4.0 out of 5 stars From death Nirvana was born, 28 July 2006
This review is from: Death To The Pixies (Audio CD)
Like Van Gough, many bands dont get the recognition they deserve, but hey presto! when they split or die they become cool and everyone begins to say they were influenced by them. The Pixies are such an act, during their 4 year existence from 1987 to 1991 (in which this compilation covers) they were mostly ignored but they did manage to create a new sound that would become grunge (Kurt Cobain was a big fan). This compilation is an excellent introduction to this inovative band; containing no filler, the songs compiled here are tight 4 minute wonders such as U-Mass and Bone Machine. Each song going down a completely different path to the last. If there is one fault, the pace does not change and there is often a lack of subtlety in the songwriting which results in in a collection of very different but one-dimensional songs but this is a minor niggle as the quality is so strong.
