1.0 out of 5 stars Weak, disoriented, 17 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Code: Selfish (Audio CD)
This 1992 album marks the beginning of a particularly dark period of The Fall in the early 1990s. Having lost all sense of direction after the departure of Brix Smith and Martin Bramah, the band produced a number of albums that merely continued previous developments without adding any spark or sign that any energy was left in them. Code Selfish is perhaps the worst of these albums, and it would be another 4 years until the group was finally back in form. All tracks on this album are eminently forgettable, and even the one slightly above-average track, 'Free Range' appears in a shallow mix that is much inferior to the single version. I guess only completionists might be interested in this CD.

What rubbish you talk.
This was the Fall's greatest period.
Infotainment Scan is one of their finest albums and the early 90s produced countless Fall gems.

What tripe!
'Middle Class Revolt'
'The Infotainment Scan'
'Extricate'
'Shift Work'
All excellent Fall albums from the early 90's, as is 'Code Selfish'
