Maurice Mattei & the Tempers
"Mattei knows how to write a good song…Roots Rock combined with thoughtful, poetic lyrics…Mattei's songs are works of art…intense."
- Rootstime Belgium
"With the full-band approach, the songs become more animated and distinct. And the arrangements are superb. There's a sort of Garage-meets-Roots vibe (perhaps Mattei's original intent for the songs all along) that is quite powerful…Mattei's vocals are especially intense and, with the group's circular grind behind him, he seems to have really taken to the idea of digging into these songs."
- Mike Breen, CityBeat Magazine
"There are skiffle tunes and ballads, bluesy Rolling Stones-like songs and '60s Rock. The only criticism is Mattei should have arranged his wonderful songs with that rock beat years ago. The sound is so good one might wonder what took him so long."
- Rick Bird, The Cincinnati Post
