Best Of 2012: #10
#10 - Spector - Enjoy It While It Lasts
Enjoy it while it lasts, you say? Oh, I will! Moving into the top ten now, with an absolute monster of a debut album! (Not my favourite debut album of the year, mind, but still up there!) Featuring twelve fantastic pop songs, Spector prove themselves as masters of catchy, guitar pop filled with melodies and thousands of sing-along moments. Just take one listen to Celestine or Chevy Thunder, and you'll be hooked instantly. There are also a couple of slight sidesteps - the smooth, electronic-based Grey Shirt And Tie, or the slight breather (which you'll probably need, coming after Celestine!) Grim Reefer, which may unfortunately be the weakest song, but still is undoubtedly up there. Every song here is purposely designed to have the crowds eating out of their hands. And they deliver such tunes in spades.
RECOMMEND: No Adventure, Celestine, Never Fade Away
LOW POINTS: Upset Boulevard, Grim Reefer
