Editors’ Notes

The Pixies’ second album really shows us what they’re capable of. “Debaser” roars out the gate like an impatient bull. “Wave of Mutilation” sneaks a catchy melody past Kim Deal’s snarling bass and the swirling mass of electric guitars. Pop hooks move upfront for the Merseybeat-gone-mad “Here Comes Your Man”. And Black Francis and Kim Deal combine their unusual voices to create joy and tension on “Monkey Gone to Heaven”. Throughout Doolittle, the band's ambition is relentless.

Customer Reviews

My Monkey Went to Heaven

In mid 1989 my wife miscarried our first child. Desolate, I came home alone from the hospital and in automatic mode absentmindedly turned on the TV. A band was playing a song called Monkey Gone To Heaven and I was introduced to the painful world of the Pixies. Part of me still lives there.

Here comes your man (and he's got an amazing album with him!!)

It's very rare for a band to produce such an amazing debut, in this case Surfer Rosa, and follow it up with such a superb effort as Doolittle. Every song is a Punk-Pop masterpiece in its own right. See where Nirvana ripped off the "loudQUIETloudQUIET" technique on tracks like Tame.

5 stars is not enough for this album

How come there aren't hundreds of reviews of this album. This truely is a classic from start to finish. Ask for your money back if you disagree. Refreshing now from the first chord to the last strike of a note as it was when I bought it on vinyl on it's day of release. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. It'll be the best £8 you spend on iTunes I promise!

Combining jagged, roaring guitars and stop-start dynamics with melodic pop hooks, intertwining male-female harmonies, and evocative, cryptic lyrics, the Pixies were one of the most influential American alternative rock bands of the late '80s. They weren't accomplished musicians — Black Francis wailed and bashed out chords while Joey Santiago's lead guitar squealed out spirals of noise. But the bandmembers were inventive, rabid rock fans who turned conventions inside out, melding punk and indie...
