This is for the Fall fanatic who must own everything. That said, there are fine performances here, but the sheer volume of material—five shows from the 2001 tour, including all the duplication one might expect—means this is mostly for the indefatigable listener. Sound quality varies, too. The Seattle show is the most powerful and direct. The gig from Brighton, England, is fantastic for the fan who wants to understand what Mark E.

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 near-cacophonous,...
