Billy Talent - Devil in a Midnight Mass Single Review
Devil in a Midnight Mass
A strange pseudo-pop-punk offering this. Billy Talent must be on an uphill struggle to overcome a truly awful name without their rather confusing sound. Thin, reedy American production strips away any real energy and feel from the song, leaving some sort of bastardised Linkin Park-lite.
There is no doubt that the likes of MTV and Kerrang will jump at this type of safe, commercialised and sanitised affair, but anyone with a discerning ear should not.
