pins and needles- music review


You may or may not be familiar with Birthday Massacre. If you've gone to one of their concerts then you've had a blast.
Rainbow is the lead guitarist

The band is from London, Ontario. They are considered synthrock. I have to admit I fell in love with their TO DIE FOR from their Walking with Strangers CD in 2008. Chibi who has been lead singer since the beginning, way back in 1999, is a bit 80's Kim Wilde and Aimee Mann kind of voice, but she takes her music down a dark road. Many a girl at their concerts, whether they are 48 or 8 will have those dark pig-tails and in black  with black lipstick, ready to sing along with each song she gives her audience.

This past September, they came out with their 4th CD. This is definitely something  the fans wanted. Some of it tends to blend together. Yet, I really thought they had a very strange and awesome beginning to the first track, In the dark. Some very cool sounds. But I have to admit I got into it by the time Pale started. But my favorite tracks were later, in Sideways, and Two Hearts.

If you are fan, its a must have. If you want some of their best work, I would go with Running with Strangers.
