    A bitter pill to swallow for most Pixies fans and even those of Frank Black's early solo work. That being said, I think this record is A bitter pill to swallow for most Pixies fans and even those of Frank Black's early solo work. That being said, I think this record is pleasant, but overlong. There's some really good songs in there, but you have to find them amongst some boring filler. (Yes, Frank Black can be boring!) Which isn't to say it is bad. Just not something that makes your ears perk up and listen intently. Full Review »
