  1. It's quite a treat to hear the duo create such refreshingly original music with rock's "standard" instruments.
  2. Arguably their best record yet, a logical and accessible realization of a sound they've been developing for more than six years.
  3. While Summer in Abaddon features Pinbackā€™s by now trademarked sound and cryptic lyrics with a few nice developments, it falls victim to a sort of malaise of consistently indistinguishable mid-tempo rockers on the second half of an album that starts very strongly.
