* ''Trompe le Monde'' (1991): Maintaining the shiny spacey sound of the previous effort but much more HeavyMetal-influenced (Francis attributed this to recording next door to Music/OzzyOsbourne), showcases the band at their most {{Badass}} (the furiously fast "Planet of Sound", [[Music/TheJesusAndMaryChain "Head On"]] cover, the cowbell-fortified TakeThat "U-Mass"), while making enough room for melodic ("Bird Dream of the Olympus Mons") and mellow material ("The Navajo Know"). Former Music/PereUbu keyboardist Eric Drew Feldman contributes keyboards and went on to collaborate with Francis and Music/PJHarvey.

* LoopedLyrics: Used to awesome effect in "Stormy Weather." And to {{Badass}} effect in the chorus of "Planet of Sound".

Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Kim Shattuick and Paz Lechantin are both this to Kim Deal. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Nf8o-qhO2g The one song that Paz sings]] seems to be sung as close to Kim's voice as possible.

to:

* ''Head Carrier'' (2016): Previously a tour-only bassist, Paz Lenchantin joins the band in studio for a full album.


Added DiffLines:

** "All I Think About Now" features Paz Lenchantin on lead vocals. Black Francis asked her to sing it, and she agreed to it so long as he wrote the lyrics and the song was a "thank you letter" to Kim Deal.


Added DiffLines:

** The formula is inverted by "Bone Machine", which has loud verses and a quiet chorus.

* WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: The subject of "Gigantic" is an interracial couple. The lyrics were inspired by a movie with this subject named Movie/CrimesOfTheHeart.

* LastNoteNightmare: "Where Is My Mind?"

* LastNoteNightmare: "Where Is My Mind?"Mind?" suddenly cuts to almost nothing mid-riff, with nothing but very quiet vocals throughout the next several seconds.

* AlbumTitleDrop: The EP ''Come On Pilgrim'' takes its name from a line in "Levitate Me." Similarly, ''Doolittle'' is mentioned in "Mr. Grieves." ''Surfer Rosa'' is said in "Oh My Golly!". Finally, ''Bossanova'' comes from its song "Hang Wire". ''Trompe le Monde'' doesn't have this, but it makes up for that by having a song called "Trompe le Monde", the only Pixies album to have a TitleTrack.

* PlayingAgainstType: The band was unusually loud compared to the other acts 4AD was known for, such as Music/CocteauTwins and Music/DeadCanDance. The Pixies were also one of 4AD's first American acts.
