PIXIES – Head Carrier (Pixies Music/Play It Again Sam)

Pixies last album after their reforming, the cracking ‘Indie Cindy’, was so much better than we could’ve hoped that it set the bar high for the next one. While not quite up to that standard, this is still a creditable effort from a band that many had written off as past their best. ‘Baal’s Back’ makes good use of Black Francis’ manic howl, and while most of the rest is melodic mid-tempo art rock, it’s still good stuff.
