Overall, whilst it adds nothing much to the Pixies legacy, it certainly plugs the gap between then and the still-non-existent new album quite satisfactorily.
However, the law of diminishing returns performs no favours : "Club Date" is a more pedestrian offer. The set may be longer, and feature several later songs not on their other `reformation' DVD, it also feels a little boring. Like 2005's "SellOut" set, the Pixies perform a full set in one go, playing nothing but old songs to an adoring crowd. This time they are performed in a 200 capacity club, consisting of tight camerawork, unexceptional editing, and an overall perfunctory air of contractual obligation. The release is of a similar technical standard to the Acoustic Disc, but the extras (a 1 camera low grade VHS copy of the first filmed Pixies date, which is both depressingly poor quality and only 22 minutes long) are at best a novelty. The overall impression is - if you have any previous set from their reformation era - "Club Date" is superfluous at best, whilst "Acoustic In Newport" is an entertaining and interesting revision of past work.
