to download them and find the links no longer work, drop me a message in the comments and I will upload them to the usual places for you.
Now I will shut up.

I have been asked to provide some words so here goes.
Prepare to meet either a wall of gloom or, if you have a nostalgic need to recreate the atmosphere of late 70's and early 80's Manchester, a flood of Factory Records' favourite sons at its best.
Joy Division takes the listener to Manchester; a dark place at the time, full of angry, disillusioned youth seemingly waiting for something to happen to take them away from the misery of post-indusrialism. Desperate for light and hope in the face of such darkness, young people congregated against a backdrop of inner city poverty, of massive unemployment and alienation, to while away their weekends listening to a mass of musical output that surged from the bowels of discontent.
Joy Division gave us bleak, gothic, experimental yet directioned rock in the three years that they produced music - until the lead singer, Ian Curtis, hung himself in 1980. The band then collapsed and reformed as New Order.

Firstly a 4-disc Box Set -Joy Division - Heart & Soul, which must be great for a fan right..then there is an album even I have heard of - Substance which I don't know anything about(!) and then there is some kind of tribute album or something by 'Various Artists' and entitled - A Means to an End: The Music of Joy Division which might be good, might not.
