The famous lyrical rant of "Feel the wrath of my bombast" appears a couple of minutes into This Nation's Saving Grace and sums up the aesthetic and drive of this band. Frontman Mark E. Smith is quite the little ball of bile-spewing fury, and he spits out his disgust over the course of eleven grimy little numbers. The Fall was unlike a lot of their peers, though, and took the time to expand the UK punk sound in different ways than before. Some debate rages over whether this is the most essential Fall album, but it's almost certainly one of the best places to start getting into them.
