Pixies

I've always heard some many good things about them but never actually got to get into this band. Any suggestions on where I should start? What to buy? Thanks in advance!

Surfer Rosa and Doolittle

(though Wave of Mutilation: the best of . . . is a great best of.)

Bossanova has some good songs on it (Velouria! ), but Doolittle is better as a whole.

Do not start with anything other than Doolittle. Surfer Rose is perhaps a bit too abrasive for beginners, Bossanova might bore you out of ever trying anything else, and Trompe La Monde, while great, is to homogenic to serve as a primer.

Doolittle, Doolittle, Doolittle. One of the greatest albums ever recorded.

Come On Pilgrim is 20-something minutes of brilliance

For some reason Bossanova always felt like such a summery album to me. I love playing it once the weather gets warm again after winter.

I am certainly in the minority as far as the whole fanbase goes, but I much prefer Bossanova and Trompe le Monde to their earlier records. They're not just rehashes of Come on Pilgrim, which I think most of Surfer Rosa and maybe half of Doolittle are. Bossanova and Trompe are extremely solid albums, and definitely shouldn't be missed if you want to get into Pixies.

Also, my screen name.

Doolittle!!! Quite possibly, the album of the 80´s.
