I don't think they're overrated.
Pixies are just different, they influenced the greatest rock bands we know. You have to understand their style and their lyrics if you want to appreciate them.

Very slightly overrated, but not much. I'd definitely keep them in the Top 30 bands.

One of the few bands I've ever heard where there's not a single song I would toss away. As much as I love the Beatles, they had their fair share of filler (that's what happens when you give Ringo songs).
