The Pixies' fourth and final studio album is a continuation of the band's always evolving sound. Released in 1991, Trompe le Monde focuses on singer/songwriter Black Francis's sci-fi fascination, complete with psychedelic sheen and atmospheric keyboards.

After the successes of Doolittle and Bossanova, and no longer defined by the rawness of Steve Albini's presence on Surfer Rosa, the band was free to explore new dimensions of sonic space. In keeping with the band's unique evolving sound, Trompe le Monde eschews the surf rock that dominated Bossanova for a more aggressive, revitalized sound.

Unlike previous records, the name comes from the title of a song and not a lyric. "Trompe le monde", a French phrase meaning "fool the world", is a play on the French phrase "trompe l'oeil", a painting technique in which the painter fools the viewer into thinking objects presented are real. But the Pixies weren't fooling anyone; Trompe le Monde is a triumph, an unequivocal swan song, as if the band had planned all along for this record to be their last.
