Top Ten Best Post Punk Albums

The Top Ten

1 Unknown Pleasures - Joy Division Unknown Pleasures - Joy Division Product Image

Should be number one

Personally, I prefer this one to 'Closer'.

2 Closer - Joy Division Closer - Joy Division Product Image

More, more votes for this, please! This album is the perfect example of how talent becomes genius and how genius becomes art when the creator experiences the uttermost pain and suffering in his own self. It's Arthur Rimbaud made music, for the unknown pleasures of us all.

This album totally deserves the top spot. If you listen to it, you might be depressed for the next few days, but your vision of how beautifully emotions can be conveyed will be changed forever. A gorgeous, powerful, exciting and raw masterpiece.

Absolutely perfect from the beginning to the end. One of the few albums from which you can not throw a single note. Joy Division at their highest point.

Their cover of Stones's 'Satisfaction' is still one of the cleverest cover-versions of all time and there's not one bad track on the album. And Eno's production has stood the test of time too.
