This album is infectious! Closure In Moscow pull of one of the best Alternative releases of the year with First Temple . Track after track of hooks, and catchy melodies that make you want more and more. First Temple sets a high standard for anything Closure In Moscow release in the future.
Closure in Moscow have created a near-perfect album here. Catchiness is not sacrificed for technicality, and there is a strong sense of experimentation that exists in song structures that still have an appearance of conventional. The album is a dichotomy in itself of a band that is unabashedly catchy and unafraid to chase different influences at the same time.
If Closure in Moscow could just keep up the energy throughout the whole album, it would be an unforgettable trip. The highlights are incredible songs, but packed in between are filler songs that bring the album down.
