Doolittle is the second studio album by American alternative rock band Pixies. The album's offbeat and dark subject material, featuring references to surrealism, Biblical violence, torture and death, contrasts with the clean production sound achieved by the newly hired producer Gil Norton. Doolittle was the Pixies' first international release.

After 1988's brilliant but abrasive Surfer Rosa, the Pixies' sound couldn't get much more extreme. Their Elektra debut, Doolittle, reins in the noise in favor of pop songcraft and accessibility. Producer Gil Norton's sonic sheen adds some polish, but Black Francis' tighter songwriting focuses the group's attack. Doolittle's most ferocious moments, like "Dead", a visceral retelling of David and Bathsheba's affair – are more stylized than the group's past outbursts. Meanwhile, their poppy side surfaces on the irresistible single "Here Comes Your Man" and the sweetly surreal love song "La La Love You". The Pixies' arty, noisy weirdness mix with just enough hooks to produce gleefully demented singles like "Debaser", – inspired by Bunuel's classic surrealist short Un Chien Andalou – and "Wave of Mutilation", their surfy ode to driving a car into the sea. Though Doolittle's sound is cleaner and smoother than the Pixies' earlier albums, there are still plenty of weird, abrasive vignettes: the blankly psychotic "There Goes My Gun", "Crackity Jones", a song about a crazy roommate Francis had in Puerto Rico, and the nihilistic finale "Gouge Away". Meanwhile, "Tame", and "I Bleed" continue the Pixies' penchant for cryptic kink. But the album doesn't just refine the Pixies' sound; they also expand their range on the brooding, wannabe spaghetti western theme "Silver" and the strangely theatrical "Mr. Grieves". "Hey" and "Monkey Gone to Heaven", on the other hand, stretch Francis' lyrical horizons: "Monkey"’s elliptical environmentalism and "Hey"’s twisted longing are the Pixies' versions of message songs and romantic ballads. Their most accessible album, Doolittle's wide-ranging moods and sounds make it one of their most eclectic and ambitious. A fun, freaky alternative to most other late-'80s college rock, it's easy to see why the album made the Pixies into underground rock stars.
