5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another Fall classic 4 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is premium Fall, it sounds really fresh and revitalised after the troubled times of a few years back. Smith sounds fired up, the band are tight, the whole thing sounds like they are having fun again. For a band who've made more classic albums than most bands have songs, it's great to have such a brilliant new album. Heavy, rolling, locked-groove bass-lines, catchy tunes (well I think so), Smith is almost even singing at some points. Ride Away has choppy guitar and almost an oompah feel, but of course sounds like The Fall. Blindness lurches with menace, a bit like Big New Prinz. I can Hear The Grass grow would be in the charts, if I was in charge; it's a bit like Infotainment Scan period stuff. There's hints of Free range in all this too, and Dr Buck's Letter.
Job's a good'un!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Fall Album 17 April 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've followed The Fall for ages and this is one of their strongest albums. The opening track is unusual - they usually provide a very powerful and driving opening track so I guess this is something to stop them getting too predictable. The album as a whole is very good, every track is excellent and it is something you can listen to over and over again.

I find it difficult to decide if they have created a new Fall sound - as Smith has done in the past for example with Levitate - or if they have returned to the sound of a previous era. My conclusion is that this album takes all that was good about The Fall in the past and has bottled it, as if there was some essence of Fall that Smith just keeps making more and more pure.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "Living Leg End" at his best 5 Mar 2007
By K_Deel
Format:Audio CD
Most groups' best albums usually come early on in their careers. However, The Fall's are dotted about within their bulging corpus of work. But then The Fall have never been like most groups. There are four or five tracks on this album that compare well with anything Mark E Smith has written in the past 'Blindness', 'Pacifying Joint' and 'What About Us' in particular. The (now departed) band are excellent with thunderous rhythms to the fore and riffs driven into the ground like fence posts. If you haven't picked up a Fall album for years, I'd recommend this as a good place to get back on board!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to form with vengeance 9 Oct 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Fall return to their riff dominated repetitious best with this latest release. Dominated by driving garage rock with more than a nod towards the Stooges this album however has a couple of more reflective pastoral pieces with the elegiac "Midnight Aspen" offering an sideways nod to Hunter S Thompson. The driving "Youwanner" is a synthesis of all that is great about this latest incarnation of the band. Smiths acerbic wit is written large across the album with no ex band member or stone left unturned. A marvellous album repeating the return to form begun with "The Real New Fall LP".

5.0 out of 5 stars Fall classic album 2005 alert.... 23 Mar 2006
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While I'm of the persuasion that every Fall album is decent - 'Room to Live', 'Cerebral Caustic' & 'Are You Are Missing Winner?' have several moments - there are certain titles that stand out and join the classic Fall album set: 'Live at the Witch Trials', 'Grotesque (after the gramme)', 'Hex Enduction Hour', 'This Nation's Saving Grace', 'Bend Sinister', 'Extricate','Shiftwork', 'The Infotainment Scan', 'The Marshall Suite' & 'The Unutterable.' The obligatory line-up changes have occurred since the last classic double whammy of 'Marshall' & 'Unutterable' - as the last two Peel Sessions show, the most recent line up(s) have found a new Fall on rare form. Anyone who has seen them live recently - I had the pleasure in Stratford Upon Avon last week - will know this is another great version of The Fall. 2003's 'The Real New Fall LP - Formerly 'Country on the Click' was the first classic move, an album almost as good as this and one to add to the Fall classics list. The line-up almost survives here - Ben Pritchard (guitar/backing vocals), Eleni Poulou (synthesiser/vocals) and the ever present Mark E. Smith traded in David Milner abd Jim Watts for Spencer Birtwistle & Steve Trafford. Amazingly the progress from 2003 onwards has continued and 'Fall Heads Roll' shows the new Fall are as great as the old Fall. As much as I love the reissues of the albums I love, 'Fall Heads Roll' shows the contemporary version is the most important. I can't think of a Fall album I'd like to listen to more NOW...
These songs have been around a few years - live, the final Peel Session from 2004 and on the 'Interim' mini-LP - the latter perhaps working in a similar manner to something short and sweet like 'Slates.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fall's gold 9 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
Thirty years have passed since The Fall released their seminal debut, Live At The Witch Trials. While the band appeared to be in decline, 2003’s Real New Fall LP was hoped by many to indicate that the fire and passion that saw them knock out classics like Dragnet, Grotesque and Perverted By Language with almost casual regularity has returned.
Opener Ride Away is as jaunty a tune as they’ve released since their version of The Kinks’ Victoria. The electronic swirls bop along to a ragged reggae skank and a one-two beat with Mark E Smith’s cheeky, intermittent, “hey hey” is a perfect introduction to what is the most frequently brilliant Fall album since This Nation’s Saving Grace.
Pacifying Joint has Eleni Smith’s synthesiser zipping over the kind of dirge guitars that only The Fall do this well. That Smith’s lyrics are delivered in the perfect drawl is but icing on the cake. Blindness, having appeared on both Interim and the Peel Sessions Box Set, will be the track most anticipated by Fall fans. Harking back to their long-standing rule that ‘longer is better’ and sounding meaner than ever, Smith’s band demonstrate the magic that can make seven minutes of the same riff feel like a far too short length of time. Later, Smith deconstructs The Move’s I Can Hear The Grass Grow by literally tearing apart the original’s multi-layered arrangements and turning it into a raucous singalong.
Only the Mark E Smith-less Trust In Me (which, annoyingly, closes out the set) sounds out of place on an album which not only proves that The Fall can live up to their legend but, in fact, are more than able to surpass it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A typical Fall album
A typical Fall album. They may grate at times but they never let you down. The first Full album after the death of John Peel.

'Heads Roll' represents the Fall going through the motions. Lyrically, its lazy and musically in the main, sounds turgid and contrived. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good - but a bit too familiar
Overall this is a very enjoyable Fall lp but, to me, it's a bit backward-looking. It's like a catalogue of what The Fall have been up to now. Read more
