I've been into the Birthday Massacre for almost 3 years now and every time they put out a new EP or album they never stop progressing with better sounds. Imaginary Monsters is no exception. Forever opens with a soft synth lush and slowly builds into a soft synth rock ballad that's really calming and sad. Burn Away is the main explosion for the CD opening with loud guitar and drums with a pretty keyboard piece on the side. The lyrics and vocals are just as power as it's sound. Left Behind closes the new songs the same way it opened with a soft and mellow vibe but still with a nice synth rock twist it all.

When it comes to remixes I generally hate them because most of them add 3-5 minutes to the song, add more, take away, or replace backing vocals/instraments and repeat the same 2-3 lines for almost the entire song. That's not a remix. With TBM I've never had to worry about that. Each remix truly makes the song sound almost like it's a whole new one of itself. Each song has been reworked to either be softer or even heavier and beyond synth rock. Some songs have Industrial, Pop/Tencho, and even Glam influences in them.
All and all it's another great EP from an amazing band!
