And besides, getting a basis on what sound a band was founded on is always a good way of understanding their later efforts, if one chooses to venture them out as well.

Overall the music was quite good--compelling bass lines and drums working together nicely, good angular guitar, et cetera et cetera. "Frightened," "Music Scene," "Rebellious Jukebox," "Mother-Sister," "Futures and Pasts," "Two Steps Back," and the title monologue were my favorite tracks. Nice sound.

My biggest complaint, however is pretty unavoidable: Mark's voice. I know I'm going to sound like a prick for this, but British accents can be pretty grating to my ears for whatever reason, hence why Mark's vocals somewhat turned me off here. But that's just me. -_-
His vocals are one of the main attractions to me, and to many other fall fans too I'm pretty sure, so if it's not your thing I guess it isn't easy for you to get into the Fall. Oh well. If you liked them well enough to look further then that's worth it though; their sound varied quite a lot over the years. Definitely not a hear-one-album-and-you've-heard-it-all-band
