Mini Review “Head Carrier” by the Pixies

pixies-nuevo-albumThe Pixies released their new album Head Carrier on September 30 and I got a chance to listen to it last night.

It’s okay. Nothing to really write home about (but then again, here I am, writing about it). It’s got some pretty good open tracks but then starts to get a little boring.

It’s definitely no Doolittle. Heck, it’s not even a Trompe le Monde for that matter.

One thing I noticed is that they are incorporating Paz Lenchantin, who replaced original bass player Kim Deal, on vocals more than they did on the last album.

Overall impression: some good songs but they have done better. Definitely get it if you are a Pixies fan. If you aren’t, not a good first impression.
