ON DISC

Spitalfield
Remember Right Now
Victory Records

If you’ve never heard of Spitalfield, that’s probably because you’re not a Grade 9 girl recovering from her first breakup who craves cheesy, emotional pop-punk. Their debut disc Remember Right Now is yet another installment in the saturated pop-punk genre.

The album starts off on a good note with the catchy track “Those Days You Felt Alive.” However, the rest essentially contains nine inferior clones of the first song. While there are small traces of musical potential throughout, the generic voice of lead singer Mark Rose fails to distinguish the band from any other pop-rock act.

Remember Right Now is intended to pull on the impressionable heartstrings of 14-year-olds who are confused with their relationships and seeking answers or comfort from rockers who are probably three years older than they are. Spitalfield satisfies these important needs with trivial metaphors and a very familiar sound.

—Paul Leishman
