though this is a b-sides compilation, every song here is miles ahead of pixies' legions of imitators. even the ones that frank black doesn't rate (manta ray) are fantastic. dancing the manta ray and baileys walk are two of their most powerful moments, and the neil young covers are both excellent too. also worth checking out for the wilder version of river euphrates and the incredible slow version of wave of mutilation.

I think you can tell a lot about a band from their b sides, their chance to stretch out and experiment. This b sides collection just proves again what a great band the Pixies were.
It's a great collection and stands up to comparison with their albums. It has some pretty strange demented songs (Dance the mantra ray, In Heaven) but few do demented better than Frank Black. Into the White is also a great song, should have been on one of the albums.

If you're remotely into rock music of the early 90's then you'll love this. There's something on here for everyone: The subtelty of 'Wave of Mutilation' ... the energy of 'Build High' ... the classic rhythms of 'Winterlong'. It also definitely rewards repeat listening - something I've been unable to avoid :-)

Well, I recently discovered the Pixies and I wish i had found out about them sooner, they have influenced a thousand bands and quite frankly rock HARD. ;] Its great that they have included two videos, especially one to the unforgettable "Here Comes Your Man". No matter how heavy or soft you like your music, you WILL love the Pixies. 'nuff said ;]

As great a band as the Pixies were/are, the experience of listening to a proper Pixies album is where it's at for me, and this collection of random B-sides and live tracks isn't coherent enough for it to stand alongside their proper albums which have such a strong identity of their own. If you're a massive Pixies fan (and why wouldn't you be?) looking for any rare little gems you can pick up on, then of course you should dig into this and see what you can find. Personally, I really like Make Believe, and I love the closing track, the instrumental Letter to Memphis. I think it's killer. However, I couldn't advise much better than borrowing this album or listening to it online and cherry-picking the tracks that you want to add to your Pixies collection, because there are bound to be some here that you could do without (for the completists, I'm not sure why you're even reading my review - just click the "add to basket" button!).

IF EVER THERE WAS A TIME we needed bands like the Pixies, this is it. We all know how manufactured the music in the charts is, courtesy of the marketing men behind the scenes. How this band never hit the big time is frankly beyond me. Well actually, it isnt really. The Pixies were a band that the marketing men chose to pass on because they were just a little too real. Too difficult to put an angle on. Too ordinary looking. Maybe. But these songs are far from ordinary. The quality of these B-sides alone far outstrips anything similar in the charts today. Newcomers to the band will find this album very very accessible, particularly songs like Santo and Winterlong that will have you instantly hooked. In fact, I could have chosen virtually any of the songs to illustrate this point.
The two vids at the end of the album show how subversive (and truly entertaining at the same time) the Pixies were, particularly on 'Here Comes Your Man', where instead of the usual miming the band look blankly into the camera with their mouths wide open. The subject matter runs the gamut, covering such topics as skyscrapers, video game soundtracks, hitching rides on meteorites, suicidal Japanese businessmen, Debbie Gibson infatuations etc! No wonder MTV gave em the cold shoulder! ;)
The sleeve notes by Frank Black are also a nice touch, giving us an insight into this wonderful wonderful band.
If albums like this were common we'd all be dancin the manta ray... ;)

Now & then a band comes along who produce a plethora of good tracks.
The Pixies are one of those groups(I can only think of the WonderStuff & Wildhearts as others).
They end up on 12" EPs,you faithfully buy those singles on vinyl & some bright spark dispenses with a means of playing them!!
Thankfully,the Pixies have saved me a lot of bother by putting those odd essential songs together on one release(The 'Stuffies old record label cheekily sneaked the odd few B sides on the end of albums,meaning you'd need to re-buy their albums for 4 extra songs:Charming!)
Tracks 1,2,4,5,6,7,8 & 9 were regulars on my old turntable & it's superb to hear 'em again after all these years.
If you own either Doolittle & Surfa Rosa/Come On Pilgrim,you NEED this one to compliment them....
