Bob Stanley reviews The Pixies Bossanova. Taken from Melody Maker, 11th August 1990.
Another first, this time from Bob Stanley. I reckon he gets the review pretty much spot on. When this came out there was a sense of disappointment. It’s still a great record but it felt a bit limp and all the rough edges had been sanded down. The Happening is the standout track on this album for me.
Sorry about the top left cover rip. No idea why I ripped it. My only excuse is that I went to art college. It makes for quite a funny juxtaposition as the Boo-Yaa dude seems to be looking down with total disgust on pasty Charles Francis and chums.
