590. Pixies - trompe le monde


Pixies final album was louder and faster than their previous records and I think that may have turned off some listeners - gone were Kim Deal's clear vocals, leaf like layerings, and clear beats - in favor of a fuller mix, a denser volume of sound, yet still produced by Gil Norton. I'm sitting here listening to it pretty loudly and it can become overwhelming, often without a second to catch your breath... includes the great "U-Mass", "Subbacultcha" and "Alec Eiffel". Not the best Pixies record but still a good one.

8.7 out of 10

U-Mass

this bitch has always been my favorite of the pixies records. after listening to them all (which I know you have) do you feel that they got progressively harder on each record? discuss

They def. got harder with each release, which wasn't a bad thing - but what made the previous records so great was the balance - one minute you have this little acoustic ditty with "la, la, la's", then all of a sudden you hear a guitar riff that sounds like a drill and one of the loudest yells humanly possible out of Frank Black. So while I love this record, I can't help but love the others more. Do you have Bossanova?
