So refreshing to hear a band playing their instruments and giving that 60's and 70's vibe. Cracking debut album that doesn't disappoint at any level. Track by track review is as follows: A strong opening with single Shelter Song, catchy 60's fender lead throughout and a great Chorus 8/10. Track 2 is the album title Sun Structures with a booming deep beat and music that would hold up well n a Dracular Movie 7/10. The Golden Throne is the most catchy so far and deserves a 9/10. Keep in the Dark has a beat similar to Grahem Goldman's " Never let her slip away ". But for me, a slight drop in class so a 6/10. Mesmerise is another average song so another 6/10 but things dramatically improve from here. Move With The Seasons is the perfect song for me, this is so Tame Impala meets Brian Wilson, perfect harmonic beautiful sound which gets 10/10! Colours Of Life and A Question Isn't Answered are good and both deserve 7/10. Another Album highlight is the great The Guesser , so Sixties in vocals and keys 9/10. Test of Time has a melodic Chorus and deserves an 8/10 and the epic Sand Dance has an Arabian sound with a touch of Tame Impala again 8/10. I like the fact they changed the tempo storm the slow acoustic Fragments Light 7/10. Overall 9/10. Neil from Delta High.
Right from the start you get hooked by this gem of an album. If the Last Shadow Puppets had babies with The Bees then Temples are the result and what a jolly family it would be. This has been a great little find and was purchased after hearing Shelter Song on BBC 6 Music. The thumping drums, the catchy guitar riffs and the hauntingly beautiful singing will grab you and not let you out of its grip. The first 8 tracks could all be singles as far as I'm concerned which makes this is an 'absolutely must buy' for all (indie) music lovers.
