"The accolades continue to roll in. Q magazine declared the rock landmark as one of the 100 Greatest Albums Ever. Mojo inducted the record into its Hall of Fame. Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain cited it as a primary influence. Most prestigiously, Rolling Stone placed Doolittle high on its highly regarded 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list, where the hyper-melodic record landed at #226 and ahead of familiar classics by the likes of dozens of household-name artists.

Sourced from the original master tapes, this version of the cleanly produced record offers transparent resolution that yields unprecedented clarity, vibrant immediacy, stunning transparency, and tonal punch. Every note and passage is greatly improved and properly scaled, be it vocal textures, life-size drum beats, or the multitude of musical elements that, on previous incarnations of the record, went unheard. Need examples? Check out Francis and bassist Kim Deal’s back-and-forth gasps on “Gouge Away,” the solar-plexus-hitting guitar effects on the anything-but “Tame,” and atmospheric vibes on “Wave of Mutilation.” Of course, the content is deserving of the brilliant sound.

Chock full with violent surrealism, religious symbolism, and a head-spinning range of material that encompasses atomic pop, theatrical country and western, abrasive post-punk, and giddy surf rock, the record is a synthesis of contagious tunefulness and linguistic wit. If that’s not enough, fits of romance, humor, and glee balance the addictively fun narratives of now-standard tunes such as “Here Comes Your Man,” “Debaser,” and “Monkey Gone to Heaven.” And it’s never sounded so good or so engaging."

"Kurt Cobain himself acknowledged the Pixies' influence on the soft/loud dynamic that powered "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Doolittle is a mix of the band's earlier hardcore storms, Black Francis' self-described "stream of unconsciousness" rants and the strange melodicism that flowered in his Frank Black solo records." - Rolling Stone

"Numerology, sludge in the ocean, a hole in the sky — what's it all supposed to mean? Said Francis (a.k.a. Frank Black), 'The phrase 'monkey gone to heaven' just sounds neat.' Norton [producer] cleaned up the band's sound, adding the eerie strings, but the Pixies didn't bother to try for pop appeal. Said Francis, 'It wasn't like we thought we'd get played on the radio.'" - Rolling Stone
