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.

"Debaser," he shouts at the top of his lungs! Yes, indeed, I thought to myself the first time I heard this lyric. Frank Black really does have his finger on the pulse of society! In these ominous and dark lyrics Frank describes how everybody's dreams to grow up to become a musical poet will always be manipulated and obstructed to an extent that it would bring about a transformation in the actual basis on which these initial desires were built on in the first place. It is a dark and secret paraox, which you won't discover until it is too late. Luckily Frank Black was here to tell us before it became too late. There hasn't quite been a song like this since Lost In The Supermarket by The Clash.
But this isn't the only good song on the album, quite the contrary actually. The whole album is devoid of rubbish. Almost every song is at least half decent, and for an indie band, you will find a lot of the songs familiar. The reason for this is, that athough The Pixies weren't particually popular or affiliated with a major record label, they were simply too good to be ignored. It would have been absolutely criminal (or wrong) not to allow 'Hey' or 'Here Come's Your Man' it's share of time on the radio.
It's not possible for a human being to find enough superlatives to describe the greatness of this album! It is quite simply the greatest album of the 80s (will that do?).

Something happened in 1990... something horrible, but something none of us knows about. Whatever it was, the big record companies finally got bands to conform, and a great dumbing down has happened ever since. Some think Nirvana was a wild, original band, but their themes were dictated by committees and research groups, not a word out of place, not a note that doesn't conform to corporate america's idea of what rock music is. But, here you have it, with Pixies Doolittle... the last breath of originality, the last great rock album. Give this a listen, and compare it to anything made since... do you hear the joy in this album? the intellectual gears turning? the fun of just being alive and creating? Do you hear that in any album made since? no you don't... here is the last album made before the matrix of conformity blanketed the music industry. Buy this cd and remember... there was a place called earth, where people could have a vision, then put that vision out for the rest of the world to share... Doolittle hurtles itself into space as the last example of human freewill... this was rock and roll.
