    Committed to tape with the help of Rich Turvey, on ‘Now Or Whenever’ Spector strike between the two eras of their sound, tempering all out alternative bravado with yearningly bittersweet baritone-crooning ballads.

    Now Or Whenever doesn’t feel like natural progression when held up against Moth Boys and earlier debut Enjoy It While It Lasts from 2012, but its ability to have you singing along in very little time at all is an impressive quality.

    ‘Now or Whenever’ is more of a grow-er than a show-er but has much to show for itself.

    So much is happening on Now Or Whenever, but it somehow adds up to even less than the sum of its parts.

An American Warehouse in London definitely the stand-out track. Expand

    Not the heavy chugging of the first album, but going in a synth 80s rock vibe.

    An easy and accessible listen with a classic rock vibe, which deals with the gen z problems though.

    If this album doesn't get many user reviews it's not cos it's bad it's just because it's nothing noteworthy, nothing stands out. The writingIf this album doesn't get many user reviews it's not cos it's bad it's just because it's nothing noteworthy, nothing stands out. The writing is mediocre and the classic rock sound feels especially worn out on this one. Expand
