8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 6th November 2014
“Teenager Of The Year” is Frank Black’s best solo album. It has the energy that was last seen on the Pixies “Trompe Le Monde”, it follows the Pixies ethos of having lots of short songs rather than the conventional 10 or 12, and has Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago playing on it. The opening few notes of first track “What Ever Happened To Pong” are so typical of Santiago’s playing, I am immediately comforted by them. Critically, Frank Black’s albums have always disappointed and I think that generally this is unfair. For example, “(I Want To Live) On An Abstract Plain” is better than anything on the Pixies’ “Bossanova”. If none of this convinces you to buy it, then it does have his best song on too “Headache”, which is more-or-less, as good as anything he’s done.
