Break-through single with excellent B-sides

""Cannonball" put indie Breeders on the commercial map, and while never mainstream, the song is very much a cult success--an unlikely, but deserved, crossover. Mixing intoxicating reverb and chants that sound like the palace guards from "The Wizard of Oz", the Breeders come up with a classy punk aesthetic. "Cro-Aloha" is a reworking of an album track and "900" is a decent low-key rock-drawl which didn't make the album "Last Splash". But the surprise is "Lord of the Thighs" which really shows off the Breeders' dark, wild side: rocking harder than anything on the album, it pinpoints the band's eagerness to be hook-heavy and yet resilient enough as hard rockers not to be too slick and refined. A gem: A+"
