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.

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.

I made the mistake of sleeping on this album for too long. Make no mistake this album is fantastic. I recently saw the Pixies live and they played 75% of the album because it has their best songs. Paul Rudd even sings the title track in This Is 40 so what else are you waiting for? Listen to it.

There isn't anything to say about this album that hasn't been said a thousand times before. The best adjective I could use to describe it would be "insane."

Hey, listen to this album, because it is telling you right now to. Are you psychopathic? Just maybe this album is, also because of the fact it's talking to you... genuinely amazing.

This is THE album good either for psychopaths-lovers as for beach-songs lovers. Everyone MUST love this album, right?

The more I come back to this album, the more I'm convinced of its lauded brilliance. Seriously. It's so close to cracking my top 100. Gosh. This is just such a terrific album.
