The Temperance Movement music album review White Bear

Music Album Review: The Temperance Movement - "White Bear" (8/10)

Here is the long-awaited follow-up to this British quintet’s self-titled debut. The Temperance Movement's White Bear is a continuation of a trail they began packed with heavy riffs, chunky chords and full-on soulful vocals. Lead singer Phil Campbell delivers with the gusto of a Paul Rodgers or Dan McCafferty. This is rock & roll for modern ears. Many of these songs are radio-ready and feature strong arrangements and heady wordplay. Check out the dirty slide guitar on “Get Yourself Free” or the ponderous “I Hope I’m Not Losing My Mind” for proof.

Score: 8 out of 10
