CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Paste

From start to finish, Information Retrieved sounds confident and deliberate, a consummate release from two deft musicians who’ve made every note count.

75
Under The Radar

Information Retrieved achieves an interesting balance between showcasing Pinback’s unique take on classic indie rock and offering something that’s immediately familiar, something with the air of an old acquaintance

70
PopMatters

For an album of such wide-open sounds and ideas, Information Retrieved has a true knack for living in, and succeeding on, the smallest of details.

68
Pitchfork

There's something inherently nostalgic about Information Retrieved delivering exactly what you'd expect. 

67
A.V. Club

There’s a perversity to Information’s lack of dynamic that leaves it feeling not only flat, but maddeningly so.

40
Drowned in Sound

Even the most ardent of fans may find themselves somewhat irked to be given essentially the same album, from the same band for the fourth time.

30
Consequence of Sound

Every listen to Pinback’s latest record is so forgettable due to its insistence on treading familiar ground track after track that you may as well have never heard it at all.
