5.0 out of 5 stars underrated pixies classic, 25 Mar. 2004
By 
This review is from: Bossanova (Audio CD)
When asked to name the best pixies album, people immediately jump to saying Doolitle or possibly surfa rosa. yet Bossanova certainly equals or evens beats them despite popular belief.
The album contains the same pixies formula. screeching, raw guitars, catchy choruses, and harsh vocals. What makes this album so good is the ability of Francis to combine the power and agressions of the songs with sweet and uplifting melodies. People accuse the pixies of softening on this album, yet even if this is the case it can be hardly descirbed as a bad case in evidence of the tracks displayed.
The energy is still there, at its most conventional on hang wire, dig fire and the superb stormy weather, but still present if released in a more restrained way on the incredible Velouria.
Whatever criticisms this album takes for being "lame", this albums confirms the god like status of the pixies as rock legends.
