It took 10 years for me to "get" Trompe Le Monde, but when I did, I realised that this work of celestial genius could well be the Pixies' best. Their previous albums are faultless, but TLM distills all the various elements that made up their sound, reinterprets them yet again, and blows your mind with its creativity and energy.
It's definitely an album that needs time to sink in, but it will reward the effort thanks to layer after layer of imaginative songwriting and incredible musicianship from all four members of the band. There is such subtlety and detail in the drumming and the bass lines that you can listen over and over and discover new sounds each time.
Apart from the Pixies, I cannot think of a band that invests so much energy into their songs. The first six songs just belt out a relentless stream of Pixie noise, but it's impossible not to scream along with these catchy songs, with a huge grin on your face.
Love it.

The Pixies were an unusual band. They have been named as one of the most influential bands of all time yet, like the Beatles, no one actually honestly sounds like they did. A unique prospect, many would argue. And this album came at the end of their natural life, in 1991 - the same year as Kurt Cobain's Nevermind - and again showed the world what a few misfits and geeks from MIT in Boston, Mass. could do with some guitars, a penchant for Spanish and aliens, and the most frantic frontman of the era.

Songs as strong as 'Alec Eiffel' (a song about the designer of the Eiffel tower - 'He thought big and they called it a phallic little eiffel'), 'Bird Dream of the Olympus Mons' ( a song about the highest mountain/volcano in the Solar System, found on Mars) and 'Motorway to Roswell' ( a song about an alien) cannot help but make this album one of the most amazing slices of punk-fuzz-pop ever heard, and I would recommend it heartily.

Trompe le Monde is an aquired taste. Everyone's first Guiness tastes...well...afull, but matures to be exquisite. TLM goes beyond this sensation; it dazzles. An early NME journo accurately described it as 'a wall of noise with pockets of genius'. There are moments of appaling musical grime but, emerging from the ruins, come melody to which even John & Paul would nod their approval. Persevere, and this album will make your vocal chords strain as you sing 'Palace of the Brine' on the way home from work. History will shine most brightly on Trompe le Monde.

Over the past years it seems the pixies are always mentioned as "very influential" etc. Yet many critics simply wrote(and continue to write off) trompe le monde as the weakest album. It is my humble opinion that anyone who actually listens to this album will be impressed beyond recognition. Who gives a toss if Charles/Frank/Black(or whatever else he decides to call himself) sings about UFOs and Mexicans, the end result is pure genius resulting in an extremely gifted songwriter approaching the peak of his career. At the end of it all I defy anyone to knock someone who can pull off singing a line like "oh alexander i see you beneath the archway of aerodynamics".

Although not as well recieved as earlier pixies Albums, Trompe le Monde delivers the goods in my opinion, perhaps it was just that the pattern had been established at this stage and fans (and maybe even the band) wanted more progression. For all that there are some killer tracks on Trompe Le Monde and it's a little gem in itself that's often overlooked by the overplayed Dolittle.

Surfer Rosa will remain a classic, but Trompe Le Monde completes a logical progression through the Pixies material. It takes everything just one stage further (to '11', in Spinal Tap terms!). This is more rock. It's more sci-fi. It's more surf. It's just more PIXIES.
A split after this makes artistic sense, if not monetary. This is the Pixies formula pushed to the max. Love it.

The best album from one of the greatest guitar bands ever. Every single track is excellent, but it would be worth getting for 'Subbacultcha' alone. Everybody talks about their influence on Nirvana, but the Pixies blow Kurt and chums out of the water. An essential piece of plastic; buy it.

For me, this is the pixies best album, combining the raw energy of surfer rosa and come on pilgrim with the melodic stylings of doolittle and bossanova. There are no slow points, no weak links, it's all pure unadulterated joy. Try this little trick and spin it.
