I'm not together, and you know it's true.
My bits all wander in the trees.
And if I ever seem a little strange,
Would you excuse me please?

I said I'm human, but you know I lie.
I'm only visiting this shore.
I'll soon be leaving in the outbound tide
I pray again we will meet.

I'm wasting your time, just talking to you
Maybe best you go on home.
I'll leave you alone, fade from your mind,
Slip into the greens and blues.

Greens and blues...

I'm wasting your time, just talking to you,
Maybe best you go on home.
I'll leave you alone, fade from your mind,
Slip into the greens and blues.

Oh this is so sad.  Not a good song at all.  I love the Pixies.  Saw them twice.  Once in 1991 and once on the "reunion tour"  Sometimes bands should stay broken up...RIP original Pixies.
 
I'd have been so pleased to have the ability to have created this song  and play it and have a career ... but each to their own - peace. Oh by the way, it's a beautiful work too ...

Wasn’t sure about it at first but this has really grown on me. The melancholy sound is so soothing.

Right on I thought it's the oasis

Pixies is full of beautiful harmonics no other band uses, it's so musically poetical and full of harmonic passages, syncopations, key changes and everything else to make this music so lovable and colorful like no other. Thats why I love them. My fave is Head Carrier album. Incredible and one of a kind - The Pixies.
Cheap Trick followed by the Pixies. It must be Bill’s “great live acts” playlist. 
i never get tired of their sound  rate 7
Such a great tune from such a great band so far into their career at this point.
That's better
Quote from Kurt Cobain:

"I was basically trying to rip off the Pixies. I have to admit it . When I heard the Pixies for the first time, I connected with that band so heavily I should have been in that band – or at least in a Pixies cover band. We used their sense of dynamics, being soft and quiet and then loud and hard." - Kurt Cobain, January 27, 1994, Rolling Stone Magazine

Hey coloradojohn check this out, lots of sublime images of Japan:   afixed.in

It's like seeing an old friend you used to party with and  ... woosh ... yer ready to go to your old bar and smoke the ol' pack of cigarettes, drink the same pint of beer, swing by that taco joint for a late nighter and wake up and do it all over again.
But wait, the old friend turns out to be kind of a dick and you forgot that part where he likes flying saucers. Nobody smokes anymore. Drinking gives you heartburn and the taco joint is now a TJ Max.
That's how I feel about the Pixies' new album. 

 

I don't share your perception of this music but I really like the way you tell the story. I could almost see the place between Welsh's bar and  a painting by Hooper coming to live.




Not a big Pixies fan but this record is a beauty.
this is so fecking G..R..ANDDDDD!
Pixies I don't have!  Must get.  Shades of Bossa Nova . . .
I saw them a few weeks ago and they are as good as ever live.  
excellent man!  before this Cloud cult though, way bad

Jeez, this is just crap. What's wrong at RP- taking 'payola' from the Pixies' label?

 
Bill never played the Pixies a ways back.
A small, but aggressive population of R. Paradise members shamed him into submission... and he finally caved. {#Cheesygrin}

Thanks Bill!

I fully expected this album to suck (the 'old band' + 'new album' combination isn't usually a good one) ... but it really isn't bad at all. I particularly like the title track. 
 

Yep, that usually isn't a good combo. I haven't checked it out yet, but without Kim Deal it has to be missing something.....doesn't it?

Cool tune.

Would love to hear the Pixies do something with Mike Doughty...for some strange reason...
Big 9 for me!

Have you considered that maybe you're the old friend in this story?
love love love the pixies{#Guitarist}

I don't hear that any more than any of their other influences, unless I were specifically listening for a Jeff Lynne 'sound', but two different people could hear three or four notes of a song and easily be reminded of entirely different influences.  This tune does have a sort of descending melody, which Lynne's tunes often had; maybe that's it.

Not all that bad! I don't really get all the negative reviews about this album. I agree it's the worst of their career, but it's still a decent album with some really good songs.

Could happily live without this song
Tonight in Lyon, France {#Dancingbanana_2}
Sounds just fine ... and feeling grateful for more Pixies.  I actually missed them the first time around, started listening a couple of years ago, and am always very happy when they come on.

Hearing more from the album will be great!  Regarding the line, "I'm wasting your time just talking to you", I'm thinking that it might have a lot to do with the title of the song, "Greens and Blues", as those items tend to make one feel "tired" and, maybe, self-critical.  Anyway, I like this track and can't wait to hear more from the rest of the album.

Sounds Good!
Distinctly Pixiesque chord sequences, but about as exciting as the latest Depeche Mode drivel. Most disappointing, but still better than a lot of new stuff out there. As you can tell, my opinion may or may not be ambiguous.

Yeah - I know what you mean!  It's too bad that she didn't realize that Pixies still had some great tunes to create!  She didn't want to be a part of a dud...
Everyone in my shoes is loving this!

Like it a lot.  An 8 from me
For me it's more like hooking up with a friend you haven't seen in 23 years, only to find out that you have both lived life, aged, matured, and mellowed.  No need to smoke and drink - we've both been there/done that.  Instead, just hanging out with that comfortable familiarity yet having new conversations.

Just lovely.
I can see how these guys had some new sounds that influenced other bands, but they could not bring it all together in a good way themselves ---- a most forgetable band.  They remind me of Sonic Youth.
