I think it could fit an early FB record.

And All the Saints could fit Bossanova.

Third favourite is Tenement Song. It's catchy. Most other songs on the record are average/some are a little boring.

Of course it's impossible to match Pixies 1.0. But everyone knows that, including the Pixies themselves. How do you want to match Pixies 1.0 anyway.

Well I didn't say "match," I said "come close to."

Try calling 2.0 "Shwarma" and see if you like it better. I bet you will.

So, is this thread dead? Or, have we arrived at the "best" of Pixies 2.0?

Not the 9 I would have picked, but I guess so...

So the question is, if the first Pixies release in 20 something years would have been these 9 songs (instead of Thwok, ep 1, IC, HC) would you have been more pleased as a fan of 1.0?

Overall (except for Bagboy and Indie Cindy) it's definitely a yes for me

No. Because Black Francis doesn't scream the same way he did. Because the songs don't have that 1.0 manic energy, when they were all in their twenties. Because Kim's sweet voice isn't there anymore. Because the songs are more straightforward. Because the lyrics are less abstract. Because the artwork is not as cool as it was back then. Because they look kind of older, for some reason. Because the sky is blue and it makes me cry.

Would it be a top 3 post-Pixies album from the man? Maybe.

There is plenty of post-Pixies stuff he's done that would have made a better Pixies 2.0 album than these 9 songs, but that was a different game we played on a different thread.
