9 thoughts on “ Something Must Break - Joy Division - Still (CD, Album)

  1. Joy Division and Pere Ubu are an example of this but where Ubu came over as pissed off there is a beautiful melancholy to Joy Division which is made times more poignant by the loss of Ian Curtis. Urgent drumming, lead bass guitar with Hooky's trademark roar and Barney's guitar adding texture and simple melodic leads make up the sound but /5(61).

  4. Dec 18,  · It states under re-releases that still was released on cd/uk in by nimbus (same as closer) but really released in ,birdpburulapincrabernibitabasci.xyzinfo anyone have a clue if they had an eye for detail for the inlay,like the other releases,that copied the materials of the og vinyl editions?meaning did they use embossed cardboard?/5(62).
  5. One of the lesser songs in the Joy Division body of work - but one with more influence than might be thought, as the cover version years later by Jawbox showed - "Something Must Break" makes for one of the most compressed, claustrophobic recordings from the group.
  6. Something Must Break This song is by Joy Division and appears on the compilation album Still () and on the Transmission session tracks of the compilation album Heart and Soul (). Two ways to choose, on a razor's edge Remain behind, go straight ahead Room full of people, room just for one I can't break out now, the time just won't come Two ways to choose, which way to go.
  7. Although many of the tracks can be found on other albums, the style (and often live) nature of what is on this album still make it a worthwhile addition to a Joy Division collection. Dead Souls almost feels like a suicide note by Curtis himself, a brilliant dark and depressing masterpiece, as others point out it /5(92).
  8. The anthemic "Something Must Break" is one of the best, while the nervous "Ice Age" is an agreeable enough thrash and "The Only Mistake" a melodramatic but still effective effort. Other numbers like "The Sound of Music" and the heavily compressed pound of "Walked in Line" sound more like sketches on the way to becoming truly great songs.
  9. Being the record by which I discovered Joy Division (and possibly because of that fact) it is still my favourite. I didn't know it at the time, but it's a fairly random collection of studio out-takes from the band's three-year history (the original first vinyl disc) and a live recording of the band's final concert at Birmingham University in May (the original second vinyl disc)/5(15).
