Our early reviews are threadbare to say the least. In the spirit of remembering where we came from, we've left them as they were.

Bossanova Pixies

Album review by André Dack, Frederick O'Brien, and Andrew Bridge


Without the raw energy of Surfer Rosa and cohesiveness of Doolittle, Bossanova is simply a solid album from a remarkable band. By no means their best work, but an enjoyable listen nonetheless (even if a few tracks do drift by).

7 out of 10

Favourite tracks // All Over the World Cecilia Ann The Happening


I found a lot of Bossanova to be quite forgettable. There is a handful of good tracks, but the album as a whole fails to build up a head of steam. It isn’t bad by any means, though, and certainly merits a listen.

Favourite tracks // Havalina Is She Weird Cecilia Ann


Really my first proper introduction to Pixies and I really enjoyed it. If nothing else there are some amazingly catchy guitar riffs.
