More Info

Closer is the second and final studio album by English rock band Joy Division, released on 18 July 1980 by Factory Records. Produced by Martin Hannett, it was released two months after the suicide of the band's lead singer and lyricist Ian Curtis.

The album reached No. 6 on the UK Albums Chart and peaked at No. 3 in New Zealand in September 1981. Closer was also named NME Album of the Year. It was remastered and re-released in 2007. Today, Closer is widely recognised as a seminal release of the post-punk era.

Excellent Sounding Pressing With A Commonly Reported Problem

This version sounds amazing and the packaging is excellent but I did experience some issues with the first track on side two which have been reported elsewhere with this pressing. Fortunately the "pops" on the intro to Heart and Soul, which sound like oddly placed snare drum beats do disappear after giving the record a decent clean. Definitely worth buying but maybe not as a gift.
