It beats me why Doolittle, an album of such ferocious intensity and top-quality songwriting is always forgotten in those ubiquitous "Top 100 Album" lists run by any number of websites. Quite frankly it is the greatest alt-rock album ever created, crammed full of powerful rock songs and gentler melodies. Black Francis's voice - primal and terrifying on songs such as "Tame" and gentle and welcoming on "Wave Of Mutilation" - duels with Joey Santiago's angular guitar lines to great effect, creating a totally unique sound. Pixies are one of those bands who have no discernable influences. They sound like nothing else you will have heard, but for this review's sake I'll try to make some comparisons. The quiet/loud dynamic they pioneered really makes itself known here, turning "Gouge Away" from a quiet, sinister whisper into a massively loud roar of anger and making "Tame" one of the most unsettling songs yet recorded.
Any die-hard Pixies fan will already have this in their collection, but for anyone looking to get into this amazing band, "Doolittle" is a great place to start. It has the combination of poppy melody ("La La Love You", "Here Comes Your Man"), indie guitar anthems ("Debaser", "Wave Of Mutilation") and freaky scream-alongs ("Tame", "Crackity Jones") that will ease you gently into the world of the Pixies without scaring you off. You might not like some songs at first but give it time and within a couple of months you'll be utterly addicted.

This is one of the best albums ever made, one of those rare albums where every track is killer, one of those rare albums where you think how the hell can an artist record perfection like this. I cannot recommend this enough. This isn't just a 5 star album it is musical genius. Fact. If you want to buy a Pixies album, this is the one. If you want to buy an alternative rock album this is the one. Infact, if you are a serious fan of music then this should already be in your collection. The likes of Nirvana's Nevermind and other so called masterpieces of this genre cannot hold a candle to Pixies Dolittle.

sometimes its the originals that are forgotten. the bands who created the scene only to leave it for other immitators. (stone roses pathing the way for oasis)
The Pixies were undeniably classic. Their punk/grunge/rock genre spawned many rip-offs. Kurt Cobain even admitted he copied the quiet loud dynamics of the pixies. sadly it was Nirvana who undeserevedly got all the aclaim and credit.

But they and many others never came close to matching the pixies. Doolittle is easily their best album. A must for any music fan, espically those who like heavy yet melodic tunes. The pixies formula was simple. Screeching/agonising singing over memorable riffs and choruses.
Take Debaser for example. The repeated barred chords with Black screaming (elegently though and with dignity) is brilliant. simple but so effective. Here comes your man is another classic. The riff is infectious and it is a warm and touching song.
The list goes on for great songs on this album. If you haven't already got this buy it and see what you are missing out on.

Ten years on and its hard too believe this album is as fresh and as powerful as it was the first time I heard it. From Black Francis hysterical vocals on Debaser through to the bass driven Gouge away, the album simply never falters.Here comes your man and Monkey gone to heaven wander towards the mainstream without losing the albums plot, but the overall feel of the album is still one of awesome originality. It says a lot that some advertising exec somewhere looking for a suitably manic track to push an "out of the ordinary" Vodka promo on the telly, didn't look to the modern crop of Rock mediocrities, but instead picked "Tame", a track penned some ten years ago by a band who for the brief period in the eighties and nineties set some pretty incredible, and still, unparalleled standards. Death to the Pixies indeed.

After knowing of the Pixies for many years I've never really listened to their music properly. I obviously, as a lot of people, heard the song Where is my Mind?'on the Fight Club film and from there I bought the Wave of Mutilation best of CD and really loved a huge majority of the songs on it. Now I have purchased Doolittle and also Surfa Rosa.

Doolittle is an amazing sounding album, which is one of the things I love about the Pixies, it's just got a sound unlike any other band out there. They are fantastically raw and all of the instruments are just sublime to listen to! The songs all run in a similar vain sound wise (not a bad thing by the way!) yet sound extremely individual which is another thing that is attracting me to them so much!

I really recommend this band and this album. If I could describe this album and them in one word it would be 'Flawless'.

It is nice these days to see Pixies getting the wider recognition for the impact they had in bringing underground rock to the mainstream, but the most important point about the band is that their music still sounds absolutely brilliant.

`Doolittle' is Pixies best regarded and most famous album and rightly so. Fifteen tracks of thrilling surf-pop-punk fly by in just under 40 minutes, delivered in the band's unique style. Black Francis's vocals range from yelps, gibbers, cackles, croons and downright screams as he delivers his gleefully manic schlock-horror lyrics; Joey Santiago's dazzling lead guitar whines, snarls and crackles with energy; Kim Deal's tight bass is high in the mix and her laconic backing vocals also provide the perfect foil to Francis's mentalism and David Lovering's ferociously tight drumming drives everything on at an incredible pace.

It is not an exaggeration to say that all the tracks are great, but personal highlights are the howling blast of `Tame' which steps into the glorious `Wave of Mutilation' in a heartbeat; also "Here Comes Your Man's' twangy pop; the demented eco-fable `Monkey Gone to Heaven' and the stunning opening and closing tracks `Debaser and `Gouge Away'.

The famous quiet/loud dynamic that Nirvana cheerfully confessed to trying to replicate with `Teen Spirit' pervades the whole record and gives it its power and energy, but ultimately a pop heart (albeit a mental one) beats strong in the wonderful `Doolittle', surly one of the best rock albums of the last 20 years.
