With a self-deprecating title such as Enjoy It While It Lasts there's a sense that Spector are not taking anything for granted. The long-awaited debut album from the five-piece is hit-heavy, fuelled by big choruses made to sing out loud to fill the vacant gap left by the Kaiser Chiefs when they decided to become arena rock.
In Spector you don't just get catchy indie pop, you do get anthems too. Then there's the production, the reason behind the album taking so long to surface. Six producers bring different elements to the music where many influences blend as synths are as dominant as guitars.
Enjoy It While It Lasts is essentially an album full of singles, in a good way. Where 'Chevy Thunder' is fierce, 'Grey Shirt & Tie' flows with an air of nostalgia in a dream-like motion, and then you get to the epic 'Never Fade Away', so fanastically simple and obvious, you think you have heard it before. In between the tales of fun and flocking there's blood and guts laid bare where you feel that expectations of a joyful youth were not always met.
It's a soundtrack to a twenty-somethings past, a hopeless romantic character is at the forefront of this story ('What You Wanted', 'Lay Low', 'True Love (For Now)') but the struggles of teenage life are well documented too ('Friday Night', 'Don't Ever Let It End', 'No Adventure', 'Twenty Nothing') whilst you will have 'Celestine' in your head for days as its memo reads 'effortlessly catchy' and 'Grim Reefer' is delicate and honesty with a wiff of darkness that blows up in to an epic arena filling gust of synths and heartbreak.
Some will find Spector annoying but those with short attention spans and pine for instant indie pop, Enjoy It While It Lasts is your album of the year.
