als ich "common existence" dann das erste mal in den player legte,kam mit dem opener ein absolut typisches thursday-stück aus den boxen und ich dachte mir,dass sich wohl nicht viel geändert hätte.dann kam track zwei und ich war nicht mehr so sicher.der sound schien irgendwie überladen und extrem zermixt,hier ein fiepen,dort ein brei aus drums und bass und keys und gitarren und nochmal gitarren und mehrstimmiger gesang und und und...und ich dachte,na servus.irgendwie blieb dieses gemisch auch bei den weiteren tracks so anstrengend und ich beschloss,die scheibe erst mal auf eis zu legen und mir einzugestehen,dass ich das nicht so mochte.
eine woche später zwang ich mich dann doch,der platte eine zweite chance zu geben und bummmmm-da war es! das monster an produktion und an ideen legte seine fratze ab und es offenbarte sich eine wunderbare platte,die sich bei aufmerksamen hinhören als absolutes meisterwerk präsentierte.
ALLES, was man an thursday schätzt, ist auf dem album bis ins letzte detail ausgereizt-tolle melodien,brachiales screaming im stil von bane und anderen new school hc-bands, fette gitarren , ein drummer,der am rande des wahnsinns sein kit malträtiert... einfach genial,wenn man solchen sound mag!
KAUFEN UND LIEBEN (LERNEN) !
Dieses Album kann ich absolut empfehlen und jeden Thursdayfan ans Herz legen!
Thursday leave the limitations of the rock genre and invent something that is new and impressiv at the same time. The songs are very emotional, emphatic. The atmosphere is getting so tight as one could cut it with a knife. None of the tracks leaves the listener cold. This makes clear: The artists have indeed something to say and they are doing it in a unique manner. The album can neither be compared to other thursday-albums nore with any other band. Therefore I give 5 stars - and I am giving 5 stars only in exceptional cases for exceptional albums.
ich bin auch echt kein guter kritiker.ne schlechte würd ich auch nich abgeben,obwohl ich von vielen aktuellen scheiben meiner lieblingsbands ziemlich enttäuscht wurde.na egal..
`commom existence` gehört definitiv nich dazu.ich bin auf jeden fall sehr überrascht,dass sie nach dem hammer-album `a city by the light divided` genauso stark nachlegen.was ich nich wirklich für möglich gehalten hab. man entdeckt bei jedem durchlauf wieder irgendwas neues.skippen is auch nich nötig...also werd ich jez keinen track besonders hervorheben.die scheibe funtioniert auf jeden fall als gesamtwerk,was für mich eigentlich am wichtigsten is..
naja bla bla.ich könnt noch ne menge schreiben.aber ich belass es mal dabei.ich hab auch nur geschrieben,weil noch niemand sonst geschrieben hat.
muss sich sowieso jeder selbst `n bild machen.soll nurn kleiner anreiz sein..
auf jeden fall jute mukke!
5 punkte,ohne zu überlegen

Fast-forward 8 years. Here we are: Thursday's fifth full-length release. I enjoyed "War All the Time" and "A City by the Light Divided" about the same as "Full Collapse," but when I first popped this in, I was astounded. I don't think Thursday has changed THAT much. They're still doing what they always did best - being aggressive while maintaining good and interesting melodies, lyrics and song structures, all while pushing the boundaries.
"Resuscitation of a Dead Man" has done what the opening songs on every other album have done - start off with an instant blast of intense energy. This and the next three tracks easily sound like they could have been on Full Collapse or War all the Time; the only difference is maybe a tinge of keyboards filling out the sound. I think the keyboards really add a diverse element to the band that it was missing before. I love the short keyboard "solo" in "You Were the Cancer" and really can't say that it ruins any track.
"Time's Arrow" is Thursday's attempt at an acoustic semi-ballad. It marks a deviation from the rest of the record and seems like their most experimental song to date, with a psychedelic middle instrumental section with swirling vocals and "backwards" sounding acoustic strumming. I have to say, it's one of my least favorite songs on here, but it's still pretty good, and I like how the band is experimental with new approaches. It also provides some breathing room and time to get excited for the next rush of energy.
My personal favorite song on the album is "Beyond the Visible Spectrum." It adds a lot of keyboards to the main chorus line, which some people may puke at the thought of, but you have to hear it to really understand that it is very well done. It's a fast keyboard melody with all other instruments still remaining, and the verse builds up a perfect development to it. Another one of my favorite tracks is "Circuits of Fever," which has a bit slower pace than most of their songs and an irregular structure, but has a unique atmosphere with echoed vocals, and keyboards. I think my third favorite track is "As he Climbed the Dark Mountain," which blends a perfect amount of aggression (some screams still linger here) with great melody and atmosphere.
Most people are not going to agree with what I am about to say, and that's truly understandable, but, I think this is Thursday's best album so far. I loved Full Collapse, and "Understanding" had the sheer power to make me a dedicated fan from the start, but here I think they have further established their sound. There will always be people who will like nothing but Full Collapse, and always want another one. They're way beyond that now. Bands don't make the same album twice, and it's still there if you want to listen to it. I still think several songs on this album still have a Full Collapse tinge to them, but there are also several songs that assure the listener they have evolved, just like any band will do. All I know is I have been more addicted to this album than any previous one. I played almost nothing else for the first two weeks, and I think I've already listened to this more than "War" or "City". Thank you Thursday for a superb release and I hope there is more to come.
