CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

A sophisticated, epic, slow burn of an album, The Temper Trap finds the band taking the creative long view, and updating its bombastic guitar rock with a moody, somewhat synth-oriented sound.

50
NME

This is a vision-free second album that sounds like a band who have nothing close to ‘Sweet Disposition’ in their arsenal. 

45
Paste

The only thing that The Temper Trap’s self-titled album proves is that they may have been a one-hit wonder all along.

40
No Ripcord

When it comes to developing and honing the craft of songwriting to present a signature sound with a variety of ideas, The Temper Trap fall short.

40
PopMatters

Their instrumentation is not potent enough to overwhelm their poor lyrics, and their lead singer hasn’t figured out how to use his voice in a way that moves masses.

I criminally overrate the first two Temper Trap LPs because of pure nostalgia. I am sorry.

(at least I attempted to give them realistic ratings)
