Music Review: Pinback’s “Autumn of the Seraphs”
November 30, 2007
Pinback sheds a few layers of sound but doesn’t sacrifice any tightness on the follow up to 2004′s “Summer in Abaddon,” “Autumn of the Seraphs.” The songs still play like clockwork, as the band hits every note in perfect time.
With the exception of the hard-driving opener “From Nothing to Nowhere,” Pinback stays true to the formula that has brought them success on past albums — clean guitars, technical beats, rhythmic singing, and a touch of electronica.
Usually when a band changes so little, I grow weary of their sound. But I guess the finely tuned machine that is Pinback isn’t broke, so why fix it?
