An energised splicing of riff, declamation and technology that sounds like a thrilling synthesis of 2003's The Real New Fall LP and 2005's Fall Heads Roll, delivered with the highest levels of vigour for some time. [Feb 2007, p.92]
Reformation Post TLC may lack a tune as monumental as, say, the unforgettable ‘Hip Priest’ from Hex Enduction Hour, but 30 years into his career, Smith is still making music with the kind of vitality and imagination that shame most musicians half his age.
It’s not a classic, nor is it an embarrassment. It’s a disc which says: we’re the Fall, we’re still going and, frankly, you should bloody well be pleased about that. A statement with which I’m inclined to agree.
