Product Description

Product Description

Doolittle (1989) - Retaining the urgency of their previous excursions, yet expanding their musical parameters, Doolittle is regarded by many as their most caustic, and their most beautiful. Key cuts ‘Hey’, ‘Monkey Gone To Heaven’, ‘Tame’, ‘Gouge Away’, ‘Wave of Mutilation’, ‘Debaser’ and ‘Here Comes Your Man’ became instant anthems the world over.

Yeah, Kim Deal made a big splash of her own, and Frank Black is still holding his own. But as any Pixies fan will tell you, and as Doolittle suggests (like "ten million pounds of sludge" to the head), the Pixies rocked harder than the sum of their parts. They were masters of dynamics (check out "Monkey Gone to Heaven," or "Hey"), moving from quietly subdued to all-out head-banging and back before you could say "la la love you." Black Francis was one of the most unique vocal stylists of the '80s. His duets with bassist Deal, "I Bleed" and "Silver," work the way Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong worked together. And it's still staggering how much Joey Santiago, lead guitarist, could accomplish with one simple, single note. "Here Comes Your Man," by the way, is as straightforwardly poppy as the Pixies ever got, so enjoy it. --Dan Leone --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Wow. I started off with Surfer Rosa, but the day I bought Doolittle, my life changed forever, and I became a diehard Pixies fan, as did everybody in my family. Now I've passed this round my friends a bit, and each and every one of them have all ended up loving it to bits, and quite rightly. Because this album is purely superb.
Debaser - a brilliant opener. Amazingly catchy, everyone will be singing 'un chien andalusia' in seconds! 9.5/10
Tame - not as brilliant as its predecessor, but still pretty damn good! 9/10
Wave Of Mutilation - One of my favourites on the album. A fantastic song 10/10
I Bleed - Lovely harmonies, an all-round great choon. 10/10
Here Comes Your Man - The song that got me into the Pixies, and I still love it today. 10/10
Dead - Slightly weaker than those surrounding it, but all the same, it's good! 8/10
Monkey Gone To Heaven - Superb. Just superb. What a masterpiece of a song. 10/10
Mr. Grieves - A weird song, unusually catchy. 8.5/10
Crackity Jones - A partyish song, I wanna jump about when I hear this! 9.5/10
La La Love You - A really pretty song. I like this song more and more as I hear it. 10/10
No. 13 Baby - A really cool song, but not one of the strongest on the album. 8.5/10
There Goes My Gun - I really really like this one, one of my favourites on the album. 10/10
Hey - A really really pretty song. 9.8/10
Silver - Probably the weakest song on the album. 7/10
Gouge Away - My utter favourite. A fantastic song. 20/10
So please, I really urge you to buy it. It's not just an album, its an investment and an explanation of self-discovery.

The Pixies defined alternative rock before it was hip the most experimental band 0f 80's early 90's. This album & Surfer Rosa inspired & influenced a fresh faced young talented kid from Seattle at the time early 90's to write a little album called Nevermind maybe you heard of this, Kurt Cobain. Seriously one of the most unique experimental albums. This is their best by far every track kicks. Debaser I play over & over again best track on CD such a catchy tune. You can't define Pixies sound its so original Black Francis (Frank Black)aka voice is melodic & rage at sametime if thats possible with Kim Deals melodic undertones. Debaser, Monkey Gone to Heaven, Bleed, & Wave of Mutilation standout tunes. Pick this album up its a must if you value real altern. music. One of my top 5 albums all time. Put it this way this album came out in 1989 and it still holds up todays sounds. Essential album to have in collection Doolittle's sound is unlike any other it truly beats to the sound of its own drum and left of center.

After 1988's brilliant but abrasive Surfer Rosa, the Pixies' sound couldn't get much more extreme. Their Elektra debut, Doolittle, reins in the noise in favor of pop songcraft and accessibility. Producer Gil Norton's sonic sheen adds some polish, but Black Francis' tighter songwriting focuses the group's attack. Doolittle's most ferocious moments, like "Dead," a visceral retelling of David and Bathsheba's affair -- are more stylized than the group's past outbursts. Meanwhile, their poppy side surfaces on the irresistible single "Here Comes Your Man" and the sweetly surreal love song "La La Love You." The Pixies' arty, noisy weirdness mix with just enough hooks to produce gleefully demented singles like "Debaser," -- inspired by Bunuel's classic surrealist short Un Chien Andalou -- and "Wave of Mutilation," their surfy ode to driving a car into the sea. Though Doolittle's sound is cleaner and smoother than the Pixies' earlier albums, there are still plenty of weird, abrasive vignettes: the blankly psychotic "There Goes My Gun," "Crackity Jones," a song about a crazy roommate Francis had in Puerto Rico, and the nihilistic finale "Gouge Away." Meanwhile, "Tame," and "I Bleed" continue the Pixies' penchant for cryptic kink. But the album doesn't just refine the Pixies' sound; they also expand their range on the brooding, wannabe spaghetti western theme "Silver" and the strangely theatrical "Mr. Grieves." "Hey" and "Monkey Gone to Heaven," on the other hand, stretch Francis' lyrical horizons: "Monkey"'s elliptical environmentalism and "Hey"'s twisted longing are the Pixies' versions of message songs and romantic ballads.Read more ›

Although my favourite Pixies album is Trompe Le Monde (those who claim that this album is bad just don't understand it)and Surfer Rosa is my second favourite, I still find Doolittle an enjoyable experience. I would regard it as an equal to Bossanova. Opener, Debaser, is a great adrenaline packed blast of punk-pop energy. Tame and Wave Of Mutilation are both great songs. I don't really dig I Bleed but I'm sure others may like it. Here Comes Your Man has a nice melody. Dead is one of my favourite songs, it's cool. Lets see.....I don't really dig Monkey Gone To Heaven but most Pixies fans seem to like it so you might too. Mr.Grieves and Crackity Jones are both cool songs. La La Love You is really brilliant. Drummer, David Lovering, delivers a great vocal performace. The album ends with a handful of great songs : Number 13 Baby, the interesting Silver, the brilliant guitar-work of Joey Santiago on Hey, the great chorus on There Goes My Gun and of course the rock masterpiece that is Gouge Away. I really think you'd dig this album if you bought it. In fact, I think you'd dig any Pixies album, except maybe Trompe Le Monde which only appeals to certain people. Thank you for your time.