So if you like Thursday, don't even think about it--just get it. And if you don't have Kill the House Lights, get that too. Not only are there some good songs on it (and some good live versions too) but the DVD documentary is worth it just for that. Just make sure you get the version with the DVD; there is a version that is just the audio CD.
Many of those bands are gone, or irrelevant or changed their sound to "move more units".
But Thursday, with Common Existence is:
Still intense (if not more than ever).
Still a dynamic sound.
Still emotional (literally, not some Spin magazine lingo)
Thursday is still Thursday and that pleases me.
You can hear elements of the punk, hardcore and progressive rock that has always been a part of Thursdays sound since they first emerged from the basements of New Jersey. There are high-energy tracks destined to be concert favorites like "Resurrection of a Dead Man" and "Friends in the Armed Forces." I found myself singing "For The Workforce, Drowning" (one of, if not the best songs Thursday ever wrote) after I listened to "Resurrection of a Dead Man" for the first time. It's the perfect way to start off the album. From the beginning you get a shot of energy, a sense of urgency. The mixture of hardcore and punk is back and it's a little dirtier than before. Thursday has found a way to take the two genres and craft their own sound, again, just as they did with Full Collapse. A lot of these songs sound like they could have been recorded at the same time as one of the best songs the band has ever written, "Jet Black New Year."
"Beyond the Visible Spectrum," "Circuits of Fever" and "Subway Funeral" really standout as examples of the new life and sound Thursday has found. There's a fresh sound there, something that sounds so new and yet so familiar. The heavier use of the keyboards really stands out and gives the band a new dimension, something that never felt fully explored before. Listening to "Circuits of Fever" and "Beyond the Visible Spectrum" gives the listener a sense that the band has grown. And if you've been a Thursday fan and know any of their previous material, you know it's different but at the same time, you know it's Thursday.
There's a dirtiness to Common Existence that harkens all the way back to Thursdays first album, Waiting, released nearly 10 years ago. Part of the reason for the nostalgia is the production but there's also a sense that the band is less concerned with melody and focused more on rocking out. But they still somehow find the perfect balance between the two that made Full Collapse so amazing. But it's a different mixture. "As He Climbed the Dark Mountain" and "Last Call" are great examples of how well they are able to mix hardcore, emo, punk and straight rock and roll.
The biggest things that stand out on Common Existence are the vocals and the use of the keyboards. The vocals feel less prominent than before. Geoff just doesn't sound as loud, which could be a good thing for a lot of people. Geoff has a voice that is either loved or hated, there doesn't seem to be any middle ground. On previous albums the vocals seemed to soar above the music, rising up and taking center stage. Now they feel buried a little bit within the music. Rather than standing out, they melt into the songs, mixing better with the guitars and the drums. It works well.
But what really gives this album its uniqueness is the excellent use of the keyboards. They never felt fully utilized before - at least not consistently over the course of a whole album. On Common Existence they feel more prominent and it gives the album a real shot in the arm. It adds another element to the excellent hardcore/punk sound the band has crafted, or reinvented, depending on how you look at it.
As far as I was concerned, Thursday was a dead band. I lost track of them with "A City By the Light Divided" and after "Kill The House Lights," an album that felt like a goodbye release, they stunned me with their split on Temporary Residence with Envy and have again surprised me with the quality of Common Existence. After listening to their newest album, it feels like Thursday is a band resurrected. Common Existence feels like a breath of fresh air, almost more so for Thursday themselves rather than for the listener. It's not the same Thursday I used to love, but the energy is still there and it feels like they have found a second wind, a new life.
Thursday have quite noticeably changed their approach to songwriting as of late. While the essence of the band is the same, they have added a lot more texture to their music. This should not have been surprising in the least as they made keyboardist Andrew Everding a full time member of the band before the last album. They utilized him well on songs like "Counting 5-4-3-2-1" and "We Will Overcome", and guess what, this CD is no exception. The songs are even more atmospheric. "As he climbed the dark mountain" is epic. The last minute and a half of "Beyond the Visible Spectrum" is almost ethereal. "Circuits of Fever" is also a standout in that respect, with the reverberated distant vocals. The atmosphere is ever present on "Common Existence."
The atmosphere is there, but what really makes this CD superior to its predecessors is the execution. Their other four CDs didn't have home run songs like "Resuscitation of a Dead Man" or "Subway Funeral." Thursday even brings things to a halt for the slow, acoustic "Time's Arrow" to keep things interesting. The album closer "You Were the Cancer" starts off slow, but quickly gains steam, and finishes the album off in a face melting manner. This album has everything that Thursday fans love about the band. The energy, the great lyrics, and songs to please fans of all their eras, perhaps save "Waiting."
This CD is well worth the listen, and at $7.99 at Bestbuy and apparently here, there is no excuse for not hearing it. Sure, there will always be the "Full Collapse" fans, but that is their loss. This is another excellent CD in which Thursday have tweaked their highly recognizable sound for the better. Highly recommended!
