Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • The Fall: Mark E. Smith (vocals); Ben Pritchard (guitar); Dingo (banjo); Elena Poulou (synthesizer); Steve Trafford (bass instrument); Spencer Birtwhistle (drums).
  • The official studio follow-up to THE REAL NEW FALL LP, 2005's FALL HEADS ROLL finds the long-running, ever-shifting UK post-punks releasing yet another fine album of jagged musical vitriol. Surly mastermind Mark E. Smith leads his troops through a largely aggressive set that includes the buzzing, synth-laden "Pacifying Joint" and, continuing the Fall's tradition of fine cover tunes, a punchy, streamlined rendition of the Move's "I Can Hear the Grass Grow."
  • Although Smith's bizarre lyrics and distinctive, half-spoken shout are most obviously suited for rocked-out songs, the notorious singer seems as comfortable with the light, melodic "Midnight Aspen" as the relentless, rumbling "Blindness." While many of the Fall's late-1970s peers (Gang of Four and Wire among them) garnered attention with early-21st-century reunions, Smith has stuck to his brilliantly demented vision throughout the decades. FALL HEADS ROLL, while perhaps not as landmark as LIVE AT THE WITCH TRIALS or THIS NATION'S SAVING GRACE, serves as one more excellent addition to the group's extensive catalog.
Professional Reviews
Magnet (p.96) - "Smith slips in front of FALL HEADS ROLL's buzzy synthesizers and actively ardent guitars with his usual sneering bile."

The Wire (p.56) - "Lean, charged, unfussy and deceptive. It's harder than it looks to make simplicity sound this satisfying."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 - "The album's threads gather to form memorable intangibilities and accusations, whose mystery hangs together on repeated playing."
