Contrary to Rezzaks review - I think the sound of this album COMPLETELY works and is not the first time they have recorded this way - Listen to their finest work on POD!!!
In fact it is quite refreshing not to hear an overproduced sound nowadays. i'm only on my second listen but it's probably their finest and most surprising work to date

I wish folk would stop droning on about The Last Splash. The Breeders have made 4 albums &, on reflection, it's The Last Splash that's the aberration. Commercial, compromised, a handful of great tracks surrounded by a bunch of mediocre ones. Their 2 LPs since, Mountain Battles & Title TK, hark back to the muddier basement atmospheres of Pod, their 1990 debut, & both find Kim & Kelley single-mindedly forging their own opaque path. Of the 2, Title TK is the most accessible (by a whisker), but Mountain Battles definitely shouldn't be ignored - it's a smouldering, shadowy collection of songs that evades obvious tangibility. The entire LP seems audibly smeared somehow, & is curiously, tantilisingly indecipherable, even down to the noncommittal title. So many (unanswered) questions. Personally, I love it (& them).

Despite a promising start, Mountain Battles never recreates the form shown on Last Splash or in the band members's other projects The Pixies and Throwing Muses.
Not that The Breeders are ready to be put out to grass just yet - tracks like Bang On, Istanbul and No Way demonstrate that there's plenty of worth in Mountain Battles, and followers of The Breeders will be satisfied at what is an increasingly rare outing for the group.
There's just too many disappointments in between holding the album back for the casual listener.

I bought this album the day it came out (ignoring the fact it had already been leaked on the net). I was gobsmacked how muddy the sound was at first. But the more i played it, the more it made sense. The way it's recorded gives it a warm cosey feel. Tracks like 'We're Gonna Rise' especially. This is what truly picks this album out from other albums. Some people will find it unbarable (get over it) that it doesn;t sound like something they have heard before, but the sound is meant to sound this way. It's a beautiful album.

The artwork is brilliant, Vaughan Oliver is a wizard!

Easily their best. If you like imaginative, experimental, intelligent music then this is for you.

If you like their other albums your love this I. It's great as its different to the other ones in a good way with cool songs that rock out, nice mellow numbers and everything else in between. I wasnt disapointed at all and im surprised the other reviewers are being so harsh, i think its good when bands dont churn out the same old thing go buy it. It got 8 out of 10 in nme too.

Six years on from 'Title TK', and a massive 15 years since 'Last Splash',I awaited this album with relish and I have to say I am not disappointed. After the first listen I wasn't 100% convinced, but after listening on, I feel that Kim, Kelley, Jose and Mando have really hit the spot with this one. Rough edged rockin' interspersed with a more tranquil melodic side. Having been a Breeders fan since their inception, this album confirmed that, ok, it maybe isn't on a par with Last Splash (although personally I think Title TK is their best work), it has been 6 years in the waiting and just like Frank Black/Black Francis they are evolving and changing evermore. Surely we can't expect after all this time for them to just drop in where they left off. Don't forget Kim & co are getting older, as am I, and I think this album has a sublime maturity to it,and has been worth the wait.
P.S. The Glasgow gig last night 08/04 was the best ever, all the favourites from 'Pod' onwards, and some stonkers from 'Mountain Battles'. I think they could gain new fans from this release, and I only hope it isn't 6 years till the next one.

Also the limited edition version is a digi pack with a cool little booklet design that slots inside.
