Apparently the whole Birthday Massacre / Evanescence thing is a genre. It was very "slick".

    I have to say, compared to previous years your photos are distressingly clear and well exposed. Damn Apple and their ability to make a decent phone camera, we don't get to see pages of pink blobs on fuzzy blue backgrounds any more.

    I recommend you switch to the FaceTime camera immediately, or use an iPad 2 instead. They still have terrible cameras.

    I'm sure that your average music reporter, if told to write an article about the Birthday Massacre / Evanescence genre of keys + guitar + female vocalist would probably describe it as "Kate Bush gone metal".

    Or was that overly snarky?

      Only if that "average music reporter" grew up in the UK, and was writing for a UK audience. Otherwise, at best, Kate Bush would be music only his/her parents had heard of.

      In the US they might refer to Tori Amos* or Sarah McLachlan "gone metal."

      *Amusingly the first album Tori Amos put out, Y Kant Tori Read, was itself pop hard rock. Someone told her "we've already got Lita Ford" and Tori subsequently changed her style.
