The World Conspires is as mentioned Birdeatsbaby fifth but at the same time the beginning of a new phase in the musical development of Birdeatsbaby. For the first time the band touching the spheres of modern prog metal. Reaching into these new avenues of musical inspiration, the English band fuse their genre of Dark Cabaret with harder progressive sounds without neglecting their roots.
With The World Conspires Birdeatsbaby have now returned with a soundtrack for the soulful, haunting, riotous celebration of life in all its facets. The album leads the listener on a roller coaster ride of drama and conflicting emotions. From the rich, orchestral and fragile album opener Hold Your Breath, a mantra for anyone who has gone through trauma, it continues with the mystical Painkiller.
The title song The World Conspires is a overwhelming ode to love, on to Lady Grey, which elegiacally and captivatingly walks through the shadows, before the musicians slow down with How Do I and let Mishkin Fitzgerald’s sensitive voice float over soft piano sounds, accompanied by strings. The tragic Box Of Razorblades continues atmospherically until the last act is introduced with the extraordinary Dido’s Lamen along with brilliant guest vocals by Feline Lang (Feline & Strange). In Kill No One the punk attitude of earlier day’s flashes up again before the last curtain falls with the spherical Look Away.
