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.

Doolittle love it all! Surfa rosa is listenable and some great tracks and the rest of the albums I haven't listened to yet but for the amount of albums they have, I don't think I'd have them in my top 20 artists. I'd say definitely top 40 just on those albums alone, maybe top 30.
