Doolittle is the second studio album by American alternative rock band Pixies, originally released in April 1989 by 4AD Records.

After the brilliant but abrasive ‘Surfer Rosa’, the Pixies' sound couldn't get much more extreme. Doolittle reins in the noise in favour of pop songcraft and accessibility. Producer Gil Norton's sonic sheen adds some polish, but Black Francis' tighter songwriting focuses the group's attack.

Doolittle 's most ferocious moments, like "Dead", a visceral retelling of David and Bathsheba's affair, are more stylized than the group's past outbursts. Meanwhile, their poppy side surfaces on the irresistible single "Here Comes Your Man" and the sweetly surreal love song "La La Love You".

The Pixies' arty, noisy weirdness mix with just enough hooks to produce gleefully demented singles like "Debaser", and "Wave Of Mutilation", their surfy ode to driving a car into the sea.

Though Doolittle 's sound is cleaner and smoother, there are still plenty of weird, abrasive vignettes: the blankly psychotic "There Goes My Gun", "Crackity Jones", a song about a crazy roommate Francis had in Puerto Rico, and the nihilistic finale "Gouge Away". Meanwhile, "Tame", and "I Bleed" continue the Pixies' penchant for cryptic kink.

The album doesn't just refine the Pixies' sound; they also expand their range on the brooding, wannabe spaghetti western theme "Silver" and the strangely theatrical "Mr. Grieves".

Their most accessible album, Doolittle 's wide-ranging moods and sounds make it one of their most eclectic and ambitious. A fun, freaky alternative to most other late-'80s college rock, it's easy to see why the album made the Pixies into underground rock stars.

Check out the tracks: “Monkey Gone To Heaven”, “Here Comes Your Man” and “I Bleed”. 

This limited reissued LP with reproduced artwork is pressed in the UK on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl.
