While from a critique's perspective this may not be one of their best records, I enjoyed this CD quite a bit, even more so than Pins and Needles for sure. Maybe it packed less of punch and had less content than P&N but I found myself far more immersed into its soundscapes. Every layer, every note, and every sound seemed to drift into its own plane. A solid 4 for me!
The Birthday Massacre makes another album of the same, mostly. Their whole sound is becoming quite old, too. However, this has its moments and proves that the band has not lost their signature flair yet. With some new electronic approaches, the album shows some progress, but can otherwise become dull at times.
