Stop Doing Bad Things

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The question with bands like Spitalfield is always the same: can they grow and mature without losing the edginess and passion that initially attracted their fan base? So far, the answer seems to be yes. Spitalfield's second album for the Victory label does a nice job of balancing enhanced sonics courtesy of alt rock star producer Ed Rose and sometimes intricate vocal harmonies with solid, gutsy guitar and straightforward songwriting. Nothing here will offend or disappoint those who fell in love with Remember Right Now, and those for whom this album constitutes an introduction to Spitalfield will almost certainly want to go back and fill in their collections with the ...

The question with bands like Spitalfield is always the same: can they grow and mature without losing the edginess and passion that initially attracted their fan base? So far, the answer seems to be yes. Spitalfield's second album for the Victory label does a nice job of balancing enhanced sonics courtesy of alt rock star producer Ed Rose and sometimes intricate vocal harmonies with solid, gutsy guitar and straightforward songwriting. Nothing here will offend or disappoint those who fell in love with Remember Right Now, and those for whom this album constitutes an introduction to Spitalfield will almost certainly want to go back and fill in their collections with the group's earlier releases. If Stop Doing Bad Things fails to yield any truly superlative high points, well, maybe that's just another way of saying that Spitalfield is one consistent band. Actually, "Tampa Bum Blues" does pack a distinctive wallop, and "Building a Better City by Design" sort of offers an extra-heavy dose of good fist-pumping fun as well. But none of the other tracks falls far behind those two in quality. Recommended.

    A big disappointment

    This cd definately does not live up to the potential that Spitalfield has. They are all talented musicans, but they jumped aboard the trendy ship. The entire album sounds like generic material used to attract the masses

    pretty good

    look this cd is not near as good as remember right now but that disk was awesome. stop doing bad things is pretty good and an easy listen. with all the screaming bands think they need to do spitalfield is a breath of fresh air that needs to be reconized. i bought this cd and would not get rid of it. well stay cool and don't work too hard.

    Good Stuff

    I bought this cd before i heard any of the songs off of it and i think it is really pretty good. As a fan of "Remember Right Now", I was hoping that their second cd would keep up their songwriting style but i think it actually progressed a lot. Buy this cd if you liked "Remember..." you won't be let down.

    does not live up

    alright this album is ok. but if you are planning to get it because you liked spitalfield fist full album then don't get it. it just does not live up to it at all. if i were to compare "Stop Doing Bad Things" to "Remember Right Now" i would have to say that it sucks huge big fat balls.
