'Surfer Rosa' is the first full-length album by Pixies, released in March 1988 on the British independent record label 4AD.
The album's unusual and offbeat subject matter includes references to mutilation and voyeurism; this is augmented by experimental recording techniques and a distinctive drum sound. 'Surfer Rosa' contains many of the elements present in Pixies' earlier output, including Spanish lyrics and references to Puerto Rico.
'Surfer Rosa' is often cited as a favorite of music critics and is frequently included on professional lists of the all-time best rock albums. Many alternative rock artists, including Billy Corgan and PJ Harvey, have cited the album as inspirational; Nirvana's Kurt Cobain frequently acknowledged that 'Surfer Rosa' was a strong influence on 'Nevermind,' and, in 1993, Cobain hired the album's recording engineer Steve Albini to record his band's album 'In Utero.'
