The Fall

The new Fall album almost snuck by me. Picked it up last night when I happened upon it at my local Newbury Comics. No chance to give it a full listen yet, but the bits I heard sounded decent-ish. Frankly, some Fall songs are just hard to listen to, and this album includes some of the typical atonal free-verse pieces that might be interesting to hear once, but generally aren't what you'd throw on to give yourself a good groove first thing in the morning when you're trying to get pumped up for the new day. Fortunately, the more rockin' songs sound good, so my preliminary judgment is in favor of the album ... though I'm going to bitterly resent it when the domestic release comes out with more tracks than the import I paid out my arse sideways for.
