4.0 out of 5 stars Be glad they're back 21 May 2002
Format:Audio CD
Nine years on since their last album, TitleTKs sound remains resolutely fixed in the era that produced the definitive Last Splash. While the latter was imbued with a feeling of warm, voluptuous, and happy optimism, TitleTK is however a far more steely and stripped affair, shot through with a rugged confidence that nevertheless retains much of the bands defining traits. Ragged and buzzing guitars stop and start while drums carry time, and the Deal sisters voices sound at once both angelic and god-forsaken, if not completely identical at times.
I think this is an excellent record. There's a generous smattering of some of the beautifully languid melodies any previous fan would hope for - 'Off You', 'Too Alive', 'Forced to Drive' as well as the unmistakable Breeders sound of headlong guitar rushes that new listeners might more readily be captivated by - 'Son of Three', 'Huffer', and again 'Forced To Drive', a stand out track in my opinion.
As an album it hangs together well, perhaps even moreso than its predecessor, if only for its more clipped length, but it's clear that the intervening years has done nothing to diminish the Deal sisters' way with a catchy tune. Definitely darker and more ill at ease sounding, but that's never been a bad thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A welcome return 7 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD with as much trepadation as anticipation - what could one expect after a nine year absence?? Well, I'm glad to say that one can expect a great album packed full of gorgeous riffs and tunes. It's got a darker tone to it than previous records, and can only be fully appreciated after a couple of listens, but if you want to know what real music is then Kim Deal is the lady for you! From the opening call-and-reply of the barely distinguishable twins on Little Fury, to the utter divine beauty Off You (the line "I am the scarlet in the Autumn, I am the make-up on your eyes"!), through to the punky, catchy Son of Three and Huffer, this is an essential part of any album collection. Some may say its not as good as Last Splash, but it's still going to be a hell of a lot better than 90% of the records in your collection...........

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album of 2002 9 Dec 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was my favourite album of 2002 and I still love it. It's very different to The Breeders' previous album Last Splash. Nowhere near as poppy and fun, it has a more mature feel, and there's only really one track on the album that in any way harks back to 1993, and that comes near the end of the album. But that doesnt matter because what you get instead in just incredible. There are no duff tracks on this album at all, each one is expertly performed and produced and what makes it special is they all come together so well to give the album a great sense of completeness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure Goodness! 18 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
Well even though the breeders could be described as music for a diffent generation than mine (im 17)i still fell that this album is relevent and enjoyable for all ages of music fan. From those who have neaver heard of bands like the breeders or the pixies or sonic youth to those who built shrines to them in the late 80's or early 90,s. one thing that is noticable is the influenec that the breeders have had on certain modern punk act's notably brody for the "Distillers". The song full on idle sounds so like a mellow "Distillers" song its untrue. But at the end of the day this is a solid accomplised slice of indie punk! NICE

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost... but not quite 18 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
After Pod, there may never be another ground-breaking Breeders album. Nothing could touch its sublimely female feel, the stripped-bare construction (long before White Stripes recorded De Stijl), the unique way real, living, breathing songs would grow out of a seemingly disconnected collection of sounds. But The Last Splash ended all that. It may have been what the public wanted, but we lost something really special about the Breeders. Title TK winds back the clock, as if to say, "making perfect indie pop was easy, but making something new and different is hard". Unfortunately where Pod was new and different, Title TK just isn't. It's very good, but it's all been done before. And unlike Pod, it won't improve with time.
Buy it, but only because it's a rehearsal for the album we know they are capable of.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe not so Gigantic 31 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was really looking forward to this album coming out, and I am not the least bit disappointed by it. It carries the same sort of tempo throughout and is much more like the Amps album than the two previous Breeders albums. standout tracks have to be Little Fury, Sinnister Foxx and With You. Must buy for any Breeders fan. Saw them live at Glasgow QMU and they produced a good set that had a very intimate atmosphere

5.0 out of 5 stars Indie music for an older generation 31 May 2002
Format:Audio CD
Title TK is a record made by two sisters who have acquired a lot of subject matter to sing about over the 9 years. The record has obvious appeal - huffer stands out a mile and is a refreshing piece of pop perfection reminisent of the 'Muses Not to Soon or Honey Chain. More than that this album is not just a statement from 1991 but in Off You - Kim shows a lyrical poise that her fan base (now circa 30) - will relate to. If you liked any 4AD stuff then you will love this. In the same way that This Mortal Coil grows on you and never will stop growing on you- so will Title TK. Not Last Splash, no need to remake Last Splash - and on the strength of this album - hopefully not their last.

5.0 out of 5 stars blast from the past
if you love the Breeders you'll most likely love this - if you're looking for something progressive or new - then you won't. This is comfortably nostalgic
