One of the best Fall albums,
This review is from: Real New Fall Lp, The (Formerly Country On The Click) (Audio CD)
I've been listening to this CD for the past few days and am really enjoying it. I liked the Fall when they first started - Live at the Witch Trials, Repetition etc - and stayed with them until the last 80s when I lost interest. However I have recently started to listen to them again, and was very impressed with The Unutterable, but this is better. It is very difficult to pick out any weak tracks on this. There are the tracks with powerful riffs and Smith snarling over the top ("Sparta F-ah, C-ah") but also songs where Smith goes as close as he ever does to actually singing ("Mountain Energei" and "Janet, Johnny and James"). Each track has got something clever and interesting - and enjoyable - about it. I have read that this album was originally planned for release earlier in the year but was held back. It looks as if they have worked hard on the album to make all the tracks really good, instead of just recording for a few days and releasing whatever came out of it.
