Do you have any of their previous stuff? There have been some pretty good threads around here in the past, especially after Summer in Abaddon. Blue Screen Life is a very nice one too. They have a couple very good EPs also.
Kind of a Wilco / Son Volt story with Pinback and Black Heart Procession, although there's no chance ever of an Uncle Tupelo reunion. On the other hand, Zack and Pall and the drummer guy are still good friends and have revisited their last band Three Mile Pilot recently and still apparently plan to release another TMP record. In the meantime, the old Chief Assassin to the Sinister by TMP is a great heavy dose of that earlier sound, kind of a Pinback meets Smashing Pumpkins type of sound. Their first and only short-lived trip to the major labels (although the indie version on Headhunter is the only one still available new). Dark, and heavy, but still oddly melodic. And some pretty strange lyrics. Made a severely under-appreciated thread about it awhile back
yeh autumn of the seraphs is a great album, but definitely if your going to buy one you should buy blue screen life first. Seville has got to be my favorite songs by pinback, that or XIY. Good to sea is one of my favorites on the autumn of the seraphs. Here's the song on youtube I posted a month or so ago. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3h9QFXviJ2E

I picked up autumn of seraphs last night and really like it. I just got some new headphones, and it was the first thing I listened to on them, so it seems pretty special just because of the new gear. I'll have to check of summer of abandon, I definetely like their sound.
