Blue Screen Life
Released: Jan 2001
Label: Ace Fu Records
Held against Pinback's debut, the songs on Blue Screen Life are more elaborately composed and more urgent, though the collection as a whole is less consistent. Even though the downtempo "Boo" seems like filler next to extraordinary efforts like "Penelope" or "X I Y," it demonstrates the band's expansive ear for instrumentation. The relatively chirpy "Concrete Seconds" is as close as Pinback comes to playing straightforward pop.
