5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing, provocative, soaring sounds, 10 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Conditions (Audio CD)
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!

"Sweet Disposition sounds like it's been sung by sentient beings in orbit above the earth"

Thank goodness I already love the band/album because if I'd read that ridiculously overwrought and pretentious review it would've turned me right off them!

I'd like to point out that it should read 'BEING SUNG' not 'been' sung! Otherwise you are using 2 different tenses in the same sentence! Why can't anyone spell or use grammar correctly anymore - does no one go to school these days..... The reason I'm being picky is because the review is so pretentious and yet it's not even grammatically correct!

There are people out there who TYPE IN CAPS or Capitalise Every Word, carn't spel at all, or use txt spk constantly, and you're jumping on this guy for using incorrect tense? Yes, his review was a little pretentious, but you must be really bored to go around picking holes in reviews.

The same applies to those `picking holes' in those whom comment on reviews.
I guess that applies to me too----dang!

Pretty sure that should read '...those who comment on reviews'. ;-)
