Translated from French to mean 'fool the world', 'Trompe Le Monde' showed Pixies still restless to push their sound forward. Recorded between Burbank, Paris, and London, with producer Gil Norton again at the controls, their fourth album is arguably their most playful, with Black Francis's lyrics on UFOs and conspiracy theories keeping things weird while power pop creeps in to amplify the space rock established on predecessor 'Bossanova'. Featuring singles 'Planet of Sound', 'Alec Eiffel', 'Letter to Memphis', and a flawless cover of The Jesus and Mary Chain's 'Head On', 'Trompe Le Monde' goes full throttle with 15 tracks coming in a quickfire 40-minute salvo.
