Absolutely. I’ve loved every one of their albums (Title TK was actually my favorite album of its year at the time... don’t care if that’s lame), but this is every bit as good and immediate and punchy and spacey and tactile and pummeling as anything else.

Is it fair to say the Breeders have surpassed the Pixies at this point? They have a smaller catalog for sure, but it’s more consistent by miles.

This was a pleasant surprise for a guy who’s never not anticipated a Breeders album for months in advance. I remembered it was coming only when Apple Music reminded me. Thank god.

I guess if you don't like the Pixies reunion albums, but I think Mountain Battles was probably weaker than any Pixies album.

But that's focusing on the wrong thing. All Nerve is great, and I can tell already there's 3 or 4 of the more off-centre tunes that will end up being my favourites in a few months

Yeah I do not like the Pixies reunion albums. Mountain Battles kills them. But yeah, doesn’t matter, new Breeders is great.

I acknowledge the majority of my sporadic posts here are Pixies related... but

Come On Pilgrim-Surfer Rosa-Doolittle-Bossanova-Trompe Le Monde-Frank Black ST-Teenager Of The Year

All happened within an 8 year span. Before the guy turned 30. That's not just better than Breeders (who are in my top 5 bands all time)... that's better than Bob Dylan.

Bob Dylan
Freewheelin Bob Dylan
The Times They Are A-Changin'
Another Side Of Bob Dylan
Bringing It All Back Home
Highway 61 Revisited
Blonde On Blonde
John Wesley Harding
Nashville Skyline
New Morning

All released before he was 30. I like Frank Black as much as the next man, but c'mon now.

Yeah, agreed.

Pixies’s track record is solid, but Bossa is half-crap, and Trompe is one-third crap. Dylan did better. Beatles did bette. Kane did better. Fugazi did better. Hell, Sonic Youth did better.

Love the Pixies, but let’s not go fucking crazy here.

I dunno, I don't find the debut or anything after Highway 61 anywhere near as compelling as that golden run from Freewheelin' onwards.

I'm not going to say anything outlandish, like they're 'half-crap' or something... but you get what I mean.

In any caae. New Breeders album. It's super super great.

Ok, maybe they’re only one-quarter crap each, but Bossa is NOT a perfect album, an it is not a Doolittle or Surfer Rosa-level album. Has some great goddamn songs, but also some terrible ones (“Hangwire” is pure filler nonsense).

Trompe is better as a whole, with fewer definitive songs. But dammit, this is not Dylan-level work. The Breeders’ album average is higher than ththe Pixies’. Five great albums vs. two great albums, two good albums, and two positively dreadful ones.

Math bruh.

(Not count Pixies excellent B-sides or BBC sessions or Purple Tape)

I think Surfer Rosa ALONE makes the argument for Pixies.

I think we speak an entirely different musical language.


Walking With a Killer is probably my favourite track so far. I love that they re did it with the full band. It reminds me of Iris from Pod. It just feels so inevitable and so right. Love love love it

Well we agree about this at least. I had a similar thought about “Iris.”
Also a few moments remind me of “Oh!”
