Pins and Needles
I have been a big fan of The Birthday Massacre since 2005 or 2006. I first heard of the band on a Cleopatra Records compilation called This is Neo-Goth. Their song "Video Kid" was on the compilation and it totally blew me away. Their album Violet confirmed me as a huge fan. Last week I picked up their newest album Pins and Needles. For the very first time I can honestly say that I do not like an album by The Birthday Massacre. I felt like I was listening to a regurgitated version of Walking with Strangers (my favorite TBM album of all time). The melodies on the album were flat and nothing extraordinary. I really wanted to like Pins and Needles but ultimately I did not care for it one bit.
