Joy Division - looking back

I've been on a Joy Division kick the past few months, revisiting a band I used to listen to a lot when I was younger. I find that even at this stage of my life, being a lot older, wiser, etc.. I still find the band as compelling as I did then. The haunting themes of Ian Curtis' lyrics still resonate with the passage of time, and show glimpse into the tortured soul that was Curtis.

My personal favorite song is "New Dawn Fades" from the album "Unkown Pleasures". Better yet, pick up the 4 CD set called "Heart and Soul". Here is a bootleg video of the song:
