It's hard to believe some Pixies fans might not have sailed with Frank when he unveiled this masterpiece in 1993, but for any who are new to either Frank or the Pixies, this is vital to your musical education. Pure joy from first to last. It's as if everything was leading up to it; an album that has mainsteam accessibility but with the most uniquely idiosyncratic lyrics imaginable.
Don't wait another moment. A neglected gem is before you. Buy it and spread the word.
No wonder Bowie rated Pixies so high - and there are flickers of the real 70s Bowie in this somewhere, without any Jobriath type aping. There are subtle moments of ethereal lift that the Pixies scattered throughout their best work. Hell, i don't even like what some earth people call Grunge - but this aint that. A 2nd cousin in a more developed country perhaps.
There are a generous amount of tracks (15)and this works against the album, diluting it somewhat. I believe that the age of the b-side passed a long time ago. We don't need no more b-sides dude - as if there wasn't enough music. I'm not complaining, i just think it hides the wonderfulness of the album behind quirky inoffensive musical exercise. Why do that, when 12 tracks would carry the project to the premier league? (Ok, release a b-side album for the fanatics if you like) - reduce the squad - you don't need the support team - mix the the metaphors and take away the scaffolding. More than well done Frank - i'll check out Teenager of the year next.
This terrific album makes me wonder why we give platforms to all the young indie bands with nothing to say.Read more ›
Quickly played it and was grabbed straight away by the energy and unusual riffs. Kept it for myself, downloaded it on iTunes and have been playing it ever since.
Am now hooked on Franks music and cannot get enough of it.
This is seriously good American Rock with great lyrics and deserves to be aired a lot more often.
Buy it and you will be rewarded with music by a great American artist.
Long live Frank Black!

If you liked the Pixies, and in particular, Trompe Le Monde, you will like this album. Its on a similar level to Teenager of the Year, but maybe slightly less adventurous; theres... Read morePublished on 18 Feb. 2001 by firstname.lastname@example.org
