CD Reviews

High Lo-Fi
Billy Smorgasbord | Antarctica | 03/21/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Fall upset a few listeners when they released Dragnet; some of those who liked Live at the Witch Trials didn't cotton to the 'muddy' recording quality and 'crude' playing they found on this, their next album. The whole thing seemed to point to that which the late Claude Bessy called "the overall uncomfortableness of everything".

"This is the kind of music I would buy," replied Mark E. Smith to complainants. It's the kind of music you should buy, too. Psykick Dancehall, A Figure Walks, Printhead, Muzorewi's Daughter, Choc-Stock, Put Away are all wonderful songs.

So, listen up kiddies: there's nothing else like this album of music in the whole wide world and you ought to have it and cherish it and listen to it lots. As Mark himself says: "Let's get this thing together... and make it bad.""
The way it should be played...

"I waited thirteen years to get this record. No trace of disappointment. The perfect successor to 'Live at the Witch Trials', and a fine predecessor to 'Grotesque'. Mark E. Smith's lyrics are at their paranoid best recounting strange tales of depravity, such as 'Flat of Angles'. Eminently suitable for odd moods, or most other times."
CLASSIC POST PUNK

"This is one of the best Fall albums ever. It is haunting with its droning bass lines and scattered guitar work. Mark E. Smith has his strange lyrics that you have to listen to five times to understand. This is like the Sex Pistols had they released a second or third studio album. Muzorewi's Daughter is the best song on the album, with it's middle-eastern/punk theme, and Psycick Dancehall pokes fun at disco with a fake disco guitar work."
