They Say All Music Guide

After a spooky synth intro track that sounds like a snippet of ’70s Italian horror movie specialists Goblin, the Birthday Massacre’s debut album swiftly moves into a reimagination of ’80s new wave styles rather similar to fellow Toronto band Metric but with more of a goth/darkwave vibe. Two synthesizer players do battle with a rock guitarist fond of the kind of crunchy hard-candy riffs that the hair metal bands made inescapable for a few years. Over this, mono-named singer Chibi does a passable imitation of Lene Lovich’s quirky phrasing, occasionally shooting for a more ethereal Kate Bush sort of sound. The resulting mélange of half-remembered styles from the not so distant past is entertaining enough. – Stewart Mason
