I won't bore you with my Fall credentials, suffice to say that they are an expensive habit. Of late (i.e. the last 5-8 years their albums seem to have become less satisfying, starting brilliantly but fading away.

4.0 out of 5 stars not enough reality??, 5 Sep 2003
The filmwas a triumph, appealing to Big Brother addicts & detractors alike. The soundtrack too works, with just enough "soundbite" to keep reminding you your listening to a soundtrack but with songs that stand up well enough on their own. The opening bars are a shock, it sounds like early 80's AC/DC but then the songs kick in and were confronted by a swirling, soaring wall of harmonic guitars, catchy hooks and odd surprises. It's always good to hear "Love Will Tear Us Apart" too, although there are many other reasons for buying this album.
Go on, be a conteneder.....
