As always- another year, another reliably good Fall record. On a par with Fall Heads Roll. Saw them play the final gig at Hammersmith Palais earlier this year (before it was demolished to make way for flats); great live band,- especially Dave Spurr on bass. A multi-layered record which demands repeat listens before it exposes its quality, fully.Excellent.

Perhaps taking the title of 2005's excellent Fall Heads Roll literally, Mark E Smith made the entirely expected move of firing the entire band - except wife and keyboardist, Elena Poulou - before embarking on their 28th year of recording.

Members of Los Angeles bands Darker My Love and The Hill form the latest iteration of The Fall and the opening track, Over! Over!'s, mantra of "I think it's over now, I think it's ending. I think it's over now, I think it's beginning" could easily be a slogan for the band's revolving door recruitment policy.

Even for Smith, Reformation Post TLC is a uniquely bilious album. A version of Merle Haggard's White Line Fever recalls the kind of mangled country and western that Smith clearly finds so fascinating, while Insult Song - where Smith adopts a redneck accent to spin a silly tale about Captain Beefhart - veers between the inspired and the baffling.

The Wright Stuff allows Smith to offer his take on I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here, while Das Boat's nine minutes of electronic commotion and muttering demonstrate the knotty, cantankerous and perplexing side of Smith's persona.

Duly disorientating and typically slanted, Reformation Post TLC is the equal of anything in The Fall's gargantuan canon.

Admittedly this is not the Fall album to act as an introduction to the canon. For that role I would suggest 'The Wonderful and Frightening World of...'. But nonetheless, for those lucky enough to have been steeped in the music of Mark E Smith, I would say that here, yet again, is the sound of someone who appears to be launching his music career, eager to please and brimming with the quirkiness which is vital to rock music. Others, jaded and grown contemptuous with fame, may grow stale; but Mark E Smith obviously still loves his art. This is quality material, produced by an artist at the height of his mischievous powers.

2007 gives us a new Fall album, the follow-up to the critically well received `Fall Heads Roll' (2005) - this album was initially started last year with long-time associate Grant Showbiz and a completely different line up of the band. I saw the previous line-up play in Stratford, they were on very good form and played `Systematic Abuse' and `White Line Fever.' However, the band amusingly went bonkers in Phoenix, losing a guitarist, bassist and drummer in an incident that may have involved a banana-skin, a corkscrew, a guitar-amp, and some whiskey. The duo of Mark E. Smith and wife Elena Poulou (keyboards) were all that was left - the band expanding with new membership and some brinkmanship from members of Darker My Love and The Hill. The new Fall band featured here including Orpeo M, Tim Presley, Dave Spurr, Peter Greenaway, and Gary Bennett - who may or may not be appearing with MES and Elena in concerts in the next month or so...

Maybe it was the line-up changes, but I can't help wishing the old line up had stuck around a bit longer - mainly as after a few listens `Reformation Post TLC' fails to match either `Fall Heads Roll' or `Country on the Click (the Real New Fall LP).' It feels like one of those so-so Fall albums like `Are You Are Missing Winner?' and `The Light User Syndrome.' The epic `Das Boat' should have been a 21st Century `Bremen Nacht', but ends up a 21st Century `Crew Filth' - alongside the pointless `Outro' and the brief/patchy/undeveloped likes of `Coach and Horses' and `The Usher' (was this once `The Boss'?) it feels like one of those patchy second sides of a Fall album that became common in the mid to late 1990s (e.g. `Cerebral Caustic').

I've been listening to The Fall since 1982 & can confidently say, without a moment's hesitation, that this is my least favourite of their LPs. It's one of those periodic stinkers that the band release every 5 years or so, akin to The Unutterable or Are You Are Missing Winner? (though that's only my opinion, of course - I realise that both of those albums have their fans). RPTLC, however, is considerably worse than either.

A tedious, nay torturous, sequence of barely completed songs, poorly performed & badly recorded - the band sound confused & bored, Smith sounds half asleep - a massive disappointment after the 5-star double whammy of Country On The Click & Fall Heads Roll. RPTLC is the only Fall album wherein I've not been able to find a single decent track. It's so awful, in fact, that I ended up giving my copy away. If you've not heard the band before, pick any LP but this one as your introduction. And if you're a fan, slip this one to the bottom of the pile & forget about it, eh?

This is quality ,dont let anyone tell you different.From the opener"Over!,Over!",untill the outro this delivers the goods,i cannnot wait to see the new Fall lineup live.I saw them last year at the Opera House in Bournemouth it was the BEST gig i have been to for ages.Fall Heads Roll was a great record ,but "Reformation" is better .This is the record MES was born to make, bass driven mosh~pit excellence .I would have liked to see members of the last line~up on this record,but this is The Fall ,ever changing,always brilliant & the new line~up is even better how does he do it? This record will be in my player for the next month at least ,it is a very important & quality product.I am listening to it now through headphones & i can honestly say it is the best album i have heard all year
