If there's one thing that 90s rock music does well, it's the loud, fuzzy guitar riff. Thanks again to Cobain for that one. "Debaser" kicks off Doolittle with one of the best of these riffs, the kind that you could imagine Pavement listening to and writing an entire album trying to out-fuzz the Pixies with. And then they top it with "Wave of Mutilation," a bar-raising feat that perhaps only Rage Against the Machine contested with "Bulls on Parade" as track two on Evil Empire.
But the Pixies and Doolittle aren't just for guitar lovers. They're too much fun to shout along with and pump your fist to and try to figure out what they're saying and whether singer Black Francis really "walked the sand with the crustaceans". Fuzz out, Pixies.
