I agree with some of the reviewers that a number of the selections for the compilation-of-the-studio-albums CD are questionable. The last two studio albums, Bossanova and Trompe le Monde, while good, are inferior to the outstanding first three Come on Pilgrim, Surfer Rosa, and Doolittle so the compilation may have been improved by cutting one or two of the five songs from the last two albums and replacing them with selections from the first three.
Still, this is a good compilation CD with lots of great songs including many of the Pixies' very best. The Pixies had so many great songs in their all-too-short career that a compilation limited to 17 songs would necessarily suffer from grevious omissions. As for the second disk - a live set apparently recorded sometime around the release of Bossanova - this CD is worth the hefty price tag by itself.
Many fine Pixies songs not included in the first disk are included here making the package a truly fine overall greatest hits collection. The performances here are exhilarating. The disk has a number of similarly driving sequences that are interspersed among milder numbers. Other highlights of this terrific disk are Into the White with Deal's breathy vocals, driving bass lines, and Santiago's punctuating guitar; better versions of Dead and Crackity Jones than on Doolittle; the propulsive but dreamy Gigantic, and the weary melancholia of Gouge Away and Where Is My Mind.
But, the whole disk is great marred only by the inclusion of one of Bossanova's clunkers, Hang Wire. If you're already a Pixies fan, get this for the live disk. If you're just starting to explore the band, this collection is a fine way to start appreciating one of the most truly original and enjoyable bands in rock and roll history.
I'm afraid that we'll never see the likes of them again! The first cd, a best of compilation, is probably the best 45 minute encapsulation of the bands' career that can be made, but there's a good deal of things that could have gone on here that aren't.
If you're new to the pixies I'd reccomend trying to get one of your friends who's a fan to make you a mix cd first, but if not, this is a fine introduction to one of the greatest bands ever. Follow it up with Doolittle and Surfer Rosa.
Oh, and great liner notes too.
