Album Review: Forever Isn't Long Enough by Alfie Templeman
Fantastic, Based on 2 Critics
The Line of Best Fit - 90 Based on rating 9/10
Mini albums are becoming more and more prominent these days, and where some fall flat without a clear direction, others master the style and deliver something phenomenal. Templeman describes Forever Isn't Long Enough as "…the best representation of what I'm about. Each song is different but linked," and the album is exactly that. Standout songs on the album are "Wait, I Lied" and the infectious title track "Forever Isn't Long Enough", both oozing generous amounts of soul, personality, and unforgettable hooks.
Alfie Templeman's new project 'Forever Isn't Long Enough' is an eight track mini album jam-packed with energy. Having already crafted four EPs to his name, this 18-year-old artist is unstoppable. Drawing inspiration from jazz greats John McLaughlin and Miles Davis to The Weeknd and Harry Styles, the album merges a variety of genres. Indie pop shines on the surface level but Templeman's jazz and funk influences are utterly present too.
