Das Album von 1989. Frank Black und Co. strotzen vor Energie, bei aller, kunstvoller Lärmentwicklung gelingt aber auch noch der eine oder andere Hook, den man als daherwalzenden, aufgepumpten rumpelnden Pop bezeichnen könnte. Das Album kann man auch in 20 Jahren noch mit staunen über sich ergehen lassen. Expressive Rock-Juwelen für Jüngere und jünger Gebliebene - hübsch abseits vom breiten Strom des Durchschnitts. Zur Beruhigung: Auch Celli schmeicheln den Hörern. Hits: "Debaser", "Wave Of Mutilation", "Here Comes Your Man", "Monkey Gone To Heaven".


“After 1988þs brilliant but abrasive Surfer Rosa, the Pixiesþ sound couldnþt get much more extreme. Their Elektra debut Doolittle, reigns in the noise in favor of pop songcraft and accessibility. Producer Gil Nortonþs sonic sheen adds some polish, but Black Francisþ tighter songwriting focuses the groupþs attack. Doolittleþs most ferocious moments, like "Dead," a visceral retelling of David and Bathshebaþs affair --are more stylized than the groupþs past outbursts. Meanwhile, their poppy side surfaces on the irresistible single "Here Comes Your Man" and the sweetly surreal love song "La La Love You." The Pixiesþ arty, noisy weirdness mix with just enough hooks to produce gleefully demented singles like "Debaser," -- inspired by Bunuelþs classic surrealist short Un Chien Andalou – and "Wave of Mutilation," their surfy ode to driving a car into the sea. Though Doolittleþs sound is cleaner and smoother than the Pixiesþ earlier albums, there are still plenty of weird, abrasive vignettes: the blankly psychotic "There Goes My Gun," "Crackity Jones," a song about a crazy roommate Francis had in Puerto Rico, and the nihilistic finale "Gouge Away." Meanwhile, "Tame," and "I Bleed" continue the Pixiesþ penchant for cryptic kink. But the album doesnþt just refine the Pixiesþ soun

they also expand their range on the brooding, wannabe spaghetti western theme ûûSilverûû and the strangely theatrical ûûMr. Grieves.ûû ûûHeyûû and ûûMonkey Gone to Heaven,ûû on the other hand, stretch Francisþ lyrical horizons: ûûMonkeyûûþs elliptical environmentalism and ûûHeyûûþs twisted longing are the Pixiesþ versions of message songs and romantic ballads. Their most accessible album, Doolittleþs wide-ranging moods and sounds make it one of their most eclectic and ambitious. A fun, freaky alternative to most other late-þ80s college rock, itþs easy to see why the album made the Pixies into underground rock stars.”(All Music Guide)
