    The fact that The Fall are still going is remarkable enough; the fact that they're still making extraordinary records is even more so. [Jul 2013, p.92]

    As with nearly all of the Fall, this album does what it wants to do, forcing the listener to submit to its terms.

    Nothing about this album makes a lick of sense. If you’re a longtime obsessive fan of the group (and really there is no other kind), though, you don’t really care if it does. Like fellow prolific weirdo Jandek, it’s enough that Smith is still out there spouting off against all odds.

    Like all the band's recent output, Re-Mit isn't going to win over anyone who isn't already a Fall devotee.

    Re-Mit sounds alive, funny even, as if Smith has made peace with something--possibly his own genius.

    Not wonderful, but certainly frightening. [Jul 2013, p.75]

    Throughout the entire album, you’re left wondering how Smith, who is responsible for some of the most untouchable, spontaneous punk classics of all time, could muster the audacity to purposefully sound like such a parody of his previous self.

    Like the relentless repetition that is their signature, The Fall have been making the same album for almost 35 years. But what an album! TheyLike the relentless repetition that is their signature, The Fall have been making the same album for almost 35 years. But what an album! They keep getting better. They are keeping it fresh. Since they shuttled their dabbling in syth-pop about 12 years ago, they have been on a roll. This may not be their best album, but it is nevertheless excellent. Collapse
