I've never been totally keen on Bend Sinister. Not that I've ever seen it as a bad album, just not as inspiring as This Nation's Saving Grace or Kurious Oranj when it comes to their mid-to-late '80s stuff. I agree with your choices of album highlights, although I'd personally have given US 80s-90s a nod (and I think I'm Going To Spain's their best cover, but I'm a bit of an Infotainment Scan fanboy anyway).

Anyway, good to see this thread back in business. I don't have the Frenz Experiment (which I believe is the next LP along), so I'll be looking forward to the next installment.

It's a really great song...

This thread blows my mind and reminds me about how far behind I am with my Fall collection.

Alright, Urban you really know your stuff when it comes to The Fall. I only have the albums 'Shift-Work' (1991), 'The Infotainment Scan' (1993) & an 'A-Sides' compilation album from 1990 which I like all the tracks from, especially 'Dead Beat Descendant' & 'Mr Pharmacist'. Also 'Living Too Late', 'Hit The North' & 'Hey! Luciani' are others that come to mind.
I also really like a song called 'Edinburgh Man' from the Shift-Work album.
Im intriguied to know what are your thoughts on these three albums?

it's funny. I have none of the Fall's music, never heard a song, and never even heard of them till i joined this site, but i just clicked the download button for both of the starter kits and am about to listen to both the entire way through.


anyways lets see if i hate this or not, ok?

I thought I had all The Fall studio albums, but thanks to your thread I found out I didn't and had to figure out which ones I was missing. Turns out it was only four albums; Totale's Turns, Seminal Live, Are You Are Missing Winner, and Reformation Post TLC.
The Fall (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia If you look Seminal Live and Totale's Turn are missing on that list... I don't know why I missed the other two albums.

That's a list of studio albums.

Seminal Live is half live / half studio.

Right now I have everything but Seminal Live... I was able to one torrent for it that had seeders, and it went idle half way into for days. I can't find it anywhere else. Do you have an up?

Gotcha covered - sit tight for a bit and I'll get it up. Some of the studio songs that make it up are easily among their best.

Urban, I demand that the Frenz Experiment be reviewed I've had the album for a while now, yet to listen to it properly (though I remember the semi-title track being particularly immense), so it'd be interesting to see what you think of it.
