Early contender for worst album art 2015
why wasn't it recorded with the two drummers :(
from listening to this:
probably why I love it
not sure on that track tho :/
this one is a fucking monster though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uu66BTUdM_Q
got high hopes for the new album, Ersatz GB and Re-Mit didn't really do it for me tbh, quite liked that EP they put out though.
if The Fall has some freak smash hit multi-platinum album on both sides of the Atlantic.
I had almost (almost) given up following two disappointing records (Re-Mit in particular is a stinker) but SLT is a classic.
Strong start (as is traditional with good Fall records) with Venice With The Girls. Unlike the DIS reviewer I really like Junger Cloth (those keyboards! Also, like the spoken Dr Buck's Letter style vocals, it's the only way you can understand MES here days) and Stout Man. Auto Chip is a classic and it finishes powerfully with Snazzy, Fibre Book Troll and Quit iPhone.
Bad cover, great record.
Imperial Wax Solvent and particularly YFOC are brilliant, Ersatz GB is the stinker, Re-Mit I reckon is half great but padded out with too much filler.
Best for half a decade though definitely. Can't stop listening to Dedication Not Medication.
Monocard is superb, as is Taking Off
Taking Off especially
Though I agree IWS and YFOC are both good records.
