I’m a huge Pixies/Frank Black fan, but some of his newer stuff hasn’t been that great with the exception of “Dog in the Sand.” It’s nice to see his latest album, “Show Me Your Tears” getting good press from review from one of my favorite music sites.
I?m no Frank Black expert, but I know what I like. I like the sound of a band properly aping classic rock song structures, the vibe of an album recorded live, in the moment, and the scream of a grown man gone wild. Conveniently, Monsieur Noir and his merry band of papists meet all of the above prerequisites and then some on Show Me Your Tears, Frank?s sixth album with the Catholics and his fifth release this century.
Those of you wise enough to purchase this record should make sure to turn it up loud for the first listen so as to fully appreciate the bad-bitch theme song of an opener.
Hopefully this means Frank will come around to Philly again.
