"?listening to this makes me want to stand up and sing..." SPITALFIELD, taking their name from Jack The Ripper?s hometown, formed in 1998 and have two non-Soundscan releases under their belts along with plenty of live shows. The Chicago band is often described as "driving indie-pop rock" to "emo influenced punk with ultra-subtle hardcore undertones". SPITALFIELD keeps the rock flame alive by delivering a hugely infectious and emotionally effective album. From large venues to basements, they have performed with bands that range from JURASSIC 5 to THURSDAY including- HEY MERCEDES, THE MOVIELIFE, BRAND NEW and ALLISTER. They have amassed a large and loyal following in Chicago who are attracted to their heartfelt, sincere and contagious music. SPITALFIELD demonstrate that the punk spirit can have a future in pop music.

"I have owned this cd for well over a year now, and am still completely enamoured in it. This is one of my most favorite albums of all time. There is not a single weak song on Remember Right Now. This cd is enjoyable from start to finish, over, and over, and over again. I find this album to be comfort music for me. Whenever I need to get my mind off something, this album does the trick. Allow me to breakdown the songs and aspects of the album itself, starting with the first song.
1) Those Days You Felt Alive - What a way to kick off an album. All the tracks on this disc can be favorites, but this one stands out. I love nothing more than to roll my windows down, open my sunroof, and blare this out of my car's speakers. I find myself sometimes embarrassed, because I sing along to this song every time. It's melodic opening is heart-pumping. The lyrics are sung beautifully. I myself play bass, and the bass tones here are perfect and sublime. Superb. 10/10
2) Kill The Drama - This song has an excellent chorus. This song is one of the more upbeat songs on the album. The beat to this song is very driving and pumping. Great. 9/10
3) Five Days and Counting - This is a slower, more pensive song than the earlier two. By no means, however, does this mean it lacks in any way. You can really focus on the lyrics of this song. Beautiful. 10/10
4) I Love the Way She Said "L.A." - Lyrically, this song stands up to the rest of the album, and even takes steps forward. This is somewhat majestic, and beautiful all the same. The drum beat on this song keeps it going perfectly. Check out the vocal tones here. Upbeat. Anyone who has ever been in a long-distance relationship can relate to this one. Excellent. 10/10
5) Stolen From Some Great Writer - Another driving song with a great melody. The lyrics and vocals here are worth listening. It's a better-than-average song, until towards the end, when I believe the band really shows off some talent. What you are left with, is one of the best moments on the cd. Top-notch, but I feel like I can't give every song a 10, and this one I think deserves a 9.
6) In The Same Lifetime - This song is lots of listener's favorite. It's the slowest song on the album, but probably the most majestic. It take some listening to a few times I think to really appreciate. The vocals here are really well-done. However, unless I am in a certain kind of mood, I sometimes skip this track for the next, which is more upbeat. For that reason, I think, I give this song an 8/10.
7) Am I Ready? - Probably 60% of this song is chorus. That may be generous, but I don't mind. It is a great, catchy chorus, but the verses here are often over-looked. What a driving song! This song is best played at high volume. This was my most listened to song on the album when I first purchased it. I think I've worn it out a bit, but it's still fanastic. I give it a 9/10.
8) Fairweather Friend - Some may not like this song. However, I do. Lyrically, it's a little different from the others. It's more interpersonal, I think. The beat is unquestionably catchy. Still, I think, this song pales in comparison to the next. Good, but not great. 7/10.
9) You Can't Stop - Wow. Just listen to the whole song and see if I'm wrong. The song builds up rather quickly and leaves you hooked the entire duration. What a great song to sing-a-long to. The end of this song is the most heart-pumping on the album. 10/10. This song could end the album perfectly, but alas, just when you're left to take in a deep breath, the next song comes and you're challenged to give just one more burst of energy and test your vocals some more...
10) Make My Heart Attack - Easily one of the more sing-able songs on the album. It has a very catchy, although repetitive beat and melody. The bridge is one of the best on the album, aside from the one in "Stolen From Some Great Writer" Again, the bass is exceptional. Lyrically, fantastic. And yes, another, 10/10.
Overall this cd is one of the best I've ever listened to. I grade a cd on the whole, not just the sum of its parts. As a whole, this cd rocks. There is one cool innovation on this album itself that I've never seen before. On the cd itself, one will find the saying, "You felt alive like a motion picture. It's just a matter of where you are when you're awake. When you fall asleep this music will end. Forget everything. Your dreams will remember right now." Reading through the lyrics in the book, you will find highlighted certain lyrics. These highlighted lyrics from each song, in the standard track listing order, form this phrase that you see on your cd. Kinda cool. That's all. Buy the cd."

"victory is known, in my opinion atleast, for churning out s*itty fake "emo" bands like taking back sunday and silverstein by the truckload. so when i heard spitalfield was off vr, i was skeptical about getting "remember right now", despite the catchy single "i loved the way she said LA". finally, one day while I was at tower, i decided to give it a shot. it was only 10 bucks, so i figured, "what the hell"?, it might be pretty good. to make a not so long story shorter, i put it on and never once thought twice about my purchase (never once thought twice????). this is one quality album, using pop-punk style guitars, emotive lyrics and pop hooks to create a 10 track masterpiece. I can honestly say that there isn't one track i like less than another, and i love um' all. if i had to compare them to another group, i'd say the vocals are kinda like new found glory meets rufio (high pitched), the lyrics are jimmy eat world-ish and the melodies are sorta like knockout (rip) meets cauterize meets toyko rose. yep, its a great album, and i highly adivise you to get it. even if u don't like victory records (which i don't), this is one band you can't pass up on. "remember right now", its oh so good."
