Logical continuation of the Birthday Massacre sound Sept. 14 2010
By Herbert West - Published on
Format: Audio CD
On Pins & Needles, Birthday Massacre manage to become both heavier and melodic at the same time. Well, heavier in regards to their guitar sound anyway. Their trademark arpeggiated synth sound is still in full force as is their sense for melancholy lyrics. To put it simply, if Walking With Strangers had been a double album, Pins & Needles could have been the second disc. There doesnt seem to be any new styles approached on this record, rather it is another set of great dark and poppy industrial rock songs. Nothing wrong with that. The album has a cohesive feel and listeners will be starving for more after the last track. The only downside is that I'm partial to them ending their records on a solemn note like the last album. However, on this record the album ends with a more upbeat number, which gives the album an overall rockin' vibe. Great Alice In Wonderland-esque artwork as usual too. This album was made for the fans of the band and will definitely satisfy the music lover looking for some accessible pop that still retains a dark edge not found on the radio. Highlights include Always, Shallow Grave, and Secret, but the whole album flows as one piece of art which more than makes up for the short running time.

Great album worth picking up. :)

True to form.... Sept. 16 2010
By David Falzano - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Like the last reviewer said, this album doesn't offer anything new for fans of The Birthday Massacre but it is yet another top notch production with a few small differences. The music is more uplifting & less brooding this time around (which is fine by me regardless) AND the most obvious difference is the scary death vox which singer Chibi uses quite a bit in previous releases are not present on this release whatsoever. It seems obvious to me that The Birthday Massacre are trying not necessarily to evolve but to mature as an artist & honestly Chibi's voice is so sweet to the ears that the harsh vocals do her injustice so I'm not too disappointed that she is not using them on this CD. Fans go out & buy another EXCELLENT album from this band!

Doesn't Disappoint Sept. 16 2010
By Ryan - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you like any previous Birthday Massacre albums, you definitely won't be disappointed by this one. It is a bit heavier on the guitar end, but I don't think the synths suffer for it. This is just as melodic as anything they've done before, though maybe not quite as dark. Also, while some songs are extremely catchy (Pins and Needles, for example), I'd say this album is less catchy overall. Some of the songs, while good, don't quite stand out. For that reason, I'm not sure I would rank this album above their last effort, Walking with Strangers. Still, this is a solid collection and I'm definitely glad I purchased it. The opener, "In the Dark," is one of their best songs to date, while "Shallow Grave" and "Control" are a joy to listen to.

If you're at all curious about buying this album, go ahead and do yourself a favor. Buy it now. If we don't support good music like this, it just might go away.

*** UPDATE on JANUARY 12, 2010 ***

After giving this album a few months' listening time, I have decided that it is not only my favorite Birthday Massacre album, but one of my favorite albums in general. It has remained in my car stereo for weeks. Every time I try listening to something else, I find myself missing this album. Seriously. It's good. Just let it grow on you.

More...more...More...Please? Aug. 25 2011
By Jessica A. Weiss - Published on
I accidentally stumbled upon The Birthday Massacre earlier this year. Now I anxiously await anything new. I now own everything they've recorded. Female fronted but not harsh or whiny. Hard to place them into one category. I find some of the music uplift and make me want to dance...while others I simply want to close my eyes and listen carefully.

Consistent but has some good, new ideas too Oct. 12 2010
By Peter Blitz - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Like most people are saying - this is not a major departure from Walking With Strangers. The band is certainly shifting the focus towards guitar more and more. There is less of the fantasy type songs from their earlier efforts.
Chibi has really come into her own vocally. However, I do like the variety of vocal style on previous efforts, like her venom spitting vocals on Blue. They do experiment with vocal effects on Control, which really end up highlighting her normal voice because it has a really cool way of cutting through.
Always has a cool vocal melody that reminds me of 80's Rush for a second. Not to say that this band is anything like Rush, but sometimes things just strike you out of nowhere.
Shallow Grave spotlights Chibi's Madonna style IMO.
One thing missing from this album for me is that there is no all out heavy song like Blue, Broken or Red Stars. Pins And Needles and Sleepwalking probably come the closest. I actually REALLY like Sleepwalking. Cool mix of Chibi's little girl vocals, her powerful vocals, heavy industrial riff, and a nifty little drum flourish sound. I would really love this song if I thought the drummer did that drum flourish live with double bass drums but that may be a little too metal for TBM.
The only song that I am not particularly a fan of is Secret. I think they could have left it off or done something better like they did with Movie. I am not a huge fan of ballads anyway, so I would not have any problem if they had replaced this song with some a little harder.
Overall, TBM fans will like this. If you are new to the band, I would suggest starting with Violet which was their pinnacle IMO. It was the perfect marriage of their fantasy element with their more straight up rock band side. From there, I would listen to the earlier and later stuff. Definitely do not forget to check out Nothing And Nowhere too. I think getting these albums first will help put Walking With Strangers and Pins And Needles into better context. Anyway, I love this for me, when TBM hits a double, that is better than a home run from a million other bands.
