The Breeders are a strange band. Born when Kim Deal was on hiatus from her already successful band the Pixies, their first album "Pod" was met with cool commercial response, but enjoyed a positive underground buzz. After the Pixies split in 1993, Kim was left to pursue the Breeders full-time. Call it timing or luck, but the end of 1993 saw the breeders with a confirmed hit, the catchy and campy single "Cannonball". Soon the Breeders were all over MTV and the radio, and started opening for Nirvana. Those who bought the album just for the single may have been suprised at then albums depth, darkness, and complexity. Truly one of the best albums to come out of the early grunge movement, songs such as "No Aloha", and "Divine Hammer" showcase the bands' versatilty and musical diversity.Was this review helpful?
