Bossanova by Pixies

'Bossanova' is the third proper full length album from indie outfit Pixies, the legendary band from Boston who made some great records back when I was a lad. To try and follow up the triple whammy of 'Come On Pilgrim', 'Surfer Rosa' and 'Doolittle' is quite a daunting and challenging task, but they managed to shape a great record which stands out with its sci-fi themes and surf rock guitars. Features 'Dig For Fire', 'Allison' and 'Velouria'.

9/10 Jack 22nd October 2015

While Surfer Rosa is probably their most 'well-known' and Doolittle regarded as one of their best pieces, I find Bossanova to keep up with both of those albums in nearly every way. Cecilia Ann is a fun instrumental that always gets my hyped up, Rock Music is a hard-rocking and energetic screamer, Velouria is a classic made known by Weezer, Is She Weird is a fun song, but my favourite part of the album are the melodies wrapped up in the songs like Alison, Havalina, Stormy Weather and Down to the Well.
