new cure album??? cool!
I keep meaning to pick up the B-sides box set they brought out a couple of months back too.
Artwork is here (under the CD section):http://www.musictap.net/Archives/Posts/Posts04/ArchivalPosts2004May1622.html
I've got that box set and I keep meaning to listen to it (I buy a hell of a lot faster than I have time to listen). It's a nice box, with a full color book in the middle. The tracks list itself seems pretty comprehensive.
Joy Division > New order.
I've never actually heard any JD. NO is good, but very hit and miss. When they're ON, they're great, and when they're OFF, it's like "What is this shit?". Their last album (Get Ready) while good (maybe even great), sounded NOTHING like a NO album (and more like an Electronic album).
Also, NO live ranks up there with nine inch nails live, from a vocal standpoint. The music sounds great, but the vocalist (in both cases) sound like they've had one too many drinks, and vocally kinda run all over the place. (They both sound great in the studio, but live is not the best way to hear them.)http://www.ash-official.com/
