Fantastic-o!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Just goes to show how commonly debated and ultimately misunderstood the Fall are when one takes a look at the idiot who gave this album a one star review.

"Extricate" is a great recording by the Fall, an angry but also suprisingly sentimental piece of music by the always grumpy Mark E. Smith. This was recorded after Mark's split-up with wife and fellow bandmate, Brix Smith. Considering that she left him for a violinist and that the album opens brilliantly, sarcastically, and defiantly with the intentionally ugly sound of violins screeching away, one must give a nod to Mark. Amidst all that bitterness is a great sense of humor.

If you're a fan like I am, then you can start here for the more recent work. "Levitate" and "The Marshall Suite" are also well-worth buying, as are the newer ones like "Unutterable" and "Country on the Click." It's impossible for me to summarize this record; like all Fall records it's all over the place; but that's what I love about this band and the ideas swimming around in Smith's head--they're never, ever boring; and somehow, each record manages to be distinguishable from the next.

A can't-miss album for Fall fans!

"An excellent album! Featuring great singles like "Telephone Thing" and "Popcorn Double Feature," this diverse album also boasts standout cuts like "I'm Frank" and the title track, and on the uncharacteristic ballad "Bill Is Dead" frontman Mark E. Smith is actually SINGING! One of the band's most commercial efforts, this is a great place to start if you are just getting to know The Fall."
