Twelve songs isn't enough. Better Than Knowing Where You Are would be even better with more. More, more, more, more. Spitalfield has ditched the weird song titles and become more abrupt. The album is a lyrical masterpiece. Not only that, but musically, it is totally unexpected. Spitalfield is suddenly hitting the power chords. It's amazing. Simply amazing.
"On The Floor" has Mark singing his heart out, just like the other eleven songs. "Won't Back Down" feels like Mark Rose is in your head telling you about his day to a soundtrack and normally you wouldn't care, but it's so peaceful that you become drowsy due to the softness of his voice. "Curtain Call" sings about change and ending and again, Mark Rose sings with such enormity. Musically, the guitars are very well collaborated. The drumming is superb and builds the excitement through the song. The music brings you in. The vocals keep you in.
The album is not a "blast in your stereo" album. It's a "play on your headphones, laying on your back, relaxing, while you read your book" album. It's so peaceful and powerful. It's just amazing. I know I've said it before but, it is, it just is.
