This is a really good album. Sure it hasn't got the old weirdness but I'm fine with that.

Late to the party, but yeah, Beneath the Eyrie slaps. Pixies aren't dead, and Paz is doing an outstanding job.

I really dig the Paz track. The Silver Bullet > Long Rider > Los Surfers Muertos > St. Nazaire is a great run. I think the album hits a bit of a skid early with This Is My Fate > Ready For Love, but they might be growers. The singles are obviously brilliant, and David Boone > Death Horizon is a lovely closing sequence.

Some of that weirdness shows up in 'On Graveyard Hill' in the form of a Frank Black shriek, and it's rad as heck. What a song.

The singles instantly worm their way into your head.

I listened when it was new, and I really, really couldn't get into it.

Maybe I'll try again soon.

yeah i love the last one. Crazy to think it has a year, feels like it was released three or four years ago. Havent listened to that expanded edition yet...and yes, Paz is awesome.

I didn't know they had a new one out. I really like it. Head Carrier did little for me, though.

yeah, Head Carrier is the worst of the new releases but still a good one. I love everything they did post Deal.

Indie Cindy kicks ass.

I still don't really like 'Ready For Love' from Eyrie. The album flows a lot better without it. Every other song ranges from good to top tier Pixies.

Boone should be the closer, but it's Death Horizon, is it not?

Just heard their cover of T. Rex's 'Mambo Sun' for the first time. This band is a treasure.

OK, so I did.

I gave up after the first three songs and put on Trompe le Monde instead.

Whatever elements work for me on the original records are just totally absent.

The songs just don't hit for me.
