8/10 The Doc Customer review, 3rd June 2016

Doesn't seem to be quite as well-regarded in some quarters as Pod, but this is a great record just the same. When I was a teenager in the '90s, I used to get thoroughly pissed off with boring old farts who did nothing but bang on about how great music was in the '60s. Now I'm a boring old fart myself, I tend to bang on an awful lot about how great music was in the '90s. Cos it was, like. Deal with it.

Here's another terrific example of why, though. The Breeders were an excellent band, fronted by Kim Deal (and initially Tanya Donnelly too, a match made in bubble-grunge heaven) and trading primarily in dense, scuzzy pop tunes packed with filthy guitars, with Deal's trademark saccharine vocals on top. If you were to make a list of classic '90s alt rock records, this would have to be in there somewhere, as would Pod and both Belly records. Kim Deal is, and always has been, a total superstar to some of us, and records like this are the reason why.


8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 26th October 2014

The Breeders first album since the departure of Tanya Donnelly who left to form Belly, opens with the slow, plodding, grungy riff of “New Year” then the song begins to rock, getting us ready for the next track - the mega indie disco floor-filling masterpiece that is “Cannonball” which is without doubt their best song. The creepy, stalker-ish “Do You Love Me Now?” is superb, although there is a better version on the b-side of the “Divine Hammer” single with J Mascis joining Kim Deal on vocals. The punchy “I Just Want To Get Along” and “Saints” are other outstanding highlights. “Drivin’ on 9” is a pleasant, country-ish song which wraps things up nicely. This and its predecessor, “Pod” are their best albums.
