Kennedy concludes at the end of this book that we shouldn't try to pin down exactly what it was Joy Division gave us in Unknown Pleasures and yet he spent 174 pointless pages doing just that. Although nothing is gained from this volume I still - after 38 years and counting - love the record. Not even you and your various factual errors can suck the life out a great lp Jake.

Somehow feels rushed and a bit thin. Not enough primary research?
