"Fallout indeed! With a woozy saloon piano threatening to throw the melodies off kilter, drenching feedback so thick it sounds painted on, and Brian Dunnís just barely awake after sleeping on the floor voice croaking out the tune, this is one Hell of a dark set of songs. Red eyes, bleary whiskey talk, throwing up on Irish Sunday - you can practically smell the soggy cigarettes and feel the stale beer sticky floor listening to this record. Itís more than an understatement to say that not a lot of light shines through these litanies of regret that Dunn has fashioned into songs. And while itís true that at a certain point confessing and spewing angst isnít art Ė itís therapy Ėthereís more than enough of interest going on in each of these numbers to allow Dunn to pull it off. ĎExamining the Falloutí is a fractured and powerful artistic statement that gets better with repeated exposure. Not for the timid or easily upset."
