In retrospect, Closer, the second and final album by this Mancunian band, seems to point straight at singer Ian Curtis's suicide, which happened a few months before it was released. The band's reverberating mesh of minor-key lines and Curtis's bass voice are gloomy enough on their own, and attention to the words reveals references to blacker-than-black stories by JG Ballard and Joseph Conrad; the void and its terrors were splitting Curtis apart from the inside. "I put my trust in you," he sings, and his voice leaves no doubt that that trust has been betrayed. But the music, grim and powerful as it is, points to the direction the surviving members took as New Order, incorporating the mechanical gravity of club rhythms.

Incredible record. Side two (showing my age - from track 6 onwards) sounds more modern and contemporary that most guitar bands today.

Andy........ :D

Meh, it's probably just me, but Queen aside I think the 80's were largely forgettable. Decent price though I suppose.

Although this album was 1980 (which I'm pretty sure comes under the 80's)
