  4. 8.0 |   Northern Transmissions

    Doggerel is different than that of the Pixies’ previous music catalog; however, maybe it’s time to let them evolve

  7. 8.0 |   The Observer

  8. 7.5 |   Under The Radar

    Sure, they may now be “just a band,” but on this evidence, they’re now a more compelling, entrancing one than they’ve been in years

  9. 7.0 |   Uncut

    If we can now safely conclude that the Pixies are unlikely to hit the heights of early days, then let’s face it, it’s the rare mortal who can; but it’s also the only slightly less rare mortal who can make albums as solidly good as this one. Print edition only

    Read Review

  14. 5.0 |   PopMatters

    Pixies’ Doggerel switches between rock and folk drastically. The crisp production perfectly serves this dynamic, but for foggy ideas and fabricated whimsy.
