Customer Review

on 30 March 2005
...RUNNER are on this seminal, influential meisterwerk from the (mighty) FALL.
Considered by many FALL fans (myself included) as representing perhaps the absolute peak of their most fertile creative period, this album follows the equally essential PERVERTED BY LANGUAGE (1983), THE WONDERFUL AND FRIGHTENING WORLD OF THE FALL (1984) and the simply fantastic THIS NATION'S SAVING GRACE (1985).
Every track is brilliant, from the rumbling genius of the dualling guitars on ace opener R.O.D. (Realm of Dusk) to the hilarious BOURNEMOUTH RUNNER (based on the true event whereby some wag nicked the band's sound equipment before a gig!!), M.E.S. and the collective are on searing, top form. Just listen to the extraordinary drums and guitars on BOURNEMOUTH RUNNER, DKTR FAUSTUS and...just about every other track.
The FALL remain unique, unclassifiable and cherished by FALL fans, lovers of genuinely independent rock music and those of us who like a bit of spice, spite and even enjoy the odd shards of literary allusion with our 'meat and potatoes' FALL.
If you are new to the mighty FALL, give this a try. You will be surprised and delighted with the strange rock melodies, offbeat lyrics and awesome power of the collective at their very, very best....
