One of the best albums of its day, Surfer Rosa finds Black Francis and co. in top form. Recorded by Steve Albini , it has a live energetic feel to it, like you were in the room with the band. Highly recommended

This album was the best record of it's time. Even the infamous kurt cobain said that it was probably his favourite record of the decade (1980). He also said that he had practically ripped off the pixies' Surfer Rosa album when writing the song that changed everything, smells like teen spirit. Personally this isn't my favourite pixies albums, but it's still amazing (just like every pixies album). The great bono once stated that the pixies were one of the greatest bands america has ever produced, and this album proves that he may well be right. With it's light verses and screaming choruses this is a must have for any music fan.

Pixies are probably the best band in the world so why would you not want to buy this album! Excellent

I first listened to this back when it was released in 1988 (yes 1988 not 98 amazon!) while spending 3 weeks driving around western Texas and New Mexico. Listening to it all those years later still evokes images of rod-straight blacktop vanishing into desert plains fringed by distant mountains and dusty old Southwestern towns. For me THE quintessential road trip album :)

My own favourite Pixies Album, by a whisker from Bossanova; the Pixies had nailed it by the time this album was recorded, and it sounds excellent on 180grm vinyl reissue.

Alt rock masterpieces don't sound or look any better than this.
