Bravely soldiering on with the name in the wake of the Twin Towers tragedy, Black September have also had to cope with losing their singer Geoff Read; owner of an impressive baritone which did much to distinguish their original, off-the-wall debut album. In Read's place comes John Matthews, formerly with Manchester also-rans The High. Whilst Matthews is not as distinctive a vocalist as his predecessor his voice has an airy sadness about it which perfectly suits the melancholic likes of 'A Distant Whisper', 'I Just Don't Know' and 'Melt'. Rather disappointingly the group cover Bowie's 'Be My Wife'; it's a fair version but seems pointless for a group who have thus far avoided reverence to other artists. Odder still is choosing Black Sabbath's 'Changes' as another cover, particularly when Ozzy Osbourne and daughter have taken the same song to No. 1 in the UK charts. Far more satisfying is 'Heron High', a heads down slab of quality Brit grunge, yet this track is frustrating followed by a weak funk experiment called 'Let You Down' where Matthews sounds as confused as to what's going as anyone. However, this second album is still rich with ideas that contemporaries normally cover in the space of five albums and Black September remain the most unclassifiable of bands.
