Temptation Dice review

Rated 4/5

The View released their new single Temptation Dice through 1965 Records as a 7” and download only – and it rocks, as usual. Taken from their second critically acclaimed album, Which Bitch? [released in February], the single was recorded at Monnow Valley studios in Wales during the summer of 2008 as part of the album sessions with acclaimed producer Owen Morris, who also worked on their platinum selling debut album Hats Off To The Buskers. As ever with The View, catchy guitar licks are placed very much to the fore (the song has a stonking central riff), while a catchy hand-clap beats ensures that it contains an infectious energy. Kyle Falconer, meanwhile, re-establishes the cheeky vocal style we loved so much on the band’s earlier hits such as Same Jeans. All in all, there’s a lot to like.
