The Pixies' fifth and final studio album (to date) was Trompe Le Monde, released in September 1991.

Boasting a bigger, vaguely psychedelic sound - thanks in part to Captain Beefheart keyboardist Eric Drew Feldman - this underrated set was by turns anthemic (space/time travel saga ‘Planet Of Sound’), explosive (The Jesus & Mary Chain cover ‘Head On’), sardonic (‘U-Mass’, ‘Subbacultcha’) and oddly poignant (‘The Sad Punk’).

Trompe Le Monde crashed into the UK Top Ten, though curiously it stalled at 92 in the States.
