My go to album for ambient. Seriously, love this album and goes to the top of the list.

..and the best tracks from the others, including The Amps. I assume everyone agrees Kim Deal is some sort of savant genius? Does anyone not appreciate how unbelievably good she is?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure everyone feels this way and always will. I haven't listened to the Pixies in ages, and they almost never cross my mind. But when they do, I think of Kim's smoky, ageless voice. It's what made them great. Frank's banshee shrieks and warped mind and Joey's meandering leads were definitely part of what made them good. But Kim pushed them over the top.

Can't have the Pixies without Kim Deal. I don't know or care what they're doing these days, but there's nothing Pixies about it.

And Pod is better than at least half the Pixies records. Gotta love Mountain Battles too, and even Title Tk, but Pod is just perfect.

Cool. Whatever she added to the Pixies, her post-Pixies stuff seems to me more important, because it fully reveals a writing voice just as singular as Frank's. Her brain is fascinating. Her chord progressions can get really goofy and her lyrics are insane, but it all makes catchy sense. She's nuts enough to think of this stuff in her head, but level enough to get it out into the world. Sometimes. One of a kind. Rock n' roll HOF material!

I remember when I picked this up, right after it came out, in 1990. I picked it up on the strength of a review I'd read in some local Virginia Beach underground rag--and knowing that it was Deal's project. It blew me away. I'd been a huge Pixies fan, got into Doolittle, the year before, and I thought that could not be topped. This came out, and it got some attention from the underground press back then, but not nearly as much as I thought it deserved.

Lovely.

There is an admirably achieved, and barely submerged, sensation of malevolent evil resonating within the grooves of several of these songs.

Yes, it´s the best song of that album. As an album I liked little bit more Gliding Bird, but I think I have to give more listens to Elite Hotel. Going to listen her latest outputs, I really love her vocals in Caves & Ellises Lawless-soundtrack.

Yes! I really love his Sunshine Superman, Mellow Yellow & Hurdy Gurdy Man -albums. And also the hippie a Gift From a Flower to a Garden (one of the first double-albums, well I think Zappa´s Freak Out! is the first. Or Dylan´s Blonde On Blonde?). Almost all songs in that compilation seem to be from those albums.

Are you guys serious? This is out of my sense of humour or then I am just so old-fashioned.
