The album's slipping. That doesn't mean it doesn't leave an impression, quite the opposite. "Breeder", the second complete release of the quartet from Austin, Texas fascinates with a hypnotic sound. All tracks are overloaded with ingredients from every imaginable rock genre. If it sometimes sounds as if Siouxsie And The Banshees had passed away from a bulky Kate-Bush late work in her early phase, they still develop an incredible groove. With other sequences you think you can hear the Robert Plant of today. But no matter how complex a song may be, it is teeming with beautiful vocal and guitar melodies that seem to become independent and then circle in the listener's head. After that the classifications seem difficult, as well as the attempt to split the album fails. One needs leisure, time and strength for a second, third pass. Where there are other things to discover. For example, the clattering drums. The band name Boyfrndz is missing some letters, the sound of the band is complete and perfect, only one or two more comprehensible songs are missing, if the Boyfrndz system allows it.
