Temples have modified their sound for their sophomore release. Gone are any jangly guitars. In their place synthesizers swirl and handle the more melodious parts of the songs. There's still a tinge of 60's psychedelia but now there's a splash of 80's new wave synth pop, too. With a more one-dimensional musical style (in addition to the emphasis on synthesizers the drums play a diminished role, relegated mostly to flat slaps of the snare drum) the album has a more one-dimensional palette to it, making it difficult for any song to really stand out. It's listenable enough-the songs are likeable even after multiple listenings-but it seems a bit of the musical promise they displayed on Sun Structures has been diluted on Volcano.
