"Best of: Wave of Mutilation"(Vinyl)
Originally released in 2004, this best-of compilation found its way onto vinyl and into a record store in South Dakota by 2011. That's when I purchased it.
Now yes, I was already familiar with the Pixies (I believe I already owned a copy of "Surfer Rosa") but I sensed there was more to plumb from the depths of this band.
It really is a good compilation; having since acquired most of the Pixies' seminal albums, I've decided there is plenty in their output that I don't need. If inquired, I think I would push inquisitive minds towards two albums. 1988's "Surfer Rosa" (which I still think is brilliant) and this best-of collection.
