Format: Audio CD
This is a great compilation of the Fall's golden period- and one that should be of interest to Pavement & Strokes fans.
It opens with the single 'Lie Dream of a Casino Soul'- a pulsing song with evil drums, jagged riffs, wired organ and Smith's proclamation: "I'm a Mick Jaggered a right now!"...A selection from 1981's brilliant 'Hex Enduction Hour' follows- opening track 'The Classical', 'Fortress' and 'Hip Priest' (as heard in 'Silence of the Lambs'). We also get the 'Look, Know' single- whose opening will be appreciated by fans of Radio One's Mark & Lard. WE then get a ropey live take of 'Who Makes the Nazis?'- the original kazoo-aided version recorded in Iceland is much better! 'Just Step Sideways' is rather lovely, in a jingle-jangle fashion...Not much from the poor 'Room to Live' album- the so-so title track and the dreary 'Hard Life in Country'...Better is the hilarious 'I'm into CB' (up there with 'How I wrote 'Elastic Man'' and 'Industrial Estate')and the tuneful 'Fantastic Life'. I think the Smith-Scanlon-Hanley-Riley band were the best incarnation of the Fall...There's an OK live take of 'Hex's 'Mere Psued Mag Ed', an excellent version of 'Jawbone & the Air Rifle' and a suitably epic 'And this Day'.
This is a good budget price intro to The Fall- though 'In the Palace of Swords Reversed' and 'Early Fall' are just as vital. It contains enough of 'Room to Live' to see why it's not worth bothering with and enough of 'Hex Enduction Hour' to know you'll have to buy that album also! Really, there is no need to buy Hives, Strokes & White Stripes albums when you could get this!!!

The Fall have been spreading the gospel according to Mark E Smith for well over 20 years now, without compromise or any continued dip in quality. Hip Priest and Kamerads, which contains a mix of previously released singles and album tracks, is about as good as it gets. Smith shifts effortlessly from almost pop sounding, but crazed rants such as the opening Lie Dream Of A Casino Soul, to grittier and darker tirades - Mere Pseud Mag Ed and the seminal Hip Priest (used as the background music to great effect by Jonathan Demme in the culminating scenes of The Silence of the Lambs) providing a real sense of tension and foreboding. As with all Mark E Smith efforts, don't rush in and never pass judgement after a first listening. Material like this needs time and effort - it will be worth it.

when the world was punk ,the fall moved on and left field .they shamble here to glorious effect .it takes maybe a week for the tunes to penertrate but once they do you can never go back and your cris de burg collection will simply have to go.
