Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible debut for an incredible band, 25 Sept. 2013
This review is from: The Temperance Movement (Audio CD)
I first saw The Temperance Movement live at the Greenbelt festival, and was blows away. rocking, pounding music, really tight, a fantastic show. If you get a chance, see them live, because they are just stunning.

The question was, could they put that energy and power into a recording?

Oh yes.

There are solid stonking rock tracks, there are quieter, more thoughtful tracks. They achieve both with passion and feeling.

My favorite track? That was a challenge. Normally an album contains a few poorer tracks and a few stand out pieces. This is an exception - I love every track. There are none that I want to skip over. But I think Serenity is just winning the favorite award, partly because it starts quiet, and builds beautifully. It finishes the album off superbly.

I can hear influences from Bon Jovi, Led Zep, Cream - but I suspect that the real influence is from the music that drive these groups - the blues, and the power drive that the likes of Jimi Hendrix added to this.

This has to be one of the best debut albums for a long time. Just go and buy it, you won't regret this.
