CRITIC REVIEWS

‘Indie Cindy’ is still a very good album, with plenty for Pixies fans to get excited about. 

70
NME

At its best, like on ‘Bagboy’, ‘Indie Cindy’ is free-sounding, adventurous and explosive.

By no means a poor record, if this was a release by a new band, we’d be celebrating the finer moments for the quality they have, not the magic that they don’t.

Drowned in Sound

Indie Cindy isn't a bad record. Far from it in fact. But as with many other bands who've tried to turn back the clock to better days recently, it also begs the question why would anyone choose to listen to this rather than any of its predecessors?

NR
This album doesn't get the respect it deserves.

I think people are being too harsh because of past glories.
NR
Considerando que Indie Cindy é, na verdade, uma junção dos três EPs recentemente lançados por Pixies, numa compilação que acabou se tornando o primeiro álbum completo do grupo após 23 anos, me parece justo retomar os pontos levantados em suas respectivas resenhas, além de tentar, finalmente, compreender como soam todas essas músicas agora agrupadas.

Em primeiro lugar, a grande questão inevitável a ser ... read more
