- When the CD repeats in the car player, you can't tell that it happened because the first song sounds just like the last one.
- The new stuff only reminds you of how great the old stuff is.
I've got one Breeders recording which was vinyl-only, at least at the time of its release — the Head to Toe EP, so I digitized that just before I left for vacation. It was the last thing they released before Title TK, and the difference in feel is dramatic. (But not songwriting, this is just four covers.) “Saints,” with its refrain of “summer is ready when you are,” is a great meeting of sunny pop and punk attitude, and their version of Guided By Voices' “Shocker In Gloomtown” is a great compressed pop gem with manic backing and some of the thickest bass sound I've heard outside dance music and reggae. It's got all the fun and distinctive yet inviting attitude that Title TK sorely lacks.
