Pretty much the most influential and important album in alt rock history with a varied and always so slightly different sound. Very consistent with some very very good tracks within.

I'm gonna be completely honest. I was slightly disappointed with this album. With just about every single critic (on this site and many others) praising this album to the high heavens, I was expecting this album to blow me away. And with it's short length of only 38 minutes, I was expecting to want to listen to it over and over again. But I guess my expectations were a little too high. The best way for me to describe this album is if you're listening all the way through the album, it's a fantastic and enjoyable experience, but there are several songs that aren't very enjoyable when you listen to them on their own. Another thing I noticed is that alot of the songs sound very similar (especially "Debaser" and "Wave Of Mutilation"). Overall, this is a fantastic album, but it's not perfect.

Best Songs: Here Comes Your Man, Debaser, Monkey Gone To Heaven, Tame

Worst Songs: Silver, Crackity Jones, Wave Of Mutilation

Album Grade: 95/100

I'll be honest at first I was not a big fan of them, Black Francis' vocals is an acquired taste.

Still, an amazing album from start to finish. The grudge scene would not be the same without them

A fantastic alternative rock record put out by the Pixies. Although it may be a bit hard to listen to at first, it grew on me over time.

Favorite Track: Monkey Gone to Heaven

I'm not convinced that this is brilliant like everyone else seems to be, it's certainly not a "minimalist masterpiece" like some reviews have stated. There are some great little tunes with memorable screams, but nothing is revolutionary here like the work of many Krautrock bands of the 70s. Despite the biblical or environmental references, little is profound or boundary-pushing. Plus, "Crackity Jones" displays a really awful attitude towards mental illness.

If you're looking for great 80s albums, Kate Bush is waiting for you.

Frank Black took everything that was recorded in a bathroom and barely listened by anyone, to a new level.
