The Less You Look the More You Find is an utterly pointless two-disc condensation of three CDs Receiver Records released in 1996, a time when the Fall's future was in serious doubt: Sinister Waltz, Oswald Defence Lawyer, and Fiend With a Violin. These three discs were themselves hodgepodges of alternate mixes, re-recordings, live tracks, and other ephemera from various periods in the Fall's career, randomly slung together with little regard for continuity or, frankly, quality control. This reduction does clear away some of the more obvious deadwood, but it still sounds like it was programmed by a computer from a play list filled with castoffs and failed experiments. Not even worthwhile for Fall completists, The Less You Look the More You Find is pretty much entirely useless.
