Most Influential Modern Rock Albums, Part 2

Pix­ies, Surfer Rosa : Hav­ing been in Boston for 9 years now, I’ve lis­tened to and seen a lot of local live music — and none of it seems as good as it must have been in the late 80s. Rosa was the Pix­ies’ first LP, and though the fol­lowup Doolit­tle was more pol­ished, I pre­fer the raw­er debut.

Record­ed in Boston, at Q-Divi­sion by Steve Albi­ni, there is some­thing spe­cial about this record — the way the drums thud, and the mis­matched vocal har­monies of Frank/Charles & Kim, it just seems so inti­mate… like you can sense the space where it was record­ed.
