    Rather than a fall, Norah in fact bounces back up with this release. The songs are all unique, yet bonded by similarities. The Fall has a perfect, melodic flow to it, and its beautiful to listen to.

    The emotional imprint of The Fall moves beyond the pining, wistful tones that are her trademark in favour of Sex And The City scenarios bursting with heartbreak, regret and emotional devastation.
  2. The Fall is ultimately a mildly more adventurous art-pop take on her piano-based cabaret style.
  3. If the hardcore fanbase feel a blanch coming on, this isn't all wilful eclecticism gone mad. King's work is The Fall's unifying factor that keeps it cohesive.
