Overall, this album is great. Honestly there really isn't anything about this album I can criticize other than the fact that it is undeniably overrated. But other than that, seriously awesome album.

From gabrielbeiner 10/15/2017 21:30
The definitive album from the band that created grunge. Black Francis' crazed vocals, Kim's amazing bass, and the heavy production strike the paradoxical balance between dismal and fun. The album takes you from the rebellious Debaser and strange combination of metal and no wave in I Bleed all the way to the country meets low fi in Silver and the biblical fury of Gouge Away. Along the way we transition from pop (Here Comes your Man) to post punk (Hey) to minimalism (There goes your gun). We encounter an old roommate (Crackity Jones), suicidal businessman (Wave of Mutilation), and the centerpiece addressing environmentalism and mortality of Monkey Gone to Heaven, and the criminally underrated Mr. Grieves. Overall a classic album and an undeniably great listen.

It's a good album but not a fantastic one in my opinion. Perhaps I've overplayed the record. Anyway "La La Love You" is unreal and "hey" plus the first 6/7 tracks are very good.

From badger 08/31/2017 11:35
The most infectiously disjointed, genius songwriting ever. The songs move in the most strange, comical fashion with off-piste lyrics to match and of course a dynamic approach that is loud-quiet but never soft and always just the right amount of harsh, like a fry-up of perfect crispiness.

Charmingly, all the duality of this recording feels like a hap-hazard accident, but it had already been done twice, I find it worthwhile to stick around for the more stadium ready space punk and tributes to French architects of later Pixies, even if Kim Deal was slowly and sadly being etched out of the picture, but for me Doolittle is where it's at.

Their best record all around. Very sleak production, the snare hits hard.
