Ever since Walking With Strangers, The Birthday Massacre have been straddling the line between catchy synth pop and their gothy/industrial roots; leaning more to one side or the other depending on which album you?re listening to. Regardless of direction, though, every album so far had managed to be fairly instant, catchy, and easily digestible. That has changed with Under Your Spell. Under Your Spell is easily The Birthday Massacre?s most subdued album, trading in huge hooks for subdued atmosphere, and cute lyrics with morbid undertones for moody introspection. Due to these changes, Under Your Spell takes more than a few listens to truly start getting into. Those extra listens might require a little dedication, because at first everything seems to blend together with the same tempo and vocal delivery. In the end, though, Under Your Spell is definitely worth the extra ?work? because the breakthrough is definitely rewarding.

Great album by the Birthday Massacre, it has their most intense electronics since Walking With Strangers, and seems to favor atmosphere/mood and clever vocal lines over huge choruses which I personally find to be a nice change of pace. A very confident and mature album, with the cuteness dialed back a bit in favor of darkness.
