CD Reviews

FANTASTIC FALL!
Mr N Forbes-warren | Newport, South Wales, UK | 05/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This LP was one of my favourites when I was 17 and a college student. Nowadays, I have to say that THE FALL still hold their appeal to me and always will! This excellent and essential(to any Fall fan young or old) compendium features their first four single releases and their b-sides. Also you get LAST ORDERS and STEPPING OUT which featured on a rare ten-inch live compilation called SHORT CIRCUIT LINE AT THE ELECTRIC CIRCUS(this also featured The Drones, Joy Division and John Cooper Clarke amongst others, as well as yours truly). Two little-heard, bouncy, catchy punky numbers with Mark E. Smith's unmistakable vocals, where every stanza seems to be punctuated with -ah! The opening track, REPETITION is a spoof of the chart music of 1978, including punk acts in particular!('You don't dig repetition-ah!'), illustrating it sounded the same!(in retrospect, it's better than the rap rubbish that's about today in my opinion) BINGO MASTER'S BREAKOUT is a mentally amusing tale of a seaside bingo caller who loses it, a song Mark E. Smith wrote while on holiday with his parents in Scarborough, apparently! PSYCHO MAFIA is one to play loud, VARIOUS TIMES is an HG Wells time machine-style tale with a grim vision of the future(yes, he was right, the beer does taste weak in the UK!). IT'S THE NEW THING is a parody of fellow Manchester rivals The Buzzcocks and their commercialised fashion fad-conscious hits. And there's a whole lot more besides...ENJOY! The Fall will continue to rock in their own weird way!"
Tremendous But Available Elsewhere
Scott McFarland | Manassas, VA United States | 05/27/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The music here is stupendous. But it's all available now on the 2004 "expanded reissues" of "Live at the Witch Trials" and "Dragnet", in superior fidelity."
Lunatics with keyboards and guitars
Matthew Brewer | somehwere in time | 04/28/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A Terrific album containing some of Mark E Smiths best songs. Best to get it know before it goes out of print again. Brilliant, unheard music indeed."
