The Line of Best Fit

Does any song on Good Mood Fool sound unique? No. But likeable? Yes. Likeable in that all too familiar, “Where have I heard this before?”, “Play it again, Sam” kind of way. Likeable in a great way.

Drowned in Sound

A world away from Temple's previous records, Good Mood Fool is a mixed bag in that’s revisionist in approach, but somehow topical. There’s much to recommend. 

60
DIY

Sure, these glossy throwbacks to eighties synth-pop, soul and funk may not be as innovative as anything on Temple’s previous albums, but he does them incredibly well, and it'd be a fool who doesn't give them a go.

Consequence of Sound

Temple is a perfectly capable soul singer with a penchant for luscious hooks, a musician who approaches his influences with an unbridled enthusiasm and almost entirely avoids the cheese and cliché found within them.
