"...Roy Montgomery writes on the inner sleeve of Temple IV that it was inspired by a trip to the Northern Guatemalan rain forest where he endured physical discomforts and attempted to come to terms with the death of a love. Though its nice to have a concrete description, those words are unnecessary. Temple IV is like an opera in a foreign language with no translation, where through the music alone, the listener is able to ascertain what the circumstances were, what the mood was and other background information... The lush songs on Temple IV are brimming with an aching sadness, violent anger and exhausting relief. This intensely beautiful album does not come as a surprise... the ravishing feedback on Temple IV expresses more than most words."
