5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums of 2010 21 Sep 2010
By Sarah R
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars You don't just listen. You experience. 7 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
I'm pretty sure if you like their music you'll like/love every song on this album, one more than another but they're all amazing songs on an(other) amazing album.

I do feel as if the album (in general) is a bit softer (more open to a wider public) compared to previous songs. At least that's how I felt when listening to the songs for the first times.

I wish more people realized this but music should be more than listening to some sounds, and that's just what The Birthday Massacre does; you experience their songs, they contain a (fantasy) atmosphere. It's hard to describe how amazing this music can be to someone (me), but if it can be as amazing to someone else (you), that person (you) doesn't want to miss out on this.

If you like this kind of music get it, there's simply no other band comparable with The Birthday Massacre, which seems to be rare in these days of (commercial) music.
