A Class act
The first thing that crossed my mind on hearing the first few bars and vocal introducing itself was " Rufus Wainwright", a vocalist who I hugely admire so that's a good start! The more i listened I could hear other influences, the way the track has been crafted with some great changes had me thinking of the great Jeff Buckley - however, I have to be clear "Templeton" (unsure if this is a band or a solo artist - I find reviewing blind from the background biog gives a more authentic review) is not trying to be anything other than Templeton and this track is a great song,well written and well produced, beautiful vocal, great instrumentation well crafted. in a nutshell it hits all the right buttons and I cant find a single criticism, apart from the fact i think it could have been a bit longer - more like this and the right promotion and we should be seeing him/them getting to the top! It would be a crime for them not to - best thing Iv'e heard coming out of South Africa since Nelson Mandela!!

Travis You Not, But Templeton You Can Be
Travis You Not, But Templeton You Can Be, I think the best thing about this song is it has all the bits you want for a great tune, they just come in the wrong order, remember you have about 3 seconds in this remote switching generation, to grab someone's attention and hold it put the best thing out there right away and work around it, Cheers Bob

Not a bad song
I must admit for i am truly an honest person that this song is a good song. I feel that it could be way better. The instrumental is good and clear but i couldnt make out what you were saying. Now people who listen to your music on a regular basis may be able to understand you better. Thats fine if you only want to appeal to your local supporters. If you would like to appeal to a much broader audience and grow your fan base, as we all do, then you need to unnunciate your lyrics more clearly. Most people listen to music because it helps emotionally because they can relate to the lyrics and the mood of the music. If your audience can't understand what you're saying they can't relate to it. If they can't relate they really have no reason to purchase your music. 2ndly I feel what i could understand was confusing. When writing you want to tell a big story only condendsed. Which means you take the most vivid details and break them down into a hook and 2 verses. The hook sums up the theme of the verses. Think of a concept first then write what you feel. It can be 4 pages long and thats ok. Condense exactly what you're trying to say in those 4 pages into a hook and two verses maybe even a little bridge and you've got a great song. Its not easy but practice makes perfect. A thesaurus always helps me. Using words people know but dont hear often livens up your story and your audiences energy. You have a great voice and great music with a little more work you will be at the top of your game and ready for the world! This is only my opinion. You have something good and it can be great so go for it!

The tunes of this one are rather unique - which makes it somehow difficult to identify a hook line or even a flow. I don't say this is bad, but I fear it's hard to get some sort of airplay with this obviously ambitioned composition. The recording is fine though. In some scenes the guitars seem to compete with each other, a sad one versus a happy one. A good expression of the indifferent mood we're all in from time to time. Mixed feelings.
THE SONG GETS STRAIGHT INTO IT WITH A DREAMY CHORD SEQUENCE AND UNIQUE VOCAL STYLE I THINK YOU COULD HAVE STUMBLED ON A NEW GENRE HERE DREAM PHYSCHADELIC NICELY PRODUCED AND WITH SOME UNEXPECTEDC TWISTS IN THE SONG TO KEEP YOU LISTENING A GOOD PRODUCTION EFFORT WITH A GOOD VOCAL DELIVERY THAT HAS GOOD TENSION AND RELEASE WELL DONE GET THIS OUT THERE NOW
excellent successful work
excellent successful work, the essence from the original it is remained but in der same time sound new ,I`m really happy to listen something what I loved so wonderful represent so painted
Organic and real Rock
This music sounds like it means it. A pining vocal strains over a body-pinning groove with interlaced guitars and traditional Rock underpinnings. Beguilingly honest and fresh, deffo worth a listen if you haven't heard Templeton before

I loved the introduction of the song draws you instantly with a steady build to the main body of the song. Beautiful vocals and a very strong melody. The notations compliment your vocals very well it was a pleasure to listen too.

Beautiful emotive lead vocal, in the line of alternative male leads of the 90’s, easily switching lanes from major to minor, emo heartfelt, great interesting song parts, crisp instrumentation. A quick favorite!
