Yeah, man. It is definitely good. You say this like you're somehow ashamed to admit it or something. Have you been hanging out with a bunch of assholes who have forked themselves into thinking that the only "pure" Pixies albums are Come on pilgrim -> Doolittle?

It's true that the band did some serious re-arranging of priorities after Doolittle. For one thing, the illusion of the band being something approximating a democracy lost a lot of its value, and having everything the band wrote feel like an extension of Francis alone became super important. So Bossa and Trompe feel less and less like Pixies albums, and increasingly like what would become "Frank Black." But who fuckin cares bro?

I for one enjoy the Beatlesque feel of the first few releases, BBC sessions, and B-Sides. I like the banshee howl of Black Francis better than the more compressed Hüsker Dü tael scream of the emerging Frank Black. But still, Trompe Le Monde is a goddamn classic and everyone who's anyone knows it.

As an album, it kicks the shit out of Bossanova (and Indie Cindy), even if Bossa has a couple tracks that Trompe can't top. Of the two, it's just simply the better album. It plays more seamlessly from beginning to end, and it fucking rocks, where Bossa takes lengthy detours into meandering, directionless nonsense.

Don't feel like your opinion is somehow invalid just because it might be less popular than other opinions. At least Trompe Le Monde features all four Pixies. It's not like saying that Where You Been is your favorite Dinosaur jr album.... (this would still be totally acceptable since the album is technically a "Dinosaur jr" record, even though it has fuckall to do with the original line-up, and plays more like a Mascis solo project)... So you're davorite Pixies album happens to be the one that history frowns upon the most. So what? Fuck history. "Letter to Memphis," "Alex Eiffel," "The Sad Punk," "Motorway to Roswell".... fuck it, every song on that album is pure nostalgic power-Pop on PCP.

Man, my favorite Sonic Youth album was A Thousand Leaves for years. I caught tons of shit for that, but I stood my ground because I'm the biggest SY fan I've ever encountered IRL, and I'll be damned if I'm going to be lectured on cultural relevance by some pitchfork-thumping little shit-nose who bases his opinion on arbitrary lists thrown together by a bunch of people just like him.

Well fuck them! Sgt. Peoper is not the best BEATLES album by a goddamn long shot. Revolver and Rubber Soul have it topped, and the White Album reigns above it like a god would reign over an illegitimate Titan with a learning disability.

And Ascension is better than Blue Train. As is My Favorite Things.

Oh, and A Ghost is Born is, like, immeasurably better than Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Just my opinion.

Down with the status quo.

Trompe Le Monde is the hardest rocking Pixies album. I love it. Alec Eiffel? Olympus Mons? Motorway to Roswell? HEAD ON? awesomeness./

im more of a Doolittle guy. Trompe is good too. they should play "Letter to Memphis" on any rock station at least once a day. but that wasn't the way the universe was built.

The Pixies are probably the most mediocre bands ever. They have a couple of quite good songs.

if I had to choose I honestly say At The BBC was my fav. If I had to choose studio album, I guess Surfer Rosa. But honestly, every Pixies album is excellent for diff reasons and that's what made them a great band to me.

More like "extremely correct toilet and bowels."
This band is not that great all. And I heard them from day one. Seeing them become a "touchstone" in the years since is extremely baffling.

The music aged poorly.also the vocals were always irritating, as was the production.

the production is fine and is the music. modern for the 80's but/and timeless for right now.

ATL is fantastic. One of the few SY releases I actually managed to snag on vinyl. Contre Le Sexism is one of the band's worst songs though - such an atrocious start to a masterful album. If anyone here would like to explain the appeal of that track, in hopes of me growing an appreciation for it, I'd be extremely grateful.

And yes Trompe Le Monde rules. I never really listen to the pixies though. Still a chill ass band
