BLACK FLAMES RELEASE: AUTUMN, 2003 REVIEW: DECEMBER
I do enjoy the work of this band. Their sound choices, their arrangements
and most importantly, their zeal. Common Dream are relatively new but
their debut makes an impact that you don't generally get from a bunch
cannot really state in mere words the massive appreciation I have for
them simply existing as a band. You have songs like "Save Me"
which pull you apart and then force you to reconcile yourself and then
you have tracks like "Impossible" that are decimatingly powerful
and yet majestically restrained at the same time.
lead single "Someone Could" is another fine example of how much
incredible work is going on in Poland. Common Dream is hailing from Tarnow,
Poland. Buy it, and you'll get an astounding number of remixes, one of
which is by countrymen God's Bow and is beautifully executed. There is
also a cover of "Bloodflowers" by The Cure which the band completely
overrun and make their own. Feel the waves of subtle twilight wash over
your ears; buy this goddamned disc at all costs!
