“Joy Division passes beyond simple entertainment to re-transcribe musically the worlds of half-light and the intensity of ecstasy. Sometimes disillusioned or nostalgic accents intrude, for the experience is multiform and it’s complexity cannot be translated into a sole concept. A music at the intersection of luminous and dark worlds, between silence and the cry, a bridge between the past and present mystical symbolism.”

Excerpt from Licht Und Blindheit by Jean-Pierre Turmel.

Booklet layout and design by Peter Saville and Jon Wozencroft.
