Purchased this album and others, not all tracks downloaded, only one song transmission downloaded on this album, no its not in a queue somewhere with jesus and his bro,s, according to album i have purchased it and wont let me do anything else, anyone ony idea,s,thanks in advance.
Much agreed with the unanimous majority here, this album is beyond phenomenal in regards to musical content. This album literally represents the surface of a catalogue of amazing work both lyrically and in instrumental aspects of the band. It's a shame that iTunes haven't involved the Peel sessions which are every bit as good as the edited versions on cd. Don't let that put you off to not give Joy Division a listen would be an absolute travesty on your part!
it’s the quality what counts
By lemuel q stoopnagle
ok “on;y” 14 songs, but 14 timeless classics. yeah they could have put more on but they didn’t. rate the MUSIC; atmosphere, transmission, love will tear us apart, digital and dead souls all in one set for 8 quid, what more do you want? if you’re not gonna buy all the albums this is all you need.

This, this is simply amazing! Its truly beautiful music and you know that every word sung by ian curtis is meant. Oh why cant we have proper music like this now. Triumph!!!!!!
Joy Division simply the best
By Tony Tighe
This album is very mediocre for a best of in fact it is a rip off,the songs are decent enough but to get the full spectrum and transitional journey it would be better to purchase Unknown Pleasures,forget Closer and Still..then Movement 1st New Order album,forget Power Corruption and Lies,Substance simply the best altogether album and if not really a fan of either JD or NO then you get a brilliant album on this alone it's like a best of, then of course to wrap it up Technique this the late '80s album that had a more Indie / rave feel of the time.After this they went downhill although Republic is not too bad just not as good as their previous stuff. Don't waste your money on this best of you might as well by the CD that way you could still put on iTunes and on to your iPod.
Joy Division are the best but this is not
If you want to do it right, buy The Peel Sessions first, then Unknown Pleasures, then Closer, then Still, then Substance.These have all the joy division tracks that ever existed, and you need them all otherwise you will miss gems that are not on this selection
During the time Joy Division were at the height of musical prowess I was into totally other styles of music and paid no heed to these seemingly monotonous drones that the alternative 'Goth' types listened to. Since then I have grown up and after seeing 'Control' I am ashamed of my ignorant past and have attempted to redeem myself by buying this album. Some may call me plastic for my late interest in this great music but I don't really care; this is a fantastic compilation and I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to it, I may be missing out on other top tunes that joy Division wrote so I am going to search for more. Four stars, The Sound and the Fury!!!!!!
Shame on you iTunes. Joy Division are an amazing band, but this best of is a complete scam.
