Tending toward a bright, full guitar sound and near-falsetto male harmonies make Pinhead Circus seems a youthful, energized Stiff Little Fingers. The Colorado trio began near a full decade ago in the business of melodic punk. Their upbeat, sophisticated punk is the best in a very long time for me. Easy to listen to repeatedly, the album keeps coming across courageous and animate. Beside the punk dynamism, there is plenty of material explicitly about alienation and alcohol.
