2008 180-gram reissue. Originally released in 1990. “Gil Norton’s spacious, reverb-heavy production makes the Pixies sound like a Martian bar band, which fits the cover of the Surftones’ ‘Cecilia Ann’ and the glorious, shimmering closer ‘Havalina’ perfectly. On the theremin-driven ‘Velouria,’ science fiction imagery displaces Francis’ penchant for fetishistic lyrics. . . . The similarly cryptic ‘All Over the World’ and alien abduction tale ‘The Happening’ add to the sci-fi feel. Quirky pop songs like ‘Allison,’ a tribute to jazz cool-cat Mose Allison, and ‘Dig for Fire,’ Francis’ self- professed Talking Heads homage, heighten Bossanova’s playful, slightly off- kilter vibe.” –Heather Phares, AllMusic
