Gospel never grabbed me, in all honesty. Still think I'll check this out.

Love this line: "I'm not in a huge rush to choose which effort is more impressive. I'm content to take Oh, Common Life with me for the ride, peeling back more layers and discovering more nuances along the way."

I feel like everyone (including myself) was too busy comparing this to gospel to really just enjoy how awesome these songs are. There's really no way to say which one is better to me since I've had this for a week and gospel for 3 years. I'm just happy the band released another album. Love the album.

This is a perfect review for the record. A lot to digest on the record and I have felt people have been more concerned with comparing it to Gospel then actually letting it fully sink in. Both incredible records. I'm not sure I have ever been more obsessed with a bands consistent catalog from Bonfires EP, Gospel into Oh, Common Life. Well done gents.

Just bought it on iTunes and will probably pick up a copy when I see them in April. As always, they seem to be able to say exactly how i'm feeling. Fantastic record.

Monster of a review- incredible job, Thomas. After multiple listens, this album really hits home and shows how personal and mature the band can be. This is the night to Gospel's day, mixed with In Reverie and a hint of Infinity on High. Highly addictive.

Accurate review. They got better and sadder. I like this a lot, but hopefully they drop a full on power pop fountains of Wayne esque EP one day...

kinda my goal at the end there was to hopefully push people away from comparing the two records and just listen to this one as its own thing

this band, i feel, is doomed to never really receive the recognition it deserves in terms of pure success. whether it's selling albums or drawing fans to shows, they are right among the best of their peers - the bands they grew up with that came into relevance around 2009 or so. why that's the case isn't something i fully understand, but i hope fireworks continues to make records for a while. it's exciting to watch them develop.

So basically, it's really hard to review a definitive grower? agree.

This album's biggest 'flaw' is being a follow up to Gospel.
