Enter Shikari - Common Dreads (2009) Retail CD
By any standard known to man Enter Shikari are a great little band.
I have already expressed my enthusiasm elsewhere in these venerable
pages for their 2007 debut 'Take To The Skies'. A stunning first showing.
They make a big, big sound but the unbridled energy is always
tempered by a remarkably mature and refined musical sensibility.
The fifteen tracks which comprise their new release 'Common Dreads'
create a veritable powerhouse of crackling, ribald electricity.
With 'Juggernauts' they strike a marvelous balance between
stirring anthemic harmonies, naive but warm-hearted social
commentarymore… and convincingly calibrated hard-edged rock.
This ability to bring potentially conflicting elements together
and produce credible and hugely enjoyable soundscapes is a real gift.
'Wall' is another powerhouse track. Mr Rolfe's drums are, here
and elsewhere on the album, the glue which keeps it all together.
'Zzzonked' delivers a small nod in Prodigy's direction with the
cocky but affectionate knowledge that they are the new kids
on this particular block. Fresh paint on an old facade.
'No Sleep Tonight', not unlike 'Jonny Sniper' on their previous
release, has a killer chorus and a very fine vocal performance
from Mr Reynolds. This lad really can belt out a good tune!
'Gap In The Fence' is as fine a song as we are
likely to encounter for the rest of the year.
It's all good. Nothing wasted. Nothing to throw to the dogs.
Blissfully brilliant !
