October 1, 2004
It's been nine years since 1993, the year that The Breeders took over the world with their massive-selling album, Last Splash, and now we finally see their return with Title TK. It seems that on Title TK, front woman Kim Deal and her band have reached a point in their career where they have traded in their quest for continually breaking new ground in exchange for the focused effort of simply writing and playing good songs.

Title TK starts out in familiar Breeders fashion with the killer talking guitar hook on the impressive opener "Little Fury". The album then jumps from the fuzzy guitars of "London Song" to the charmingly slow "Off You" and on to the Blonde Redhead-styled sounds of "The She" before rounding home with the 1970's punk rock-tinged tracks of "Son Of Three" and "Huffer."

Although the songs on Title TK are not as memorable as past efforts, The Breeders still have both feet firmly stuck in planet rock. With the Deal sisters deceptively innocent vocals marking Title TK's territory, it's hard for fans of The Pixies, The Amps, Blonde Redhead, Sonic Youth and Joan Jett not to enjoy these songs.
