About this album

Doolittle is the second studio album from the American alternative rock band Pixies, released in April 1989 on 4AD. The album’s offbeat and dark subject material, featuring references to surrealism, Biblical violence, torture and death, contrasts with the clean production sound achieved by the then newly hired producer Gil Norton. Along with Surfer Rosa, Doolittle is considered the band’s strongest work.

Doolittle has continued to sell consistently well in the nineteen years since its release, and in 1995 was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. The album has been cited as inspirational by many alternative artists, while numerous music publications have ranked it as one of the most influential albums ever. A 2003 poll of NME writers ranked Doolittle as the second greatest album of all time. Reaction to Doolittle was positive in general, with the album garnering praise from several major music publications. NME commented that “the songs on Doolittle have the power to make you literally jump out of your skin with excitement.” Q, giving the album four stars out of five, said that Doolittle’s “carefully structured noise and straightforward rhythmic insistence makes perfect sense.” Tim Rolston, of the Daily Telegraph praised Doolittle as “a scintillating rock’n’roll album” and the Pixies’ “finest half-hour so far.” Other publications also awarded the album four out of five stars, including the British music weekly Record Mirror, The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Los Angeles Times, and the Chicago Tribune.

    Looks like the haters answered the question, "do you have another opinion". This album has good songs on it, plain and simple.

    Much lamer and tamer than Surfer Rosa. Production can get on my nerves. Probably my least favorite of the 4, but still a good pop album.

    Average album. Shit compared to Surfer Rosa in every single way. Will never understand the appeal.

    'Ed Is Dead' is a different song from 'Dead'. The former is on Come on Pilgrim.
