Surfer Rosa (Explicit)

by Pixies
Surfer Rosa by Pixies
Released: Mar 1988
Label: 4ad Catalogue
The Pixies' first full-length is a brilliant end-to-end album that makes the transition from loud to quiet seem almost revolutionary. The band's combination of rabid, surreal aggression and sing-along, nihilistic pop set a template for indie rock throughout the following decade (the album came out in 1988). The massive, raw drums and guitar spasms still sound amazing.
