I'm not convinced that this is brilliant like everyone else seems to be, it's certainly not a "minimalist masterpiece" like some reviews have stated. There are some great little tunes with memorable screams, but nothing is revolutionary here like the work of many Krautrock bands of the 70s. Despite the biblical or environmental references, little is profound or boundary-pushing. Plus, "Crackity Jones" displays a really awful attitude towards mental illness.

If you're looking for great 80s albums, Kate Bush is waiting for you.

Frank Black took everything that was recorded in a bathroom and barely listened by anyone, to a new level.

It's interesting to me that for an album that is relatively difficult listening in places, this one has become an uncontroversial classic. That's because, behind Black Francis's maniacal screaming and Kim Deal's keening, there are great melodies, memorable (and often hilarious) production flourishes, and clever songwriting. As A.A. Dowd of the Onion's A.V. Club incomparably expressed it, "Doolittle marries psychotic gibberish to sunny surf-rock hooks." My favorites here are "Hey," "Here Comes Your Man," and of course, "Monkey Gone to Heaven."

Good album. Surprising how accessible it is. Nice pop/rock songs, nothing too taxing and challenging and certainly an enjoyable listen.

A really cool album with a lot of short tracks. "Doolittle" influenced the whole 90's musical history.

Liked this album a lot more than Surfer Rosa, but still very confused by its ranking as the best album of the 80s. The 80s might not have been the strongest decade in music, but this still doesn't seem like a "best of the decade" sort of album. "Monkey Gone to Heaven" is a really great song, and "Here Comes Your Man" is good, but unlike the former track, it doesn't seem to fit with the album. "Hey" and "Debaser" are also good, but a couple of the songs, like "Silver", "Crackity Jones", "La La Love You", and a couple others do nothing for me.

Doolittle is a fantastic taste-test. Pure alt-cool, slicing up eyeballs and debasing the general public for nearly three decades. Your mom hates it and that's more than OK.
