Best New Band/Album in Many Years!!, 24 Sept. 2013
Within 10 secs of listening to the pre-release of the first song, Only Friend, I realised that this was a big find... Having bought the album upon release a month or so later and listened to it several times, I have found myself a new favourite rock band. Whether it is dirty, sleazy blues-rock a la Only Friend or something far more nuanced - and there are several more contemplative tracks - the Temperance Movement delivered in spades. If you - like me - enjoy a lot of old, classic blues, rock and soul - Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Fleetwood Mac (the Peter Green version...), Howlin' Wolf, Sam & Dave, JJ Cale, Aerosmith etc, then this is a gem! This is old-school, true rock, served dirty with extra helpings of swagger, sleaze and soul. The best new band since some time in the 70s. Enjoy!!
