CD REVIEW: White Bear by The Temperance Movement

After a break of three years, The Temperance Movement are back with a bluesy rock album that’ll see you through until 2017.

The time spent honing the music after their debut album dropped in 2013 has been well spent, and the British four-piece developed a voice that is rock ‘n roll, blues and jazz.

Opening track Three Bulleits sets the tone for the album in a wonderful laid back, bluesy way – while Modern Massacre is the tune all proper rock fans will enjoy the most. It’s got all the flavours of a song that know it can burst into life at any moment and melt your face off.

The only thing could be the downfall of White Bear is the versatility of the musicians. At times they almost fall victim to their own ability – a jack of all trades but a master of none.

However, Phil Campbell and his crew are wiser than that, and deliver what could be one of the standout albums of 2017 already.

The band are currently six dates into their UK tour, bringing their sound to the lucky few who will still be able to hear them in smaller venues.

In short words

Criteria - 90%



As long as the Temperance Movement can keep the time in between albums to less than three years, the momentum that will build behind this band will surely propel them to bigger and better things.
