AllMusic Review by

Examining the origin and career of the Pixies, The Lowdown offers up an audio biography of the group with a two-disc set filled with bandmember interviews. Chronicling a band whose influence can still be felt today, The Lowdown examines the Pixies' short but tumultuous life. While this is a story that most college rock fans most likely know by heart, the rise, fall, and eventual reunion of one of the best bands of the late '80s/early '90s is a story that begs to be heard, and the professional presentation here makes The Lowdown as good a place as any to hear it.
