  • Summary: A comeback of sorts, 'Title TK' comes a full nine years after The Breeders' previous effort (1993's 'Last Splash') and sees the group with a new lineup (only Kim Deal and sister Kelley remain) and producer (Steve Albini).
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 14 out of 19
  2. Negative: 0 out of 19
  1. Skeletal, fragmented, stumblebum, Kim and Kelley retain their knack for righting themselves with a tuneburst just when you thought they'd never do the limbo again.
  2. It blends the stripped-down sounds of Pod and the Amps' Pacer into a collection of strangely intimate, feminine garage rock.
  3. It's the sound of experimentation working, it's what what the second Elastica album should have sounded like, and it's a compelling story unfolding, with many more interesting twists still to come.
  4. 70
    The tight, buzzing guitars and chugging rhythm section have been deconstructed--subdued, even. [#54, p.78]
  5. Not necessarily a fantastic album then, but a great excuse for a record, nonetheless.
  6. The thrill evaporates as one monotonous tune drones into the next. [24 May 2002, p.94]
  7. Title TK comes off as unglued in an almost perversely restrained, even uneventful way.
