|Really good. In your face and loud. While I love ACBTLD very much, some times it felt that a lot of the tracks were pushing Geoff's vocals into the background. The production on that album didn't bother me much, because I understood what Thursday was going for with that tone. But on Common Existence, the production seems a lot more crisp and Geoff's vocals are front and center, and this album is produced by Fridmann again. |
Early stand outs include Friends In The Armed Forces, Love Has Led Us Astray, and You Were The Cancer (the screaming on this song is some of the best screaming the band has ever done). Beyond The Visible Spectrum is also fabulous. On first listen, it is definitely a step up from ACBTLD. Thursday fans will eat this up, and if you were somehow disappointed by the last album, this will win you back.
