Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

For her second full-length Breeders album, Kim Deal jettisoned Tanya Donelly, brought in her sister Kelley as lead guitarist (despite the fact that she could barely play when she joined), and came up with a disc full of fun, toothsome rock, not least of which was the mammoth summer-of-'93 hit "Cannonball," a celebration of mosh-pit bounce and purred innuendo. Deal's voice is coy, but the band's full of dreamy energy, rocking like her old band the Pixies without their abrasion, tomboyish rather than macho. Not everything on Last Splash is fully fleshed out as a song, but even the more fragmentary pieces--the embittered punk mutter of "I Just Wanna Get Along," the horny daydream "Divine Hammer"--speed the album's flow. --Douglas Wolk

5.0 out of 5 stars thanks god for used record shops! May 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Okay, I admit it...I found this record on tape about 5 months ago at a record shop in L.A. It was 99 cents! I hadn't listened to the songs on this album, with the exception of "Cannonball" and "Divine Hammer" which were furiously played on KROQ, since the record came out in 1993. Big, big mistake. The songs on this record take you by the hand and make you feel like you are falling in love with someone, EVERYONE! "Invisible Man"...oh my god...any song with Kim's voice that uses the words "sweet caress...." I mean, come on! It is not unlike an aural aphrodisiac! The opening of "No Aloha" makes me crazy every time I hear it. The guitar slithers and slides it 's way into your brain so that it's all you can think about the entire day. Rarely does an album make you feel PHYSICALLY better....but if ever there was a record this is it! I have had to rewind the tape over and over again to just to hear the beginning of the song and since I feel I have gotten my initial 99 cents worth of rock, I am springing for the CD today! Musical masturbation for the obsessive -compulsive -manic -depressive -low self esteem having -yet somehow "cuter" when they listen to this record kinda vibe! Kim--you rule!

5.0 out of 5 stars Arty Collage of Sounds December 11, 2004
By Samhot
Format:Audio CD
The Breeders came onto the alternative rock scene back in 1993 with their inexplicably retro-sounding hit "Cannonball," yet seemed to fall into obscurity not too long afterwards. The band can, more or less, be referred to as a spin-off of The Pixies (lead singer and guitarist Kim Deal was a former member of aforementioned band), and on this 1993 outing, there seems to be more to the album than meets the eyes and ears.

In some ways, it would seem painfully fitting (or more specifically, understandable) that the hard-driving "Cannonball" would be the only major hit off the album (unless you count "Divine Hammer," which wasn't nearly as big), many of the tracks -- while highly diversified -- are strangely trippy, disjointed and underdeveloped, in other words, they seem more like short fragments, which seem to end abruptly...only to switch to an entirely different song (or rather, idea) altogether. This whole aspect may seem frustrating to many listeners, and understandably so, but when appreciated as something of an arty collage of sounds, as opposed to an album packed with "songs," the whole thing seems easier to swallow. Had I went into buying this album for the first time in 1993 with this mindset, it wouldn't have taken dozens of listens for me to finally start loving the album. But, as they say, the things that take time and effort to love, are the things that you usually end up loving for a lifetime.

Clocking in at 39 minutes, this album is an ever-fascinating smorgasbord of indie/post-punk, psychedelia, surf, grunge, and possible other things, which is packed with melody, charisma and a certain kind of wistful nostalgia; an indescribably pleasant, summery retro-feel is spiked throughout the diversified indie-rock musings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splash Indeed July 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Breeders have a unique style of music in my opinion, and this album LAST SPLASH is undoubtably one of my favorites, if not my favorite alternative album of the 90's. It's perfect, its infectuous and endearing, it's everything an album should be, and what I wish music was more like today. Most people know of the single "Cannonball", which has been used in many car commercials as a jingle, its a rare blend of spirited vocals and guitar riffs which make you want to rock out! "No Aloha" has a flair to it as well, with a unique guitar riff which gives the song a hawaiian type feel to it. "Saints" is a fun summer song, as the song says "Summer is ready when you are". The vocals of Kim truly bring the album to life with the excellent instrumentation of the band. Other right away highlights and songs to keep an ear out for are "Invisible Man", "Roi", "I Just Wanna Get Along", "Divine Hammer" and "Drivin On", but overall this is a truly great album that everyone should give a listen to!

5.0 out of 5 stars breeders pop perfection November 12, 2002
By "drumb"
Format:Audio CD
While Pod may have been the first official Breeders album, and was by no means a disappointment, Last Splash is perhaps more worthy of the title. Having now adequately distanced herself from the wonderfully seminal Pixies, Kim Deal finally sounds content to move on and craft a new sound that is uniquely her own. Shedding the Pixies shell and trademark Albini production, Last Splash replaces the subtle abrasiveness of Pod with full on metallic ferocity and the simplistically charming melodies with grandiose surf tinged art pop, signaling a great overall maturity in the Breeders sound that make them as viscerally powerful as the Melvins while still as intelligently catchy as the Beach Boys. The Breeders new style is only further enhanced by the addition of twin sister Kelley who frequently lends her lead guitar lines and charming backup voice to the mix. This said, the groundwork for Last Splash is laid allowing the Deal sisters' syrupy sweet vocals to dance delicately above the cacophonous riffs and melodic hooks of the dual guitars while the syncopated rhythm section plods along beneath them. This complicated collage that is Last Splash attempts to mix the pure pop of the Beatles with the thrashy pre-alt rock of the Stooges and succeeds at every turn. Proving consistent the entire way through time and time again, the feel good vibes of Last Splash are always rewarding and whether it's the carefully balanced noise of Roi or the soothing disconnected ballad of Mad Lucas, every song is sure to satisfy. A melding of pop and rock truly as seamless and enchanting as Last Splash only comes around once in a while, but when it does, the Breeders are sure to be behind it.
