Being very satisfied with Mobile Fidelity's release of Pixies first three LPs, I've been hoping this would be released one day. Well, here it is! Beautiful packaging as expect, great music, extra.

Now all they have to release is Come On Pilgrim EP...

I love this album so much.... I am a new pixies fan so I never heard them in the normal order. This was the first one I heard and I loved it so I got Bossanova.. loved that one then I got Doolittle.. loved it.. so on down to Come on Pilgrim. Only now I relized I bought them in the opposite order :) But still overall I love this album the most. If you are lucky enough to see them on tour I highly recommend it.. they were amazing even though they only played 2 or 3 songs from TLM..

Are you squeamish? If one glance at the eyeballs on the cover of this record makes your stomach a bit nervous, then perhaps Trompe Le Monde isn't the safest place for you to swim.
The Pixies are perhaps best known for their excellent dance-punk-pop-grunge record Doolittle. The album's anthem, Debaser, and the poppier, happy-go-lucky-seeming Here Comes Your Man quickly win even the reluctant newcomers over. In terms of the Pixies' catalogue, Doolittle is easy listening. If Doolittle is the suburbs (which is a stretch, and no offense meant as I have only the most intense, burining respect for the Pixies cataloge as a whole) then Trompe Le Monde is just north of downtown, where most of the cars are pieced together with duct tape and nobody will walk at night. Things are just as messed up (well, perhaps a bit more messed up), but downtown they don't gloss it over. They don't cut their lawns, and uncollected newspapers rot in the bushes. Things are a little harder to look at here.
The first song, the title track, is very indicative of the record's sound and lyrics. On preliminary listens, the snippets of lyrics that can be easily discerned seem ridiculous ("go little record go/it is named by/some guy named joe). But what's ridiculous and what's not is entirely up to Black Francis in this case--after all, we take his screaming about french dogs seriously, don't we? Upon further investigation, the absurdity melts into a gorgeous, fractured imagery of the lost and the hunted.
Upon first listening to Trompe Le Monde, I was surprised at how reminescent it was of the Jesus and Mary Chain's Automatic--even without the cover of Head On, the two albums would have a lot in common.

Heck, it's one of my favorite albums, period. Hard to believe that after the first time I listened to this album ten years ago, I thought it was a joke. Honestly. It all just sounded so...wrong. It seriously crossed my mind that, knowing they were breaking up, decided to release an intentionally horrible, sonically stupid record, just to see if people would say they like it cuz it's the Pixies.
Well, like many incredible albums, this one took a while to grow on me. Today, it's one of my top 10. I can't understand how so many fans don't count this one as being in the same leauge as Surfer and Doolittle. Yes, Kim Deal seems to be less involved, and as much as I always thought her voice was their secret weapon, the songs are just too good to hold that against them.
I will agree that if you're new to the band, start with one of the earlier CDs first. This album is, to me, like a graduate course for Pixie fans. Once you've heard their other music (all great, mind you), you can handle this one. Perhaps I took the course too early, which accounted for my initial dislike.

I'll defy conventional wisdom right here by saying that each Pixies album was better than the one before. This, being the last, was the best in my opinion. For a band known for constant innovation, here they really pushed the boundaries of the rock song as far as they (or FB, if you really believe that this was "his" album) could. In a way, "Doolittle" was the pinnacle of the Pixies sound, so I can understand the praise heaped upon it. How could they possibly improve upon perfection? Well, they didn't- they just continued the progression of their sound. Things were toned down a bit for "Bossanova" (more subdued but equally enthralling) and then turned back up for this! On the first couple listens it might sound like endless screaming, and metallic guitar tones, chugging away in a thousand different directions. But underneath this abrasive surface, one will eventually notice sharp hooks around every corner, and extremely inventive and complex melodies. Highlights include "Alec Eiffel", "Palace Of the Brine" and "Subbacultcha" but really it's best listened to as a whole. The relentless pace of the album is frequently peppered with absolutely sublime moments, making it a unique and rewarding listening experience. Pehaps it's greatest achievement is it's unholy marriage of "riff-oriented" song structures that give way to more fluid and sprawling melodic refrains that get stuck in your head for.... well, forever. "Surfer Rosa" and "Doolittle" may be the undisputed masterpeices, but "Trompe Le Monde" stands alone as their most difficult and audacious creation.
