Why listen to something ten times in order to understand its beauty!? In my personal experience the best albums of all time take a while to get acquired to and get keep getting better just when you thought you worked all the details out. I would listen to this album 100 times (not that I haven't already) in hopes to "understand" what a fantastic album this is.

In the past year, I have listened to Surfer Rosa much more. However, Doolittle still remains my favorite Pixies album for its Surfer Rosa-gone-to-art-school status. The quip about Man/Devil/God were the most clever lyrics I've heard from Frank Black.

Fantastic album. I didn't like it on the first 2 listens, but the acclaim it gets on this site is there for a reason and so I kept trying and eventually on the 4th, I got it. Sublime.

Loved it when it came out but since then, it has lost the ability to hold my interest. Maybe i heard it too much... Maybe it just did not hold up over time.

Because Surfer Rosa's more of an immediate album, I forget how amazing of a follow up this was.

You could listen to this album ten times and not get it, then all of a sudden, you see the beauty in it.

Good but vastly overrated to me. Got some great stand out tracks but does not sound like a classic to me. Just never been a massive pixies fan. Good but not great.
