Editorial Reviews

Your Future Our Clutter is The Fall at their most rampant, most forward moving, bone-shaking best. With nine tracks that rock like raw fury, we see The Fall heading into their next decade with the same intensity with which they started.

How in the hell does he keep doing it? The guy's pushing 60 and writes music with more rebellion and vigor than people a third his age. Same with Wire with the Read & Burn series. Those guys are still putting out music that'll slice your head clean off your shoulders.

So, right, here it is then: the latest Fall record and it's just unreasonably good. Best they've released since Country On the Click by far and may be the best since the 80s. It's an expertly balanced marriage of what makes The Fall The Fall with a funky and dare I type [near] radio-friendly sensibility? All of the usual aspects of The Fall are present: Smith's riot-ready rants stumbling aggressively over an undercarriage of dissonance. But there's also a sense of fun that isn't always discernable; gone is Imperial Wax Solvent's sense of impending doom replaced by some music that's almost ... danceable? The opening drum rhythm of the record dares anyone to sit still. And the record just gets better and better from there. They touch on epic post-rock with Bury, Pts 1 & 3, put up some Western motorik with Cowboy George that disintegrates into some krautrock-style goodness at the end, and then they pretty much turn your spine into dust with Y.O.F.C. / Slippy Floor. And how do they end the record? With one of the most dark and intense industrial workouts you could expect to hear outside of Coil or Nine Inch Nails.

It's too early to say yet but this could be my favorite record of 2010. It's definitely one of my top five Fall records of all time. Whether you've never listened to The Fall before or you've been there since the Witch Trials, Your Future Our Clutter should be heard. Preferably at near lethal volume.

So while the last Fall album, Imperial Wax Solvent, (as many albums since The Unutterable) had some high points, but seemed to have a bit of ADD and had some parts that were painful for me to listen to, I find this album to be downright addictive. This is also one of the more accessible Fall albums in years, while still maintaining the odd weirdness that pervades everything they do. The Fall seems to usually have a "buzz" on their tracks, something atonal, dissonant, out of place, out of tune, out of context that either completes the song or makes you squirm in your seat (sometimes it's if Mark trying to actually sing). This album goes a mostly electronic route for that buzz effect, with chirps, squeaks, growls, and all sorts of sounds non-characterizable all over the place. As always, there is not quite anything that sounds like this album out there, yet this one, like all Fall albums, borrows from all sorts of bands and styles. You just can't slap a label on it.

The thing that stands out most on this album are the dual punch of bass and drums. Strong, bold, powerful, hitting you in the chest all the time. Really good with bass-boosting headphones. Elena's keyboards are fantastic, providing the central theme on several songs, or providing the all-important buzz on the tracks. Some really beautiful riffs in this (such as in the end of Mexico Wax Solvent); she gets better with each album. The guitar seems different on this album, at times almost violently aggressive and driving, other tracks nearly invisible, but really the important tie-in, weaving everything together. Mark's vocals are the best in years. Few of the wince-inducing moments where he tries to sing (sorry, I have my limits), and lyrically, some of the best vignettes and impressions in a truly long time.

Clean & consistent? For a Fall record, is this praise? Indeed.

The production's snappy and the instrumentation-- same line-up as "Imperial Wax Solvent," (see my review)-- stays sharp. While I miss the chanted, catchier tunes of mid-decade "Real New Fall Album" & "Fall Heads Roll," their best from the '00s, this resembles "IWS" with its more keyboard-driven, vamping sound similar to mid-80s Fall. With this band, great eons of time pass between line-ups, fallow and fertile periods, and attitudes of Mark E. Smith, his partner or lack, and whomever he recruits or demotes in turn every few years, or months.

The stability of this backing band therefore shows similarities with the preceding CD. And "Mexican Wax Solvent" dutifully blends south-of-the-border airs with "IWS" electronics; "Chino" queasily wrenches rhythms into am aural hangover a few songs later. There's a twangy air in the mix that recalls Western bleakness and Tex-Mex raw, weathered decay. "Weather Report 2" seems to revisit 1988's bouncy "I Am Curious (Orange)" but with a bleary nod ("I gave you the best years of my life") to the past legacy of Smith and his sonic youth.

The album runs rapidly. Many Fall records have fifteen or so songs and often falter towards their finish. Brevity and clarity work here for a tougher, more chewed-off and spit-out delivery from vocalist and band that hurries this along in more hectic fashion. For a 53-year-old singer, I admire this performance. The musicians support MES in quick step and the combined march of leader and followers makes for a healthy workout that players half the age of the singer might be flummoxed to match. It's a trimmed-down, bulked-up hefty sound that races past rather than lumbers by.
