Verified Purchase(What is this?)

I love this album! Kim Deal is one of my favourite songwriters. Wonderful guitar riffs and enchanting melodies that I can't get enough of.

4.0 out of 5 stars good album, 12 Dec 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Last Splash (Audio CD)
This is a good album, plenty of catchy tunes and track 2, Cannonball, is very good indeed. However, I think I am in the minority here, but I actually prefer their 2002 album Title TK. Last Splash is slightly less consistent and the pace slows a bit too often for my liking. I think Title TK is technically and emotionally superior, and it's a more enjoyable listen as well. That's not to say this is a bad album, it's certainly worth buying and I have given it 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the top five albums of the nineties, 15 Nov 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Last Splash (Audio CD)
Here the luscious Kim Deal finally pulled away from the 4AD generica she produced with the first Breeders album, Pod. This is a record of heartbreak, absurdia and some full on pop tunes. Forget her exceptional contribution to the Pixies, forget Pod, forget the Amps - this is the Kim Deal record that matters. I'm in love.

This review is from: Last Splash (Audio CD)
Escaping from the shadow of your former band isn't easy. Norman Cook, Dave Grohl and John Lydon did. Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney and Billy Corgan didn't. And neither did the Pixies songwriters Frank Black and Kim Deal. Not that they actually had a shadow to escape from, as the Pixies never actually sold that many records because they were (nearly) history when being unkempt and sullen became fashionable in 1992. If Black's 'Debaser' and Deal's 'Gigantic' had appeared in 1994 when the world was crying out for someone to fill Kurt Cobain's cardigan they probably would've been huge. As it was that task fell to Green Day, but Deal's new band, The Breeders, scored a hit with 'Cannonball' and eventually this record went platinum.

So is this album any good, or was it just a success because this sort of thing was fashionable back then? Well, 'Cannonball' isn't as good as 'Gigantic' and there's lots sludgy noise and twiddling around that spoils the flow. Even a non musician like me wonders whether some of the tracks are actually finished. It sounds great though, and for every dull bit of filler there's a catchy hook and clever lyric to redress the balance. The wonderfully cool 'Summer is readdyyyyy when you arrrrre' chorus from 'Saints' especially sticks in my head.

But it's not as good as 'Planet of Sound'. And the massive success of the Pixies comeback shows that most people would agree.
