Glad to see that after dragging their heels a bit with Country on the Click, they're getting back to banging out the new records, even if two out of four on this one are re-re-recorded from CotC. (This is as opposed to cranking out re-re-repackagings of their back catalogue or more pointless post-Brix-I-era live albums--honestly, I think there's no call for a sequel to The Twenty-Seven Points for at least another eight years or so.) Gratified, especially, by the blunt dumbness of "(We Are) Mod Mock Goth," which is co-credited to Poulou, his new wife/keyboardist, I think. Also regret that there's nobody in the current Fall who's willing to assert an instrumental identity other than general Fallness--if MES and Brix could reconcile, you'd think that MES and Craig Scanlon could, too...! Not that that's likely to happen, I suppose.
