    Perverted By Language hints at the band’s shift towards a distinctly pop approach, one that they would perfect via their Beggars Banquet output that immediately followed. Yet again, the force and panic of their initial Rough Trade recordings remains the foundation for much of the album. Perverted by Language is the Brix era prologue, the final stage of metamorphosis. Possibly the only post-punk nursery rhyme, "Eat Y'self Fitter" bounds out of the gate with an absurd grin on its face. Bass and drums beat a schoolyard-chant rhythm to death. Smith details a hapless paranoiac between call-and-response choruses, The Fall gone.

In its own way, PERVERTED BY LANGUAGE is a transitional album. It is the first album to feature Brix on guitar, and it moves back towards more poppier material that would reach fruition with the next two albums. However, it plays like the Fall's quintessential album/5(25).

By the time the Fall made studio recordings of that remarkable session’s songs, for their Perverted By Language album, they’d acquired another guitarist, Smith’s new American wife Brix.

Perverted By Language We're just 5 ordinary guys (except one's a girl) from Brussels (except the Belgian) who like making music. We've opened for For Against, Chameleons Vox, Red Zebra, The Breath of Life.

Critics have suggested a resemblance to Joy Division, Pere Ubu & Kitchens of Distinction. We never set out to sound like anything or anyone. 'Perverted by Language' is (like any other 80's Fall album) an album of intricacy.

An album not even Smith could explain to an individual. What is very intelligible, however, is the always minimalist approach and often underrated musicianship of each member of The Fall. Perverted By Language is a complete and easy listening record for any music lover.
