The magazine recently posted their 4.5/5 star review of the album, stating “Part of what makes Oh, Common Life so gripping is the way Fireworks have pushed their songwriting into a place that sounds wholly theirs, fusing their pop-punk influences with power-pop smarts and a host of ’90s alt-rock flourishes.” The entire review can be read here: http://bit.ly/1fTjTlC. This is just one of the many rave reviews “Oh, Common Life” has received, with Under The Gun calling the album “the first perfect album of 2014”.
