The Pixies Doolittle (1989)
The Pixies never quite blew up while they were releasing their best music, but it seems like with every year that passes, more people realize how great of a band they really were. Maybe the problem was they came along at the wrong time, right before alternative rock took over the mainstream with grunge. But considering that the Pixies were one of Kurt Cobain's favorite bands, would grunge have even existed without them? Either way, Doolittle is a classic in its own right.
