Come On Pilgrim (1987) - This eight-track mini-album was the Pixies’ gritty, violent, and chaotic first offering to the world. Come On Pilgrim features classic Pixies staples including ‘Nimrod’s Son’, ‘The Holiday Song’, and ‘Caribou’.
When they first hit the underground scene with this debut album, the Pixies were like an exotic drink that hid its sweetness behind a ferocious bite. The album's production is like a crude explosion: every strum and clang comes down with the subtlety of a sledgehammer. English and Spanish lyrics collide as singer Black Francis (later Frank Black) shouts in a hoarse monotone and Mrs. John Murphy (later Kim Deal of the Breeders) backs him up with throaty wails. Yet somehow the clash of these bruising titans makes for tracks that print indelibly upon your consciousness--once let in. Kurt Cobain is their most famous student. He grafted the Pixies' time-honoured craft of the big bang theory onto Nirvana's biggest hits. (You start with a quiet verse and then explode for catharsis in the chorus--evidenced best here with "I've Been Fired".) The Pixies themselves have served quietly, attaining post-punk godfather status not by tooting their own horns but through the praise of a steady stream of genuflecting admirers whose word of mouth continues to increase the band's deserved critical standing. --Rob O'Connor --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I'll keep it short and sweet. You like the Pixies? You buy this album. The End.Published on Sept. 21 2003 by Kt
This is a great CD. The Pixies were a watershed band and this EP lays the blueprint for everything they were to do later. Read morePublished on Aug. 23 2003 by scooob

I love this EP and "Surfer Rosa", so I got both on the twofer import. I suggest you do the same. You'll want both anyhow. Read morePublished on April 15 2003 by Erroneous
I think if this was a full length album my head would probably explode with excitement and pure ecstacy. Read morePublished on June 16 2002 by Chris Putrino
Bought this when it first came out on the 4AD label and it blew my mind! Had the fortune of seeing the Pixies and the Throwing Muses on the same bill at the I-Beam in the late 80s.Published on Dec 3 2001
