“Though never a sizable unit-shifter, Doolittle has, either directly or by way of enormously effective emissaries like Nirvana and Radiohead, permeated the very DNA of modern rock music. Doolittle is oft-regarded as the best Pixies album, and is often the point of introduction for listeners new to the band. It’s certainly the best-selling of all the quartet’s records, having inched its way over two decades and change within spitting distance of the magic one-million sales mark in America. Perhaps more crucially, it’s probably one of the most effective introductions to the alternative rock genre available, occupying a rarefied strata alongside better-known touchstones Nevermind and Ten. To deny the greatness and importance of Doolittle is in a sense to deny the greatness and importance of the Pixies, and by further extension the validity of the entire alt-rock genre.”
