Dark Knight


IT IS pretty much undisputed that stalwart soul singer Beverley Knight is one of the finest British voices of the past decade.
So will somebody please write her some decent songs.
Although 100% sees the singer running at full capacity vocally, trilling and warbling and belting magnificently, her self-penned songs here are staid, stagnant and never a showcase for Knight's singing abilities.
Each track is obvious, sounding like Michael Jackson number circa Off The Wall shamelessly regurgitated - soul with no soul.
100%? Pffff - this is more like 35% or 40%.
