There's a review in the latest issue of Loud and Quiet, one of those freebie mags you'll find littering the floors of all good record shops (and some not so great ones).

Anyway, it gets 5/10 (one of the lowest scores in the issue) but the weird thing is, although the reviewer considers it a below-par effort, the way they describe it makes you wonder if it might ironically be better than usual. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

What? Oh, alright. It's on p42 here:

1:Prem. There is such a thing as 'The Theory of Everything'.
2:Prem. There is such a thing as 'The THeory of Everythimg'.
3:Conc. There is such a thing as 'The Theory of Everythingamajig'. I couldn't remember everything.

It's interested that he says Nine Out of Ten has rockabilly guitar, which would mean it's a lot different than how it's been played live.

He's right to call 'Fol De Rol' "triumphant". I'm not sure we'll get anything better on the LP.

There's a plus/minus slider bottom right that increases the size of the image.

Another review here:

http://theafterword.co.uk/the-fall-new-facts-emerge/

It sounds fantastic!!!
As ever the style veers between the almost Ballroom Blitz Glam Rock stomp of ‘Brillo De Facto’ to the heavy sludge rock riffage of ‘Couples Vs Jobless Mid 30’s’ . On the title track an unamed Rapper/Grime artist duets with Mark which distinguishes it from sounding like several other recent Fall tracks.
^_^

'The line up is Greenway/Spurr/Melling who have backed Mark Smith almost as long as Hanley/Bramah/Wolstencroft.'...

...a line-up that lasted less than one album.... :huh:

Sorry BK, I admire your continued excitement over new Fall product, but it sounds shite. :huh:

Can't recall ever being so not looking forward to a new Fall LP. Which may of course mean it'll be absolutely brilliant. :D

Well, that exact configuration only recorded one song. I know this current lot can be a bit samey sometimes, but they've definitely recorded more than one song.

Either that or it's nothing like rockabilly and the reviewer's got it wrong.

Uncut's review of New Facts Emerge (p26 of the September edition) gives it 8/10.

It's a shame they didn't rate it highly enough to give it nine out of ten.

I got my vinyl copy in the mail today. Great first impression I must say!

It packs quite a punch and seems to have quite alot of quirks that I like so much about the Fall (that SLT was missing).

The Remainderer


Edit:
I've listened a couple of times, and I'll have to say the first half is excellent material. The last half: not so much, but maybe it'll grow on me.
Victoria Train Station Massacre is a prelude to New Facts Emerge, love 'em both.

Without wishing to spoil it too much. Are the two long tracks up to snuff? :unsure:

Best album since "Wise Ol' Man," certainly.
