I tasted a hundred friends of mine on your lips, I never saw a single sunset on that strip - what a way to start off a record! Finally - the day has arrived! Spector has released their debut album Enjoy It While It Lasts in the UK today, and I feel like a 12 year old school girl who just had her first kiss! I have been waiting for this record for months and months.....and now I have it in my hot little hands!
It is not very often I look forward to a record release like this - with as much excitement and enthusiasm as a fat kid in a candy store! This is what it was like when I was a kid sitting in my Dad's studio listening to The Beatles records while he explained what the lyrics meant, and I would just stair at the album covers mesmerized by the artwork , and that musky smell of vinyl was forever embedded into my soul - this is how I fell in love with music. This new Spector record has stirred up all those childlike feelings - every once in a while it still happens - I can forget about the complete state of shit modern / popular music is in and remember how it feels to love music!
I cannot explain why Spector has totally stolen my heart - maybe it's that flavor of Brit-pop I love so much, or the great song writing, and the fun nature of the songs, the corkey personalities of the band members and their suits...I am on the second listen of the record and I just love it for all that it is! Each song being as good as the next, it has met every expectation I had - it is a perfect debut record! Well done Spector!
Hope to see Enjoy It While It Lasts released in the states soon - until then US kids.....you'll have to obtain it through other means than the norm......
