Released in early 2007, REFORMATION POST T.L.C. marks the Fall's third chapter in its revitalized run on the Narnack label. Even more notably, it signals yet another incarnation of the long-running British post-punk act, with the album recorded shortly after much of the band abruptly abandoned notoriously difficult frontman/founder Mark E. Smith and his wife, keyboardist/vocalist Eleni Poulou, while on tour in the United States. Although the songs on T.L.C., performed with an impromptu cadre of American musicians, don't quite carry the heft or precision of those on preceding albums, their lo-fi, off-the-cuff quality is charming in its own way, with the lumbering "Reformation" (a clear cousin of FALL HEADS ROLL's fierce "Blindness") and the hard-charging "Fall Sound," revealing that, thankfully, the ever-ranting Smith shows no signs of slowing down or shutting up.
