Laurence holds nothing back on this high-powered set of numbers from the rock 'n' roll side of the blues. ''This album represents what I'm doing right now and these songs come across like when I play live.'' Indeed, the power and intensity refuse to drop at any point.

Produced - with all rock guns blazing - by Mike Zito and with a familiar bedrock of rhythm provided by Yonrico Scott (drums) and Charlie Wooton (bass) of Royal Southern Brotherhood, Temptation has a rich, rocking sound that demands attention. Laurence's guitar playing is exemplary and his voice seems tailor made for the genre.

Temptation is in similar style to Laurence's Ruf stable-mate Oli Brown. If Oli's style appeals (and it should!) then don't try and resist Temptation.
