He declared his frustration and newfound inspiration to write what he intended to be the band's most important work.

Recording finished in late February The album has a political motive behind it and references to the current economic climate is a topic that is covered. The album has a distinct stylistic change to Take to the Skies , most notably, more use of clean vocals and a mixture of more electronic music genres, including drum and bass , electro house and dubstep , as well as the trance and electronic hardcore which was explored on their debut album.
There is a drastic lyrical change in the new album. The band formerly wrote lyrics concerning various different subjects and made frequent use of metaphors. In Common Dreads , the band's lyrical subjects concern socio-political topics, like in "Step Up", a song that critiques free world trade.
The song "No Sleep Tonight" speaks about the ecological situation of today. The song "Fanfare for the Conscious Man" contains lyrical connotations to the injustice of the various wars the government were engaging in whilst Enter Shikari were writing the album, the line, "Our gracious queen should grasp her crown, and take a good fucking swing at Blair and Brown" confirms the anti-war views of this song.
The band expresses further political ideas in the song "Juggernauts" where the closing line is; "The idea of community will be something displayed in a museum", when coupled with the anti-capitalist and hopeless tone of previous lyrics, can be interpreted as a Pro-Collectivist stance.
