great starter for the new fan,
This review is from: Wave of Mutilation - The Best of the Pixies (Audio CD)
Well i just wish i'd listened to this band yesteryear in there prime but sometimes things just avoid you. I bought this cos they were talked of as better than Nirvana by quite alot of people i knew so i gave this a whirl to see what the main hits were like. The answer was OUTSTANDING and i have since backlogged and filed up my Pixies catalogue. I just need some B-sides. My thoughts are that some great songs aren't on this best of cd which i usually find with my favourite bands. You buy the big hits but find some brilliant underplayed songs. My favourite album is Doolittle but it isn't head and shoulders above everything else by the Pixies such is rhe quality from this band. They now sit proudly amongst my favourite bands and musicians of all time.
