Black Widow = Remaster = (CD)
Much like Sacrifice, Black Widow's self titled LP is highly consistent, making it difficult to just point out a few key tracks. It's one of those albums that just sounds best when heard in its entirety. However, the opening track 'Tears and Wine' is surely worth mentioning, as it contains some breathtaking saxophone work courtesy of Clive Jones. Although Jones sounds great throughout the album as he spices songs up with flutes and the sax, he really steals the show on the album's opener, getting things off to a strong start. Black Widow is an album that manages to be unpredictable, yet it never disappoints. At first, the slight change in sound from their previous album takes some time to digest, but once it does the infection begins to spread faster than a spider's venom paralyzes its victims. Whether it be the gang vocals on 'When My Mind was Young' or the funky vibe of 'Poser', the album is full of surprises. Some may think they were playing it safe after the occult-themed Sacrifice, but this assumption is rather misleading. While the band were hoping to reach a wider audience with this release, songs like the unconventional 'Mary Clark' or the risky 'Poser' suggest they were doing anything but playing it safe. It's another outstanding release by Black Widow that takes on a new direction musically, but without abandoning the band's highly original sound.
