3.0 out of 5 stars It's got nothing on their debut. November 29, 2011
By Alex
Format:Audio CD
Gospel isn't a terrible album by any means, but compared to their debut... well... there ISN'T really a comparison. "All I Have to Offer..." was full of incredibly catchy songs that I had constantly on repeat. Gospel is pretty decent, but not even its best track is as good as "All I Have to Offers..."s' worst. If you haven't purchased a Fireworks album just yet, make it their debut - I implore you.

This is a review for the Deluxe Edition.

As usual, I did my research before buying. I had their We Are Everywhere EP so I knew who I was dealing with, but I don't own their 1st album, so I can't offer comparison to that.

What I CAN tell you is that Gospel is full of catchy pop-punk songs that don't all sound the same. I must tell you that when I was going over the songs in the original album, I wasn't compelled to buy it. But when I factored in the 2 songs added in this Edition, I persuaded myself to buy the album and I'm SO glad I did.

I may go through every song on the album -at a later update- but for now I'll just point out the highlights & the few lowlights.

LOWLIGHTS: There are only 5 songs (of 14) that I EVER skip over on this album: 1,2,8,9,12. And 1 & 12 don't even deserve to be skipped over, it's just "Arrows" I've heard so many times from before the release that I sometimes skip it. It's a very good song though. And as for "The Wild Bunch", the country-ish intro kind of gets on my nerves, so sometimes I skip it forgetting THE REST of the song IS GOOD.

The strangely titled "I Am The Challenger"(9) is almost unlistenable due to poor recording quality and sometimes off-key singing. But I must admit it grows on you a little if you give it a chance, so don't always skip it. Even 2 & 8 are not bad. Honestly I just don't care for the choruses so I usually skip them as soon as the chorus kicks in on those. Also, same thing on "I Locked My Time Capsule" -dislike the chorus- but instead I fast-forward through it.

HIGHLIGHTS: "Paintings of Paul Revere," "The Weekend Before Halloween," and "Gloom" are probably my top 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfort for hurting ears (and lives)! August 9, 2014
By Justin
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Heart wrenching, and at the same time rocking out! What a fantastic album, with the same familiar melancholy emotion seen (heard) on Oh Common Life (one of the best albums of the decade, and tragically overlooked). This is raw, hard, powerful, nostalgic, emotive. Deep and introspective lyrics over waves of distorted guitars. Simply spectacular. Lyrics like: "I'll keep holding on... Even though nothing wants to hold back" that actually mean something (to me at least). It's tough to make a comparison to a similar band, but perhaps I might point to "In the Valley of Dying Stars" era Superdrag (another fantastic band / album). If you ever question things life, you might find solace in this album (and their next masterpiece, Oh Common Life).

I won't go into a huge diatribe about how this album is better, that album is better etc. Pure and simple if you like Fireworks and the direction Saves the Day was taking after Stay What You Are, then you will love this album! They use a variety of tempos and structure so that you're never bored and the songs are catchy. That's all you need. Well done Fireworks!!!
