These classic studio albums were re-mastered from the original tapes and are now available at a low midline price.
Before the Breeders and Frank Black, there was this Boston quartet, playing hardcore's rush and terseness against the acoustic grit and the minor-key flourish of Latin pop. Their first full-length album is their starkest, harsh and trebly, with the drums right in your face, and songs edited to eliminate any note that's not absolutely necessary. Singer Black Francis yelping away about destroyed bodies and the river Euphrates, alternately acting cryptic and crazed. Kim Deal, then calling herself "Mrs. John Murphy," contributes the highlight, "Gigantic," a creepy anthem about childhood voyeurism. The playing is snarly and tricky but unfailingly tuneful, and the hooks come out of nowhere, hiding behind the noise, and bite down hard. --Douglas Wolk
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
From the bombastic (and perfectly tuned, mic'ed, and recorded) drum intro of "Bone Machine," to the strange beauty of Gigantic, and the punk intensity of "Something Against You," to the snaking bass line and lyrical genius of "Cactus," this album is as huge in its span as it is in its sound.
Never again would the Pixies so much as attempt to match the grit and grime of this album, and that's probably for the best. But for all the nice production values of Bossanova and Trompe Le Monde, they never sounded better, and they surely never had a better album cover.
Actually if you tried listening to good music instead of Hanson, and if you were open-minded you would enjoy the greatness that are the Pixies. But instead you don't, so you make unintelligent, ignorant statements like the one you made above. I'm not going to waste any more time on you, I've got more important constructive things to do like listen to the Pixies. Go back listening to your precious Limp Bizkit (and stop saying you like Nine Inch Nails, a dumbarse like yourself is not fit to listen to great music like that so shut up poser) and sit in the corner like the child that you are.
Top international reviews
Bone Machine, traccia di apertura, Break My Body e Something Against You hanno il sapore sonicyouthiano (siamo nel 1988, era pre Nevermind, per intenderci), ma già con Gigantic e River Euphrates (la voce è di Mrs John Murphy) si delineano le sonorità che li caratterizzeranno. E poi quest'album contiene Where Is My Mind? (avete presente la scena finale del film Fight Club e i titoli di coda, ecco, proprio quel pezzo) che da solo vale il prezzo del biglietto.
Esiste anche la versione Deluxe dell'Album, contenente Come on Pilgrim, il loro primo EP.
I Pixies erano questo ma molto altro, Black e la sua esplosiva, espansiva, incontrollabile e gargantuelica voglia di creare musica, ha continuato a rilasciare album su album, i quattro lavori dei Pixies vanno considerati come i capisaldi del suo universo musicale. Da avere e custodire gelosamente.
