Summer in Abaddon is a generally laid back album consisting of dense, pretty songs that reward repeated listens. And although the album is generally laid-back, Pinback does demonstrate an intensity that appears on some of their other side projects on the excellent tracks "Fortress" and "AFK." Other highlights on Summer in Abaddon include "Non Photo-Blue," "Sender," and "The Yellow Ones." If you are already a Pinback fan, you may also be included in the alternate versions of the tracks "Offline PK" and "Penelope" (both of which originally appeared on the album Blue Screen Life) from a limited edition Tour E.P. from 2002.
