I have been regretting not going to see the Fall at the start of the month, not because the reviews were great, far from it, however it does seem that Smith's performances got better and he was visible a lot more the more that the tour went on. I think that I am regretting it because I'm beginning to think that there may not be that many more opportunities what with the fact that he doesn't seem to be fit enough and also that I find the new album less than essential. It has it's moments but has far too much filler for me and it seems that lyrically Smith is far from at his best which is quite ironic as the band from the bootlegs from this past tour seem to be on top form. Maybe after all this time I'm just "over" the Fall.
Here is my highlight from the last album which I think, if I'm wrong and I hope I am Smith gets fit and working properly again could be a monster of a song live.
