Planet of Sound...Show # 305

The Pixies album Trompe Le Monde was originally released in 1991. The albums title translates into "Fool The World" in English, this would also be the last full length album before the bands split. The album was well received on UK and US charts. Trompe Le Monde featured many notable tracks, drawing on science fiction based themes involving aliens ("Planet of Sound", "Motorway To Roswell"), and other songs such as "Alec Eiffel", "U-Mass", and "Trompe Le Mode". The songs contained elements of the bands past influences and a new direction involving Pop elements. Many people feel that the album is essentially the first Black Francis solo album, due to the fact that he wrote all of the songs except for one. "Head On" which is also featured on the album is a cover of a song originally done by Jesus & The Mary Chain. The Pixies reunited in 2004.

The write ups have been shorter as of late. Maybe not next week, but there will be some longer posts coming up in the future.
