I think the Pixies are for everyone. The vocals might put some off at first, but don't give up. You're strong enough if you believe you are.

I'm not sure mixing The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, the two most loved bands in the world, is THE most apt comparison, but essentially that's sort of what you're getting, no? Like The Beatles, the Pixies can be delightfully melodic and have comparably sweet lyrics, and like the Stones they can be brash and energetic and will shake your grandma to her core. Who wouldn't want both?

Just as importantly, like both these bands, the Pixies are immediately listenable (unless you need some practice with the vocals - I myself eased into them nicely after a few years of Against Me!-listening). There's something to be said for a band whose music appeals right away to the senses you were born with, with zero fooling around. (Am I saying you need the aid of drugs to enjoy bands like Zeppelin and Floyd and etc. as much as their fans seem to? Yes. Yes I am.)

Listen: If I want to go from misty-eyed over something beautiful to smiling my head off to surfing a wave of adrenaline, all within an album (within all 4 of the O.G.'s, actually), there's only one band I trust. There are artists who can hit those key emotions [my keys, of course] as acutely, but you're probably going to need three separate artists, and no one else I've heard strikes them as often or has a discography as balanced between them as the Pixies. So long live 'em.

Doolittle is a great album. The rest have some great singles, but just are lacking where Doolittle shines. Important band, but I think they are a little overrated in the sense that they have some really good material and then some really under par material.

The creators of Nirvana, but Pixies were better, and were first.

Some bands are at their peak before their time to shine. While the Pixies were never truly appreciated for what they were at their peak, they are now recognized as some of the greatest alternative rock musicians of them all. Doolittle is consistently great from beginning to end, and any rock fan needs it in their library.
