Better Than Knowing Where You Are
Released: Oct 2006
Alternating between dreamy atmospheres and charging punk-pop moves, Spitalfield doles out teen catharsis in the form of wall-of-sound choruses and emotionally loaded lyrics. By the third song, "On the Floor," the Chicago quartet is pounding out seamless pop-rock marked by furious guitar riffs wriggling just under the surface. Better Than may appear to be simple, tailor-made anthemia for the Warped Tour Generation, but the kids eat up this stuff, and who can blame them? It hits like a sugar rush, but without the accompanying headache.
