The mood and sound of this CD is darker and less spikey than say this 'Nation's Saving Grace' but that is not necessarily a bad thing.This sounds at times like the Fall's studenty album as epitomised by the stomping chant 'Victoria'.However,the darker lyrical content is never quite far away as epitomised on the standout track 'Carry Bag Man' which is about the romance of the lone terrorist bomber.A theme MES revisits in the later classic 'Powderkeg'.Other memorable tracks are 'Athlete Cured' and the 9 minute dance epic 'Bremen Nacht'.Frenz Experiment is probably not the best intro to this great band for the curious purchaser but it neatly ties up the 83-88 era. MES also dominates the writing both lyrically (of course) and musically in this record to an extent not seen in the bands other records during this period.

This was my first Fall CD. I understand it is probably not a firm favourite amongst hardened Fall fans, probably not typical of their "sound", and some of the tracks are a bit average sounding. But there are some absolute stormers on here too that demonstrate what a ground breaking band the Fall was: Guest Informant, Hit The North, Frenz... no one who professes to really love music should go through life without knowing this CD.

Every Fall disc has a place, and this is The Fall as to be listened to in the afternoon, maybe whilst reading the paper (not necessarily a bad thing - who would want Hex Enducation 24 hours a day?). The Frenz Experiment is far removed from the 'epic' Beggar's Banquet albums: Bend Sinister and This Nation's Saving Grace. This farily laid-back hour contains some of The Fall's best 'pop' tunes: Frenz, Victoria, In These Times, Tuff Life Boogie and Hit the North. For those tracks, it's an album worth getting regardless. The remainder is made up of what annoys most people about The Fall: repetitive tunelessness and incoherent rambling. However, some of this is actually really good: (Athlete Cured, Get A Hotel, The Steak Place), but the 9-minuite 'Bremen Nacht' is unberable and I'm a massive Fall fan. The only dancing I could do to it would leave me unable to walk thereafter. Some of the tracks have no particular impact, and are 'filler' as far as I'm concerned - I don't care at all, because this is no rollercoaster-ride of an album. Maybe the tracks Guest Informant, Twister and others have incredibly potent lyrical messages and symbolisms etc. Maybe they don't.
In short - get it, but not after you already have several other Fall albums. I'm going to skim the cream off this disc when I stick it in the computer and have 7 or 8 brilliant tracks for the MP3 player.
