Excellent

ProAn almost indecent amount of variety on display

ConsNot so much a "band" record

Bands are strange, ephemeral things. Logic doesn't apply. What would happen if you threw together the world's greatest singer, its most technically proficient bassist, its most ludicrously gifted guitarist, its most joint-wreckingly dextrous keyboardist, and Christendom's most almighty drummer...

Consn/a

The Pixies... a great band for every generation. Trompe le Monde... the album that ended that generation. In fact, Trompe le Monde is credited with being one of the greatest Pixies albums and appears in many top 100 albums of the 1990's. The album itself was released in 1991 and includes a wide...

“Some guy named Joe”

published 14/07/2000

Trompe le Monde opens with the record’s title track, a short song which demonstrates some of Joey Santiago’s most impressive guitar tricks. The Pixies once said that this album, which was to be their last studio album, was going to be, “a full-on rock record”. The opener sets the vibe for the...

Super

ProOriginal, dynamic, and still great fun

ConsIt's not their best album, and you might get bored...

The Pixies are a great band, and have the rare quality of lacking any sort of pretension at all. Making a living on catchy, hook-laden two-minute rock songs, songwriter Frank Black somehow manages to sing about such themes as physical violence and sexual deviance whilst making music which is...

“Back in Black”

published 03/08/2000

ProAccessible, great fun.

ConsNone

Trompe Le Monde is the Pixies final LP before the band split leaving a legacy of bad feeling between Black Francis and Kim Deal. I find the album more accessible than earlier ones such as 'Bossanova' and 'Surfer Rosa' which, although excellent, take more time to click properly. 'Trompe Le Monde'...
