Two clichés to get rid of right away are that Time Enough at Last is another unnecessary outtakes-and-live compilation to clutter the Fall's unwieldy discography and that it's for hardcore fans only. The three discs included were all originally released with little information on when, where, and who by the Trojan Records imprint Receiver. The new liner notes by Record Collector's Daryl Easlea do 'fess up to the dodgy roots of these releases, so at least there seems to be some concern for the fans and the band, but noting "demo," "live," or "instrumental" on the track listing could have raised the credibility a bit more. There's still no explanation of who chose the tracks or put together the interesting segues in between them. The first disc, Oxymoron, draws the bulk of its material from The Light User Syndrome and Cerebral Caustic era, except for a weird remix of the 1979 classic "Psychic Dancehall," now titled "E.S.P. Disco" (hence the claim that the collection covers 1979-1996). A stomping studio recording of "Oxymoron" and an inspired "Chillinism" are highlights, but "Chillinism" will show up twice more in the set under different titles, and the live recordings of the two-drummer Fall that fill the rest of the disc are direct from the soundboard and sound flat and sloppy. The Cheetham Hill disc looks more promising with some mid-'80s tracks listed, but they're live versions that don't live up to their studio counterparts. The final disc, 15 Ways to Leave Your Man, claims to be from a 1996 concert in London, but the sound quality differs from track to track, perhaps another in the long list of bibliographic errors suffered by the Fall. The show does feature a less-sober and looser Mark E. Smith, whose vocal whoops and hollers are as jarring and exciting as ever, but some more room ambience would have gone a long way to make it a more worthy addition. The sonically muddy version of "Hey Student" that closes the set is a prime example of what's wrong here: great song, decent performance, but if it's live, where did the fade-out and the multi-tracking of Smith's voice come from? Time Enough at Last doesn't have enough choice material for the casual fan, but fanatics might benefit from the new liner notes and the convenience of getting it all at once at a fair price. ~ David Jeffries

The Golden Age of American Death Metal

An often rejected, parodied and misinterpreted sub-genre of metal, the fierce death metal has nevertheless succeeded in garnering a significant following over the decades. Arriving in the 80s, the genre continues to evolve; from its early pursuit of the ultra-violent to its more recent incorporation of aspects from more mainstream genres. Let us look back at the origins of death metal.

The Replacements: Don't Tell A Soul Redux

Beset by problematic recording sessions amid internal combustion, the Replacements’ sixth album—originally released in 1989—gets a second chance as part of a new box set...

Iggy and the Stooges: The Dawn of Punk

In 1969, a group of self-confessed cretins dynamited rock'n'roll with a charge of distortion and nihilistic lyrics. At the head of these Stooges was Iggy Pop, a sort of obsessive, rebellious Nijinsky, who was destined to become the Godfather of punk rock.
