A uniquely tuned voice, lead singer Dougy Mandagi could be one of the most exciting prospects to emerge from Australia in years. Supported by a great outfit that gives The Temper Trap an atmospheric, polished sound, they are without doubt my favourite band to emerge in 2009. They were amazing at Glastonbury, then again at Love Box, and now the album's out and it's bloody terrific. Sweet Disposition sounds like it's been sung by sentient beings in orbit above the earth, it feels so expansive and universal. Love Lost makes hairs stand up on your arms and stop what you're doing to listen. Fader storms down the highway like a drag racer powered by pure willpower, with some wonderful backing vocals.
Sometimes the lyrics seem slightly bonkers, and more than a little obtuse, but with a sound this great - I don't mind a bit!

I came to the music of The Temper Trap, as I'm sure many others have, off the back of `Sweet Disposition' and it has quickly become one of my favourite albums of the year. In fact it is never out of my stereo at the moment. From the opening track `Love Lost' you know you are in for a real treat and this album doesn't let you down at all. This band have their own unique sound and the singer has very distinctive and original vocals, but if you enjoy bands like Death Cab For Cutie then I recommend this album and think it will be right up your street. `Sweet Disposition' is a very strong track and the way it builds with the underlying jangly guitar really adds to it's impact and power. But more subtle tracks like `Soldier On' have real nuance and show the breadth of this bands talents. I also love the chorus of `Science of Fear` which keeps driving the song forward and makes you want to sing along with it full belt. The last track `Drum Song' is instrumental and whilst raw, is a great way to end this album. I could quite easily wax lyrical about this album but suffice it to say that it is original, has excellent song writing and would well benefit you to take a listen. It is one of those life enhancing albums and I can't recommend it enough.

I'm new to this band: rather late, I know! What a great album with Sweet Disposition and Rest as stand out tracks among many other good ones. Hardly a wrong 'un on it. Try it, it's not expensive and it's a great addition to any collection.

Delivered today, I am now on my second play. A chance purchase on the strength of a TV ad sample, and the fact that they have at least been around for a while. I do not know how to describe this lot? You can't really find a 'bag' to put them in. I have 'visions' of the vocals being copied from the Bee Gees impersonating the Commodores, and then being menaced by a nice bit of 'rock' guitar! They are not 'Indie' or 'Alternative', neither are they 'Pop'. You can't really say that they can't fit anywhere, because they are 'original', cos they ain't. Having said all that, they do shove a load of familiar things into their songs, and come out with an album that is quite listenable to an Indie-type, like me. The type of album where I have given seven of the 10 tracks a rating of 7/8 out of ten. Best to give them a listen before you buy.

I first heard the track 'Soldier On' when I was watching an episode of Home and Away, and went on Channel 5's message board to see if anyone knew who had recorded it. A couple of kind people pointed me in the right direction, and since acquiring the album there has hardly been a day when I haven't listened to it. It's brilliant!

I came across The Temper Trap about 4 months ago when they released their debut single. Had the new album about a month now, as i ordered it direct from oz. If you like a band where all members can 'really' play their instruments and adapt from acoustic to stadium rock at the click of a finger - then you will love the temper trap.

Def one for the future !

Liked track on Center Parcs ad (Sweet Disposition). Bought the album on the strength of it. Now wonder how I The Temper Trap could have passed me by in the first place. Really pleased I bought the album instead of just the one track.

It's a shame this band is being compared to Coldplay, because the Temper Trap differ in the way that they don't make me want to gouge my eyes out. Perhaps a rare band in the genre of soft-indie-pop-rock-whatever you call it these days, the Temper Trap don't particularly offer something different and unique, they have done something far more important and made a likeable album. Far too often in this genre we hear the same thing again and again, and it's dull, and heartless. "Conditions" just manages to break away from the mould, and there are a handful of songs that you just might listen to sometime next year, rather than forgetting about the band entirely.

The highlight is "Sweet Disposition" which is probably the reason why most of us will buy the album. Nothing else comes close to this, but there is a consistency throughout the album, the band has a very good chemistry, and there is enough there to keep you listening. Other standout songs being "Love Lost", "Soldier On", and "Science of Fear".

All in all, this isn't anything groundbreaking, but the Temper Trap are still one of the best new bands to emerge this year, and "Conditions" is not simply another disposable indie album that we'll forget about next month.
