Pixies Track 1

Pixies Album Competition, take 1... or, rather, track 1: I'll list the track ones off the Pixies initial
EP and four subsequent albums. You rank as many of them as you can comfortably do so. The Come On Pilgrim tracks are more optional than the others - the whole thing is, of course, optional - as they won't count towards deciding The Official Favorite Pixies Album of Force Power Paintball and Other Diversions - for that I'm only using the relative rankings of songs from the four albums. Feel free to include extraneous media (or whatever) in your rankings. Feel even more free to include hilarious and biting commentary.

Come On Pilgrim - Caribou
Surfer Rosa - Bone Machine
Doolittle - Debaser
Bossanova - Cecilia Ann
Trompe Le Monde - Trompe Le Monde

Bossanova takesa non-standard route and opens with an instrumental... though it is an loud and aggressive song none-the-less. Will that be enough to make a dent against lots of Black Francis screaming? On a side note, you're so pretty when you're unfaithful to me.

Please offer your rankings via the comments widget below or to my email - with Pixies in the subject - which is mountmccabe at gmail dot com.

This first one almost isn't fair. So, I'm going to be a little mischievous here...

(btw -- while I've heard about half of the songs somewhere or other, I don't feel confident enough to rank any COP songs -- hell, I barely feel familiar enough w/ Bossanova)

4. Cecelia Ann
3. Trompe Le Monde
1.6. Bone Machine
1.4. Debaser

It's criminal that two of my five favorite Pixies' songs have to face each other, so this is my devious way around it. Oh, and I'm sure it'll get smacked down.

1. Come On Pilgrim - Caribou
2. Surfer Rosa - Bone Machine
3. Doolittle - Debaser
4. Bossanova - Cecilia Ann
5. Trompe Le Monde - Trompe Le Monde

I don't think this will be a regular "time released" order but for this, it works for me.
