Title: A review of the new Breeders album.
Post by: Jackie Blue on 28 Feb 2008, 21:43
Dear Kim Deal,

Suck my dick.  I don't mean that literally, like I would have a year or 10 or 15 ago, I mean, come the fuck on, sober up long enough to write a fucking song.  You should have just released Last Splash again with different cover art, because I would rather buy that.  Do not try to be experimental.  You're Kim fucking Deal.  Do not try to play guitar solos.  You're Kim fucking Deal.  Stick to quirky simple pop with retarded lyrics.  Don't try to be deep.  You're Kim fucking Deal.  Do not try to do creepy electrronic droning songs.  You're not Tricky.  You are, I repeat, Kim fucking Deal.

Also, what the fuck, Tanya Donnelly hasn't been relevant since before the last time you were, couldn't you have called her up, made nice, and let her on the album?  Or is Mountain Battles your Lady in the Water and I just don't get it, man?

The first song is awesome though.

Your pal,
Jackie.

PS - The last indie rock icon who wrote a song about video games was Liz Phair.  You don't want to be Liz Phair, do you?

I still will, but jeeze. What else is wrong with the thing?

You can disqualify this on grounds of "not 'rock' per se" but I think the point stands (http://www.songmeanings.net/lyric.php?lid=3530822107858586784).

That new Breeders isn't even done downloading and I already declare it the best thing ever.  Just because it comes out on my birthday and, fuck dude, it's the fucking Breeders.  I hope it is even 1/10 as awesome as Last Splash.

I know, what a total fucking disappointment.

It's completely ridiculous to assume an artist should pander to their audience's expectations. That is some genuinely sub-P4k nonsense right there.

I haven't heard the album but if it's not to my taste, who cares? I hope someone likes it. Plenty of other good albums out there.

Oh, Christ, tommy.  I was being humorous and honest.  If the album was good, I wouldn't care what it sounded like.  But it's not good, and I was addressing the reasons it is not good in an humorous way.

Last Splash sounded nothing like Pod and I love them both, so don't pull that card on me, buster.

Title TK didn't sound like either and it was really good. I didn't like that one at first either.

Give it time I guess.

There's an extraordinarily well shot Breeders doc from 2002 on youtube.

Title TK was a really sweet record. Give it another chance if it never clicked.
