Biography

Beloved and enigmatic, influential and proudly difficult to categorize, the Pixies made a triumphant return in 2004 following an eleven-year hiatus. The celebrated band wowed both fans and critics at performances around the world and continued for seven years. For all those years, fans clamored for more and it remained uncertain as to whether or not the Pixies would ever record again. Until ... Read more in Amazon's Pixies Store

Just thought I'd add a note, quite a few of the songs on Death to the Pixies are slighlty different to the original album versions such as gigantic, velouria...this is because the pixies were made to make 2 recordings of the songs, one for the album and 1 for the single release. The record label made them do it so people would buy their albums and their singles! Hope this info comes in handy when coming to choose if you want to buy this album or not! Its a great album.

Producing a relevant track list for any band's 'Best of...' album is troublesome, but for a band as eclectic, turbulent and melodic as the Pixies, it becomes an almost impossible task. Throughout their career, the Pixies have had a powerful influence on popular music, with many bands adopting their bitter-sweet Spanish-tinged pop-rock (David Bowie famously claimed Nirvana's 'Nevermind' was a complete rip-off of the Pixies style). So how do you begin compiling a seminal collection?
The 17 tracks that make up 'Death to the Pixies' span their career from 1987 to 1991, and their 5 studio albums are all represented. It would be easy for me to list tracks that I felt should have been included, but as a single CD it holds together quite well.
A cover of the Surftones' 'Cecilia Ann' kicks the album off, and throughout the next 16 tracks we are treated to such classics as the surf-inspired 'Here Comes Your Man', the manic 'Debaser', Kim Deal's trance-like bass playing on 'Gigantic', and the haunting 'Where is my Mind?'
There is no ultra-rare, never-before-heard track to entice those who've already bought all the released albums, although some may wish to purchase it for the marginally enhanced audio.
I would recommend 'Doolittle' or 'Surfa Rosa/Come on Pilgrim' as anybody's first Pixies album, however 'Death to the Pixies' serves as a well-structured look at the career of one of the most revered bands of the past 20 years.

Forget all the pompous retro-drivel you constantly read about The Pixies. Put to one side the fact that music journalists insist on giving them jingoisitic and meaningless labels such as "seminal", "influential", "groundbreaking" or whatever - in simple terms, this is a compilation of some of the finest rock songs you will ever come across.
You want loud - Planet of Sound
You want melodic - Digging for Fire
You want powerful - Debaser
You want soulful - Caribou
Every constituent part of what makes outstanding rock music is evident in abundance throughout the entirety of this album, with all those elements magnificently distilled in to one or two standout tracks that demand to be hailed as simply awesome - Tame, for instance, deserves to be considered one of the most significant tracks (I hesitate to call it a song given the grossly distorted quality of Charles's vocals...!) of the last twenty five years.
If you have to raise the funds to purchase this album by selling every other CD or piece of vinyl you have ever owned, do it - everything else just pales into insignificance by comparison.

I am not an old school Pixies fan. I first borrowed this CD off a friend last year having noticed that magazines such as NME continuously referred to the band as 'the most influencial..'. I was also going through a Nirvana phase and read that Teen Spirit was supposed to be a rip off of The Pixies. I don't normally like songs the first time I hear them but as soon as I played Debaser I left it on repeat for the next week. It was, and still is, the best and most perfect song i have ever heard. Tracks like Wave of Mutillation eased me into their harsh, yet orderly and in a different way catchy music. I soon realised that every song on this record, whilst all sounding completely different, is absolutely brilliant. I have personal favourites of Gouge Away, Holiday Song and Monkey Gone to Heaven - but yours will be different. If you have never heard of the Pixies and to do already possess Doolittle, Surfer Rosa or the other three equally brilliant albums, you are missing out. If you consider yourself a music fan buy this album. If you are a Pixies fan, try to catch Frank Black and the Catholics live. If you get to meet him, Kim, Joey or David beg them to reform.

An incredible compilation from the most influential and intelligent band of their generation. All these songs are masterpieces of beautiful lyrics sung with a feeling not matched before or since and soaring intense music to die for. Velouria is a particular favourite of mine although being a bit pop it is pop rock to perfection. This is a rare cd where every song deserves your full attention and never becomes old, no other cd i know can hold my concentration for its duration and make me think that it lasted just a second, having me beg for it to all start again.
Many of the pixies classic songs are not on this, but there isn't room for them all, the selection has been criticised by some but I don't envy the person who had to choose which songs to include and i think they did the best job possible. This is the perfect starting point to begin your exploration of the pixies full range of musical genius. Once listened to there is one thing for sure you will be glad you begged, stole or borrowed or even sold your soul to get this cd, you will never look at music in the same way. God bless the Pixies, the world will never tire of their twisted view on reality, it is after all closer to the truth than many bands have got.
