CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Surfer Rosa is the Pixies' most polarized work. For each blazing piece of punk, there are softer, poppier moments.

Pitchfork

Surfer Rosa is highly combustible music, but slapstick, too. Many of its songs feel half-finished or regurgitated in half-digested form, with verses that run on longer than they ordinarily might, choruses that repeat odd numbers of times instead of even ones, and abrupt shifts in tone and volume.

I can't really remember when I last heard a music with this degree of lazy evil injected into it. Or a music that seemed to pin down things we wouldn't have heard ourselves, to map out ideas in the air and sing them into solid form.

Where Is My Mind? Is one of my favorite songs, but I never understood how people love the rest so much
