#315 on Rolling Stoneís The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time

T
he Plymouth Rock on which alternative rock was founded, the Pixies' Surfer Rosa forever altered the music environment — even if it did take most of the world a few years to catch up with its brilliance.   Internationally acknowledged as a pioneering record, its rollercoaster blend of harsh and soft tempos, male and female singing, intense punk and bubblegum pop tones, dark and light quips, and off-kilter sensibilities is the influential equivalent of the Velvet Undergroundís oft-cited 1968 debut.

Remastered by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab from recently discovered, first-generation analog original master tapes, this groundbreaking record now sounds as if you were experiencing it for the first time.   Vivid, immediate, massive, and detailed, this is how Surfer Rosa was meant to be heard when Albini completed it and turned it into the label.
