Breeders : 10
...a very moving (and quiet) record indeed...
If there's an overt influence, then it's of The For Carnation, on whose excellent 1999 album Kim Deal appeared in a low-key role. Here on '10' atmosphere is all, and while no-one could realistically claim to have been grabbed by the scruff of their neck by the infectious tune, this is nonetheless a very moving (and quiet) record indeed.
