The thing about Enter Shikari is their total determination to be themselves, add in their young creative and idealistic views and you have a recipe for greatness. Common Dread is a huge step for the band being the follow up to the succesful debut album 'Take To the Skys' but it is most definitely in the right direction. Always keen to give the fans a good deal the album has 15 tracks of brilliance even the intro speaking track Common Dreads has thought and style.
The band have done the impossible by mixing the best of every cool electronic affect every devised and melded it with their tuneful melodies, trance rhythms and hardcore vocals while staying true to their punk values with some tremendous lyrics. I can't gush enough about this album.
Of course Enter Shikari can also sing, with several of the band members able and willing to take turns on different songs. The Band always produce a collective feel in their live performances and they replicate that nicely on Current Dreads with a harmonious feel to the output which comes across very strongly. Not afraid to experiment Enter Shikari delight and entertain on every song, there is not one track that fails the test.
