The Pixies

This three-disc 25th-anniversary package gives the Pixies' surreal 1989 breakthrough the monument it deserves. Along with the original LP, B sides and Peel Session performances illuminate the frenetic process leading up to classics like "Debaser" and "Gouge Away." Best of all are the unreleased 1988 demos: Recorded in a basement under a hair salon near Boston, they're a charmingly slapdash alternate view of the album that launched a thousand indie bands.
