Big fan, as you can probably tell from my username. (Also, awesome points for anyone who recognizes my avatar)
If I were to rank their albums (including Come On Pilgrim) it would go something like:
1. Doolittle
2. Surfer Rosa
3. Come On Pilgrim
4. Trompe le Monde
5. Bossanova

Explanation for the ranking: Doolittle and Surfer Rosa are my definite favourites, but the reason I put Doolittle the highest, is partly because I think it works better as a whole and that my average enjoyment of the tracks are a bit higher, I guess. I'm not altogether sure which one I like best out of Come On Pilgrim and Trompe le Monde, so I basically went with my gut feeling, but they could easily be put the other way around. Bossanova is decidedly my least favourite since it has a few tracks that I don't care for all too much, and none of the other albums has any.

Favourite songs overall (in no particular order):
Monkey Gone to Heaven
Where Is My Mind?
River Euphrates (An underrated song in their catalogue in my opinion)
Ed Is Dead
I Bleed
No. 13 Baby
Letter to Memphis

Best reunion song, sure.

EP2 was released last Friday. Might be more solid than EP1 but nothing that strikes me as awesome quite yet.

I'd love to see your signature/links too, but the huge and obnoxious ones have caused me to block all signatures.

Doolittle album, that's for sure a really splendid album.

Surfer Rosa > Doolittle


“The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well,
on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away
and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”

Really love the earlier Pixies stuff, up through Doolittle. I saw them on their first US tour, on the day Surfer Rosa was released. My top ten Pixies songs, in no particular order (except the first one) and subject to change:

I've Been Tired
Nimrod's Son
Levitate Me
Weird At My School
River Euphrates
Down To The Well (not the version on Bossanova)
Wave Of Mutilaton
Gouge Away
Ed Is Dead

I once owned all the studio albums, long before a reunion occurred, but ended up shedding them all apart from Doolittle. That album is almost perfect but the others are spotty at best.

Bossanova would be my (distant) second favourite and Trompe le Monde has the odd fine track.
