"The concert footage, which is exceptionally well photographed and
recorded, offers clips of varying lengths from a wealth of songs. The
rest of the film glimpses the stress disorders that can develop when
average people with problems become popular."
Bill White
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"It's for fans of the Pixies' music (lovingly ladled on by codirectors
Steven Cantor and Matthew Galkin in lushly lit concert footage), fans
of the crazy twin Deal sisters sipping Starbucks and venting, fans of
the drug-addled Where's Waldo games of worryingly distracted drummer
David Lovering. In short, it's for people who can listen to the
acoustic version of "Wave of Mutilation" on repeat endlessly. Okay,
fine, you got me." Joshua Rothkopf, TimeOut NY

"The fascinating 'loudQUIETloud' plays a bit like the alt-rock version
of the Metallica documentary 'Some Kind of Monster,' as the Pixies try
to hold it together through mental breakdowns, family tragedies and
those ever-popular musical differences."
Scott Von Doviak

"The real draw is the insight into the group's dynamic, heretofore
shaded in mystery."
Marrit Ingman
Austin Chronicle
