Shadowplay is my favorite Joy Division song. It’s stuck with me from the first time I heard it. I can still remember the exact time and place. Amazing song.
Early AOTY candidate.
From Murder Was The Case to a song with this ‘artist’. Disheartening
Alot to digest on your first listen. I have to take breaks every couple of songs. I swear thats sounds like a sample of the Nine Inch Nails songs used in the opening credits to the film Seven on track 2 Full of Fire.
For me, Girls/Christopher Owens peak was BDC EP. It really showed that the band and their sound were taking a giant step forward. Their next LP, FSHG, was good not great. It sounded like a bunch of decent songs lopped together to make a complete record. It showed no cohesiveness. The lush and brillant 6 song EP had my hopes sky high. Don’t get me wrong, FSHG was a good record, but it didn’t hold up next to Album or BDC EP. I’ve had Lysandre for 2 weeks now and I can’t decide whether I love or hate it. The above review hit some familiar points for me. Wonderful moments are too few and far between. However, I am and always will be a fan of his music. The story of this particular girl and Girls first tour was obviously something he needed to get off his chest and I’m okay with that. I’m just a fan.
