An absolutely genius compilation of Fall's best release "Slates" and the most essential live document in their catalog "A Part of America Therein", which captures the Fall on multiple dates on their 1981 US tour.
The material in Slates is astounding. Every song being an out-of-the-park home run. The fact that Slates is only a 6 song mini-album makes it even stronger because it leaves you wanting more. From the instantly memorable opener "Middle Mass", to "An Older Lover Etc." which has some of MES's funniest lyrics to the barely contained chaos of "Prole Art. Threat", you just can't beat any of the material on here. Essential.
