  1. But for all the defiance, something is audibly wrong with much of Reformation Post TLC.
  2. Clocking in at an hour, there's ample opportunity for missteps and toss-offs, but also first rate, two-chord grinds that stand up to the best material the Fall has ever recorded.
  3. All things considered Reformation Post-TLC feels like a backward step.
  4. There are moments of clarity when the band sounds fantastic, but they're not enough to save the record from landing in the band's forget pile.

    There are no real highlights among these soggy minimalist jams. [Apr 2007, p.87]
  6. Largely, Reformation: Post TLC is the sound of a band striving for the level of menace and achieving the level of annoyance. [#17, p.91]
  7. A dispirited, half-baked record. [Jun 2007, p.156]

    As a diehard Fall fan, I can't help but be disappointed by this. At least Fall Heads Roll had Blindness

    Another solid album from The Fall. Great to see them getting some recognition after almost 30 albums over the years. Perhaps the bass line Another solid album from The Fall. Great to see them getting some recognition after almost 30 albums over the years. Perhaps the bass line intro used in the Nissan (?) car commercial has reviatlized their career or at least given them some mainstream exposure. If you are familiar with The Fall, you should find this latest release very rewarding and worth multiple listenings. Enjoy! Full Review »
