The first Pixies album to break into the Billboards Top 100 (peaking at 98)
was a more mature sound for the band. By this time they have perfected their pop
hooks that get stuck in your ear while they reel you in with the rest of their
music. Acclaimed by many critics as the best Pixies album around, this is a
critics’ “must have” for any serious listener of Rock ‘n Roll.
"Kurt Cobain himself acknowledged the Pixies' influence on the soft/loud dynamic that powered "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Doolittle is a mix of the band's earlier hardcore storms, Black Francis' self-described "stream of unconsciousness" rants and the strange melodicism that flowered in his Frank Black solo records." - www.rollingstone.com
"Numerology, sludge in the ocean, a hole in the sky — what's it all supposed to mean? Said Francis (a.k.a. Frank Black), 'The phrase 'monkey gone to heaven' just sounds neat.' Norton [producer] cleaned up the band's sound, adding the eerie strings, but the Pixies didn't bother to try for pop appeal. Said Francis, 'It wasn't like we thought we'd get played on the radio.'" - Rolling Stone
