The Fall - The Unutterable LP 2000

Here's a Fall album that could quite easily have been made at any point in the last 30 years. It has all the stock components, but is let down by a lack of consistency and perhaps our over-familiarity with the Mark E Smith blueprint. It's a cut above most of today's protagonists but as a Fall album it's basically average. 'Sons of Temperance', 'Hot Runes' and 'Serum' are all agreeable enough but 'Dr. Bucks' Letter' is the real star of the show with the 'Essence of Tong' magazine reading as brilliant and funny as anything the Fall have ever produced. If you like the Fall, you'll like it.
