Pixies is one of my favorite bands, this band has inspired many other great bands such as Nirvana, Daughters and even Hip-Hop crew like De La Soul. Their best album is by far "Doolittle", all by itself this album is a best-of of the band. The fifteen titles are masterpieces. For me, it remains the best album of alternative rock and noise rock. This album has not aged, it is always great between violence and cool attitude, beetween "Debaser" and "Gouge Away", Pixies have managed to create a timeless classic. Frank Black is one of the greatest genius of rock ... "Doolittle" is the perfect rock album, a classics composed only of hits that will never be forgotten.

10/10

Best track: "Debaser"

I give a +5 for this album for the extreme Importance that It had in it's time. This album is for america what The Stone Roses was for britain: New. It inspired so much, and so much came from It afterwards, you can blame the existence and popular sucess of several bands beacause of Pixies and their groundbreaking sound, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Pavement, just to name a few. Having that said, I personally prefer those bands that I mentioned (especially Pumpkins and Nirvana) over Pixies in any form, but I don't deny the Importance of this album and this band in general, and some of their songs like "Debaser", "Here Comes Your Man" and "Where is My Mind?" are absolute bangers.

The peak of Indie rock. This and Slanted & Enchanted are the definitions of imperfect perfectness. The Pixies Greatest hits compilation.
Favorites: Monkey Gone to Heaven, Tame, Gouge Away, Debaser

An OK album, some good/great tracks, but not the 19th best album of all time, not even close.

Personal Favorites Have to be Tame, Monkey Gone to Heaven and Gouge Away. This whole album though represents the Pixies creative peak.

I like "Monkey Gone to Heaven" and "Gouge Away" and I knew these songs before I listened to "Doolittle" for the first time. I can't share the love for the complete album because 80 % of "Doolittle" sounds for me just like a wall of noise and the audio quality is terrible. Nevertheless I bought Frank Blacks "Teenager Of The Year" a few years later and think it was quite OK.

Just great post punk. Better than most of the post punk that gets an insane amount of adoration from music critics.

An absolutlely, unquestionably essential record in the scope of alternative music. I dig it more for the indivdual tracks, especially the singles, but it's impossible to deny how good Doolittle is. Right from those opening bass notes on Debaser, the energy and quality never dips even once. One of the most satisfying, joyous and well crafted albums we've ever been graced with.
