The Birthday Massacre are back with a new studio album. I cannot believe just how good it is. I am the proud owner of every album they have released and it amazes me that they get better and better with each new release (and I thought they were near perfect to begin with). I cannot stress enough how each song just launches itself into your head and carries you off into a land of dreams. The synth is pure atmospheric, the rhythm has perfect timing, the guitars are loud and proud and the vocals are just beautiful. Put them together and you have music to fall in love with. If you haven't heard of The Birthday Massacre yet then you're in for a treat and if you have heard of them then you won't be dissapointed. I could go on and on but I'll finish by saying that this album has just made my year. I hope fellow purchasers will enjoy this album as much as I am, now and forever.

After their last studio album 'Walking with Strangers' was released 3 years ago, the band set out on numerous tours (both as supporting acts and headlining) including some dates in the UK. With the release of the EP 'Looking Glass' with an accommodating music video and a live album; it's become clear that The Birthday Massacre are here to stay with their unique sound (Synth rock with New Wave and retro elements) and look (Alice in Wonderland meets Horror). I've loved them since their 'Violet' album and the band has gone strength to strength from then. 'Pins and Needles' is no different; sure you could argue it's 'more of the same' and the music is somewhat lighter in tone compared to their previous works (you won't find the likes of 'Blue' or 'Lover's End' here) but if you've been a fan up till now, there's no reason you won't like their latest offering.

It's quite clear from the offset that the band have a higher budget and know exactly how to deliver their sound as the entire production of the album is much tighter, Chibi has more control over her vocals and the album flows naturally from one track to the next. On the lyrical side they've got it down to a T, fantastic examples include "She wears a dress like a body bag" from 'Shallow Grave' and "I can't decide which one of us will leave here alive" from 'Midnight'.

The albums' strengths are in the harder hitting tracks; opening track and lead single 'In the Dark' hits you smack in the face with the guitars, Chibi's sweet singing and haunting lyrics that will stick with you long after you've stopped listening to it. 'Control' sees the return of Chibi's growling during the verses but with the added electric effect to her voice and great guitar licks, this track will be one getting the crowd going at gigs.

Don't you just love it when you find a random band you've never heard of and instantly fall in love with it? That is what happened in my case with The Birthday Massacre. Popping up randomly in my suggested list, 'Pins and Needles' is one of the best albums this year, or in my case, THE best album of 2010. It's very haunting yet amazing to listen to at the same time, combining some hard hitting rifts with eerie electro/synth. I still can't place the actual genre: gothicy-synthy-melodic-hard rock? Well in any case if it's VERY UNIQUE which is something the music industry seems to be lacking in recent years.

Standout tracks include the title track 'Pins and Needles' and 'Control'. Definately a 5-star album. Now excuse me while I raid my piggy-bank for their back catalogue...

I must have worn my ears out listening to this band for almost two years. I regard Pins And Needles as my favourite of their albums simply due to the consistency of decent music on it. At the time of writing this though, I've just discovered that their live album Show And Tell almost eclipses it for quality. I come from a Metal background and someone who occasionally liked to listen to Within Temptation and Delain, but The Birthday Massacre are far better.

I thought I would give this a try after reading various reviews describing how many of you had stumbled across it. Having listened to it few times I am hooked and I can fully understand everyone's enthusiasm. I have seen it variously described as 80s meets metal, a blend of the Human League and Marilyn Manson etc. I am still trying to find a way to describe it.
I have had fun playing "spot the influence" and I would say there is an obvious Psychedelic Furs guitar rif in there, and the synthesisers sound very Roxette inspired. There are more which I can't quite work out yet...
More pop than goth I think, but whatever it is, it is brilliantly done
