To get the clichés out of the way first, the Fall are really literate, mumbling curmudgeon leader Mark E. Smith and anyone he chooses. Smith is famous for firing bandmembers, creating a slew of ex-Fall people who almost outnumber the amount of compilations released under the band's name, and most of those compilations are for "hardcore fans only." The final, and probably most accurate, cliché is that there is no Fall fan but a hardcore one, which brings up the question of who this amazing box set is made for. The Fall Box Set covers the band's whole career in five CDs, one featuring "live rarities" for "hardcore fans only" while the other four cover the band's career chronologically with singles, album tracks, and a handful of unreleased numbers.
