I tend to point people past the single "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and steer them towards "Atmosphere" for closure on this sound and band.....that song is every bit as haunting and heart-wrenching as anything on Closer IMO.
I havent listened to JD since the mid 80s. Is there really some important music in those old albums? Im just asking because I was always drunk and in a toga when they were playing that stuff.
I had a friend who was so into those guys, but I never really got a chance to digest them.
Worth a trip to Best Buy??(not sarcasm)!
