This review is from: The Temperance Movement (Audio CD)
Brash, bluesy southern rock from a British band? Well it's been done before with great success by Humble Pie, The Faces, Bad Company and others. Phil Campbell's strong vocal performances plus the tight playing of the rest of The Temperance Movement make this a strong and enjoyable debut. The two openers 'Only Friend' and 'Ain't No Telling' set the pace for the harder stuff, but then we have 'Pride' a decent rock ballad with delicate vocals and guitar to show this band also has a softer side. There is some lovely slide guitar on 'Chinese Lanterns' and 'Serenity' and lots of other treats on this fine album. I expect these guys to be an impressive live act on the strength of what I've heard here. If you like country or southern rock, then you'll love this. Recommended.
