Album Review

If you're familiar with second-tier Fall at all, you're already well aware that there are two or three landfills worth of bogus and underwhelming compilations out already, but Rebellious Jukebox deserves some attention because it's one of the oddest ones yet. There's a heck of a lot of highlights here, but the eras covered are completely perplexing. Disc one and the first quarter of disc two do a fair job of covering the years 1978-1983, missing some great moments but grabbing enough of the classics to give the impression the compilers are on top of it.

The somewhat amusing DVD is the reason the hardcore should care at all, but newcomers will be left with more questions than answers.

With his snarling, nearly incomprehensible vocals and consuming, bitter cynicism, Smith became a cult legend in indie and alternative rock. Over the course of their career, the Fall went through a number of shifts in musical style, yet the foundation of their sound was a...
