The title track “Love Maze” features a heart-piercing lead, and impeccable backing harmonies; tender sweeties “Let Me Be the One” and “Passion” travel the same romantic road. Most prefer the Temprees doing dripping, slow ballads, and there’s not enough of them on this multi-styled, rag-tag disc. Selections like “Something So Right” and “Come On Y’all” might not appeal to those who enjoy southern soul. The Temprees emulate the Stylistics on “Trust In Me,” and “People Make the World Go ‘Round,” featuring their clear vocals and the Stax gang at their finest.
