I heard Fortress on the radio, and i was instantly hooked on pinback's unique sound. I bought Summer of Abbadon and Blue Screen Life, and they are two of my favorite albums. Every song on this cd is great, and a few standouts are "Penelope", "bbtone", "Offline p.k.", and "Seville". Unlike most bands around today, you can listen to a Pinback record from start to finish, not just the singles.

Lo-Fi Genius

Pinback has had their very own sound crafted from the first release. The process of maturity can be depicted through each album, yet their work remains always true to its personality of multi- layered clean guitars, hip hop rooted beats, and amazing hushed vox that resemble more of a mystic instrument than they do a voice. I disagree with the album review that refers to the Pinback sound as emo, whereas, at first glance the lyrics and progressions hint at heartache or simple distress...but listen closely to the undertone message and you will find that Pinback dives much deeper than most of their peers. It may be un-just to call Pinback anything other than, well, Pinback.

Honestly...there is not one song that is better then another; opening with Offline P.K. is so incredible. The album flows so delicately and smoothly that it could be contained into one mega-song. Among my favorites are Concrete Seconds, XIY, Prog, Your Sickness, Seville, Offline P.K., and of course, Tres. Honestly, no matter what music you listen to, you will instantly be hooked...who can avoid Pinback?
