Not Their Best

"I was really excited for the realease of this Templars CD but was somewhat dissapointed when I heard it. It is good, but "good" by Templars standards isn't all that great. And not all that great by Templars standards is still far superior to other Oi! coming out these days. Compared to their last full length album "Omne Datum Optimum" the Templars have slowed down a little bit. This new one isn't nearly as heavy as their last release, and the style is a little more Rock N Roll, and it has less of that early RAC/Oi! style. Carl's vocals are a little rougher than in past releases, but they still sound good with the music. All in all, I'd say any fan of the Templars should go ahead and add this to their collection. But if you're just getting started with this group, check out some of their past releases, namely the aforementioned "Omne Datum Optimum" or even their EP "1118-1312" which is still one of my favorites."
