Editorial Reviews

Like a cold wind blowing across the river Styx, Diary Of Dreams has returned with its ninth studio album, (if). Featuring 12 distinct tracks riddled with emotional stress and turmoil, (if) is definitively one of Diary Of Dreams strongest releases to date. Themes of happiness, sadness, confusion, loss, and understanding run throughout the album, but (if) is not a concept album. Each track tells its own story and can be applied to life in a myriad of ways. From the opening track The Wedding to the albums closing Kingdom Of Greed Diary of Dreams mix of classical, electronic, and rock elements couple with Adrians powerfully stunning vocals to deliver a message straight from the heart to the soul. Heartwarmingly sad, yet beautiful at the same time, you must ask yourself What (if)'

Format: Audio CD
The Birthday Massacre is a great act and they have produced some really great songs. Their two releases (and their songs like Shiver) have been a breath of fresh air in a genre that needed it, with many of their songs speaking on some things good, some things bad, and some things sadistic. I personally loved Violet and the songs on it, with Blue and Happy birthday telling tales that had a really terrifc feel to them (and had a dark side to them as well). I'm not sure about their following, however, because they have had to build it from the ground up because of their Canadian origins and their inability to get a fair shake from the video tree (simply watch Blue and Shiver and you'll see what i mean).

Taking this further, the band decided to put together a live album from their almost constant touring and Show and Tell turned out great. Normally I don't go for live acts in any shape or quise, but I've seen TBM three times now and have to say that they showed me a beautiful side to live acts. Instead of their sound changing or the vocals not matching up, they managed to take their opening slot and turn it into one that was purely electric. That meant that they had what it took to be an opening act, and you can see that on the live album. you can also tell something aobut the band from seeing them live as well: unlike many of the bands that are aroudn now, this is a cohesive unit that moves from one place to another. They share themselves with their fans, too, and you can tell that simply by listening to the support they receive when they take the stage and sound off. Hopefully this album will show people something more aobut them, and will make them pick up Nothing and Nowhere and Violet.

I actually bought this before I knew it was a concert album, but I'm not unhappy at all. I love it so much, and it's the best "live" album I've heard, ever. Chibi's vocal are for the most part in tune, and her technique is different than on The Birthday Massacre's main albums. For those interested in the music for the first time, though, I recommend "Walking With Strangers" as a first purchase. The awesome, creepy song "Blue" is done very well on this album, as well as their mascot song "Happy Birthday". You can hear the music very well under the vocals, as it seems to have been recorded at a small venue, where the music didn't have to be deafening to be heard. Chibi makes little comments here and there to the audience, which is cool, and they chose their best songs to play. I recommend this album for sure!

I and my sister are big fans of the Birthday Massacre and i got this for my sister for her birthday. She loved it and I have to say I enjoy it too and the price was right. If you are unfamiliar with the group then you might want to sample some of their material first before you commit.

I have been a fan of this band since last year & I was immediately blown away by the type of & quality music that they play. It's an amazing blend of alternative, metal, & industrial rolled into one & it's very easy to follow & get pumped while listening to it! Now I don't understand why the reviewer before me is down on this CD because the CD does sound almost as perfect as a studio recording but everything (other than the keyboards/programming) still does have a raw feel to it. Some of the songs on here sound even better than their studio versions such as "Blue" & "Happy Birthday." I am VERY PLEASED with this release & if you are a big fan of this band or even new to them DON'T HESITATE to buy this CD...quality live production & excellent set list from Birthday Massacre..need I say more?!

In filler land I much prefer the live album to a best of, and this is a fine example of a best of disguised as a live album. All of your favorites are here.

I happened to catch these guy's in Baltimore MD the week before this album came out and I noticed they like many industrial, groups play to backing tracks, all the keyboard intros were performed by a tape (or an iPod, like the two opening acts), it sounded like triggers on the drums, and their may or may not be guitar tracks to "thicken" the sound. I have no problem with this practice, it just figures into my complaint about the album, which is that it seems like a sterile reproduction of the studio recordings with rougher vocals. That said there's plenty energy to the performances and a nice mix material.

Check it out for your self, and buy the DVD when it come out.

Awesome CD and I like the list of songs even though I never heard some of them before making me want the original CD's they were listed on.
Kinda wonder if Chibi interacted with crowd more than what I hear. Cant get enough of the Birthday Massacre.
