Second Verse is music on the back (as opposed to the good) foot--probably because so much good and bad has happened around So Solid since their previous album (They Don't Know). Dedicating a track to the murdered schoolboy Damilola Taylor is a well-meaning but too convenient way to attempt to clear themselves of acts of violence and crime (including convictions for gun possession and violent assault).

Unfortunately, on Second Verse, the public pressure has led them to play safe. Gone are the ugly beats, the off-key tempos and sheer risk-taking of early work such as "Woah". They've opted for the (superficially) easier life of R&B and hip-hop like so many of their garage forebears (Craig David, Mis-Teeq, et al). This is best illustrated on the single "Broken Silence", with its nod to Tupac, or Colder with its child-sung chorus. The imitation doesn't stop there: "So Grimey" takes on the Neptunes (and can only lose), "Six O' Clock" comes off like an unpractised Roots Manuva, "Angry Beats" leans heavily on US rapper Scarface and "Kaish's Theme" is Bone thugs-n-(little)-harmony. The redeeming track is "Bou Bas" (and its remix)--a wild, heavy, chanted anthem that goes completely off the dial. If only there were more cuts like this. Under so much pressure So Solid have become severely watered down. --Jake Barnes
