Complete 'B' Sides ~ Pixies
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
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.

This album, as one of the other reviews mentioned, is a definite grower. I thought it was a bit dull when I listened to it first but after a few listens the songs really began to reveal themselves. It's now probably my favorite Frank Black album. I don't think there's any "dogs" on it at all, which is a great achievement considering that it has 18 (!) tracks and was released the same day as Devil's Workshop (another great Frank Black album). If you're looking to get some solo Frank Black, this is a good place to start.
