EDITORS’ NOTES

The Breeders’ music is a ball of little contrasts: beautiful but rough, off-hand but confident, spacey but tactile, lived-in—an unfamiliar object knit from yarn. The group's first album with a fully reunited lineup from their breakthrough LP, Last Splash, finds them back on their private path, balancing rave-ups (“Nervous Mary,” “Wait in the Car”) with heavy-lidded ballads (“All Nerve,” “Dawn: Making an Effort”) and blasts of noise with girlish harmonies, gently pushing the familiar garage-band template in new directions. As always, their ace remains an ability to elevate naiveté to mysterious, almost supernatural levels—just listen to “Walking With the Killer.”

It's Been a Long Time Coming

Rushing home from school in the 80s and 90s to catch my favorite videos on MTV is something I can still feel to this day with great excitement when I hear certain bands. The Breeders are one of those bands. Cannonball seemed other worldly to me. I've loved all output since but this has been a very very long time coming. To me it is already a 5. Who knows how it will play out. I cannot wait.

What the hell is this?

Was really looking forward to this and honestly can't get excited even after a few listens. Songs just drone on and are forgettable.

What a gift!

I now fully understand why Kurt Cobain appreciated the breeders like he did. This is truly a gift, track 2 took me back and dropped me off in the middle of high school in the 90’s. The soul in the 2 mins of track 2 is a gift to us all and I’m truly grateful.
