Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pixies (Audio CD)
I waited nearly 20 years to get this album... I am collector but was first made aware of the pixies back in 1989 during my school days. I bought the pixies albums in the following order...
Doolittle / Come On Pilgrim / Surfer Rosa (1989)
Trompe le Monde (1991)
Wave Of Mutilation: The Very Best Of... (2005/6)
Pixies At The BBC / Death To The Pixies / Complete B Sides (2011)
then this one... simply called Pixies (or as it's now known as "The Purple Tape") (2013) For some reason my friends had told me that this album wasn't very good and that if I was going to buy it then I should only buy it for completing my collection. I have to say I see what they're talking about. It's got a couple good songs on it but a lot of filler. It's only 18 minutes long (which is shocking) and then add that some of the songs appear on other albums/releases.
I waited nearly 20 years for this... good job I bought used and new for a fraction of normal price as I'd feel even more cheated than I do now. That aside I've managed to complete my pixies collection so all is good! 3 stars due to album length. I wanted maybe about 35 minutes at least. but it's the pixies after all they don't do long songs very often.
