If Doolittle doesn't make your hair stand on end, check your pulse.

It's often super creative and original, if right at the edge of delusional. I must say that even giving high regards to most of the album ("Tame", "No. 13 Baby", "Debaser", "Crackity Jones") some of the songs are just genuinely awful. "Monkey Goes to Heaven" and "Hey" specifically. "Here Comes Your Man" is also tattering between catchy single and worst song ever written, with the result being somewhere in the middle.

Very original, very interesting, and surprisingly, very accessible - for some, I suppose.

Although I thoroughly enjoyed the second half too much of it seemed to be just noise for me to understand the hype

A few good songs, a lot of meaningless, hysteric noise... So this the best album of the 1980s... I see.

Good alternative rock album. Best 5 songs average is 81/100, so album can get 80/100. I'm a late listener of the album and at the moment I don't understand the hype around it. I find it contains only a few good/very good tracks. Maybe I have to listen it several times to get right into it?! But this you can do with many albums. Ok it's got definitely a special sound and it's quite many-faceted. However best song is "Here comes your man" 90/100, followed by "Monkey gone to heaven" 85/100 and next "La la love you" 80/100. All other songs average 65-75/100.

I'm sorry, but i really can't get into it.
I can appreciate it for influencing nirvana, but other than that, i don't really like it.

From kryptos006 11/11/2014 18:45
When I first listened to this album, I was both very attracted to its musicality and, at the same repelled by its harsh style. Finally, once I was able to see the style the Pixies were going for, any sort of repulsion was long gone. After hearing this album two or three times, I was hooked and for a solid two months I did nothing but listen to the Pixies' four albums (not Indie Cindy) and the Come On Pilgrim EP. I probably shouldn't admit this, but over the course of those two months, I listened to Doolittle 47 times, Surfer Rosa 39 times, Bossanova 27 times, Trompe Le Monde 19 times, and Come On Pilgrim 30 times (or so says my iPod play count). Pretty gross how much I listened to them, but they just weren't getting old.
