  • Summary: Yes, as you may have surmised, this is the real new Fall full-length (just one in a very, very long line of releases from the amazingly prolific Mark E. Smith and company). Originally titled 'Country On The Click,' this album was leaked in early stages on the Internet, but has since been remixed and resequenced. Expand

    Great by Smith's standards. Practically genius by everybody else's. [Feb 2004, p.74]
  2. This is the sound, throughout, of a remarkable institution doing all the things they do best and sounding as alive as they ever have.
  3. The Real New Fall LP is as solid and interesting as anything the group has released in the last ten years.
  4. Incomprehensible but irresistible.
  5. If the Fall... have not just released their best record in a decade, they have certainly released a more consistent and accessible one, just in time for the tail-end of the post-punk renaissance.
  6. 60
    The mood is unsettling, exhausted and energetic at the same time. [Oct 2004, p.120]
