Factory's four entries in NME's Top 100 British Albums 
There was a strong showing from Factory in the NME's "100 Greatest British Albums Ever!":

23. New Order: Technique
44. Joy Division: Unknown Pleasures
77. Joy Division: Closer
82. Happy Mondays: Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches

For comparison, the June 2000 issue of Q had a 100 Greatest British Albums Ever list with #19 Unknown Pleasures, #31 Pills 'n' Thrills and #97 'Low-life' by New Order. This was followed in the July 2004 issue of Q had a 50 Best British Albums Ever list with Closer at 22 and Pills 'n' Thrills at 24.

In 1993, NME writers placed Closer at 20, Technique at 42, Unknown Pleasures at 43 and at #100, and voted by NME readers, it was Bummed by Happy Mondays.

Thanks to OMNY.
