Frock rock four - Breeders produce another


DESPITE The Breeders track record and evident pedigree, the 1993 hit single Cannonball continues to be a weighty millstone around Kim Deal's neck.
Despite a promising start, Mountain Battles never recreates the form shown on Last Splash or in the band members's other projects The Pixies and Throwing Muses.
Not that The Breeders are ready to be put out to grass just yet – tracks like Bang On, Istanbul and No Way demonstrate that there's plenty of worth in Mountain Battles, and followers of The Breeders will be satisfied at what is an increasingly rare outing for the group.

There's just too many disappointments in between holding the album back for the casual listener.
