The most highly regarded album by the Fall on this particular site, and this album does still have much to shout about, it is better for example than the further trio of Brix albums that followed it. However, in my opinion it cannot compete with the likes of Grotesque, Hex or Perverted By Language, the songs aren't quite as good.

As an album it is quite consistent but it doesn't have that one truly exceptional Fall track on it, it has about five tracks that are very good which is almost enough really.

This has to be the most underrated album of all time. Every song is dynamite. 548th best album is absolutely criminal.

It's not an easy thing to listen to, but it has a lasting resonance that I can't quite describe. This is a properly fleshed out Post-Punk work, and it shows with wonderful moodniess. If you can give it the time to appreciate it, it quickly becomes an excellent album.

You'll either love this or hate it. I love it and think that Mark E. was at his peak in the mid eighties!
