I remember buying this on cassette at Tape World at the Auburn Mall in the fall of 1989, my senior year in High School. My friend Allyson drove and somehow I convinced her to play the cassette that I bought, not the ones that she or the love of her life had purchased that evening. From the bassline that starts Debaser we were blown away from then on the only sound in the car for the entire 60 minute ride home came from the speakers. If you don't have it yet, don't tell anyone, just buy it.

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.

I'm always surprised at how few people have listened to the Pixies. Kurt Cobain freely admitted that he was a fan of the band and their loud quiet loud approach. Doolittle is a combination of punk, pop, and haunting melodies. It's exciting and action packed, but the songs are much more than rants or ballads. There's so much going on in the rhythm section.

Black Francis is into space, UFOs, and thinks that music is like math. He's absolutely right. The seemingly chaotic sound of the Pixies still has a precise structure.

The first three songs grab you immediately. Debaser starts with Kim Deal's base, and that's a big part of the Pixies' sound. Francis delivers the lyrics with venom, and it's intensified on Track 2, Tame, which is contention for the title of the band's best track.

Wave of Mutilation completely changes the mood and allows you to catch your breath, and Francis switches to atmospheric mode. Such a versatile vocalist. Monkey Gone to Heaven is perhaps the most famous Pixies song, and it's full of harmonies and epic guitar.

Many of the songs sound mystical, as if they are reaching toward something important. They simply soar. How can you not love the vocals on No. 13 Baby, or Hey, or the haunting (there's that word again) closer, Gouge Away. Yep, Doolittle is a brilliant album. The only weak track is La La Love You, sung by drummer David Lovering, but I'll forgive him because of his work on the remainder of the album.

Ask anyone who knows their stuff and chances are, they got at least one Pixies album in their collection. I don't care if you like Iron Maiden, Sonic Youth, Peter Frampton, Jimi Hendrix, Yngwie Malsteem, Minor Threat, Fugazi, Slayer, Joy Division, NIN, Beach Boys or The Cure. The Pixies are just too damn good not to get into.
The striking thing is, "Doolittle" doesn't have a song that sucks or lacks character. Frank Black still up to this day has one of the most chameleon-styled voices ever. "Wave of Mutliation" pretty much covers a wide variety of grunge in all it's charming likeness where "Hey" bounces, oozing with dark humor. "Debaser", the opening song served as a template for many post modern hard rock acts to follow. "Monkey Gone to Heaven" and "No.13 Baby" were inspiring anthems for a generation of listeners who wanted something more than all the ho-hum mainstream music of the 80's. Kim Deal's voice compliments Black's tenor almost effortlessly in "Silver".
There is a particular reason, listener keep coming back and why people are now just getting to know who the heck this great band was. They forever shaped the music to come in the 90's, yes Kurt Cobain, the SUPPOSE icon of late 20th century music even admitted it. "Surfer Rosa" and "Trompe Le Monde" are both excellent listens, but "Doolittle" capitivates the most distinguished sound of the Pixies.
It's just too hard to not think of these guys without thinking of this one. Please, put aside Good Charlotte, Linkin Park, Simple Plan, Yellowcard, The White Stripes, The Darkness and listen to a band worth knowing about. Then again, who the hell am I kidding, no one ever listens to these things.
