It is only natural that when a life-changing band such as Joy Division arrives on the music scene then thousands of other bands will emerge all trying to emulate that sound themselves. This re-release of their 1982 album is largely based on Joy Division's sound but unlike other bands, even though they could be accused of plagiarism, they did it better than most. Most of the elements needed were in place but they certainly did not have an Ian Curtis in their ranks; vocalist Alan Hempsall's whine being the weakness here sounding very thin and insubstantial although it appears to grow in confidence towards the end of this CD. The best tracks on offer are the final two extra recordings, 'Concorde Square' sounds like their own version of Joy Division's 'The Eternal' with it's stately piano and general end-of-the-world atmosphere whilst 'Sexus' contains, for once, a biting vocal and a breathtaking post-punk anthem which most bands would be proud of. Sadly, the public were unmoved although the band recently reconvened for a one-off gig in late 1999.
